In this episode (26)…

The long hard winter of work is over and we’re finally getting SV Elli off the hard, into the water, and to a temporary slip. It’s an amazing time of firsts for us and we discover what it means to have good belt placement, and where forward and reverse really are on the boat. Thanks for watching, as always we ask that you comment, like, share, and subscribe! Ring the bell and you won’t miss our next episode! #proteusrising

Come follow the adventure from the beginning:


[How to live your dreams to travel the United States and the world full time.]




Who we are: We are Casz & Greg, empty nesters, Gen Xers, Adventure-Seeking Explorers, along with our two pups, Kola & Sprite. We bought a sailboat, sold our house, and bought an RV.  Now as constant travelers, we split our time between Sailboat and RV. This YouTube series documents all of it, from the dream to reality. Come with us as we venture from land to sea and all around the world. #digitalnomads

We left the chains of the corporate-sponsored suburban lifestyle, said goodbye to our mortgage, the golden handcuffs jobs, and are living a life that lets us see the world on our own terms. #alternativeliving

New season of episodes begins tomorrow!

Hello all! In a little over 24 hours the premiere of our second season of episodes begins. You will note that on YouTube all the videos have shuttled the Book and Chapter naming conventions. We’re just going with episodes from this point forward, because we realized our cleverness was getting in the way of people being able to find our videos on the YouTube platform.

Regardless, we’re still bringing you each painful step to change our lives from being anchored to a sticks-and-bricks suburban lifestyle to one of constant travel via sailboat and/or RV. We’re hoping, too that our time off to learn more about the technical stuff of creating videos and producing them will provide you with a more enjoyable experience as you follow this crazy journey of ours.

We hope that you’ll tune in for the premiere tomorrow — Noon (Pacific), Thursday, Feb. 27, 2020! We’re now a little less than three years from the moment that the seed for this life was planted and oh what a little tree of joy we have now.

With that we want to encourage you to find what your dream is and do what you need to do to make it happen. Start now. Start small. Just start. Keep true to your path and it may lead you to all kinds of wonderfulness.

We’ve lost count of the beauty we’ve seen since starting this journey. This sunset includes Venus, a Waxing Crescent Moon, and the wondrous landscape of Tuscon Mountain Park.

Peaceful sunrises & sunsets,

Greg, Casz, Kola & Sprite
