Welcome to the Patreon page for Expedition Sunrise!  

Expedition Sunrise is a cross country road trip of healing, discovery, and happiness.  It is my second chance at a once in a lifetime journey and I plan to take full advantage of it.  I will be documenting the journey with daily written content and weekly podcasts.  I will be documenting my day to day activities, the food I eat, the people I see, the stories I hear, and the adventures I live.  I'll be sharing the healing, personal growth, and challenges I face each day on the road.  

This journey was inspired by the loss of my best friend in the world, Toby the Wundermutt.  Without his steady presence in my life, I am adrift.  I need to reset my daily habits, routines, and goals without Toby here to keep me accountable and responsible.  

It's time to live for me for a while.  This page is a way for me to earn the financial support of the people who give me emotional and moral support every single day.  It is my chance to earn your hard earned dollars with the skills I've got in order to fund this massive trip.  

Thank you all for your love, kindness, support, and for the purposes of this page, your dollars.  They are all received with humble gratitude and a desire to make you all proud.  

Here's to one more sunrise.  I'll see you all on the road.  I hope you enjoy the journey as much as I will.

Fog City Fifty

This tier is reserved for those backers who believe in Captain Nick so much they're willing to hand over $50 to keep the dream alive.

Supporters of this tier will receive a complete, unedited collection of Fog City Tour articles.  Well over 100 pages of written content documenting my first foray into driving across this great nation.  You'll read about delicious food, interesting history, cultural encounters, and the fun I found on that first, transformative trip.  

Captain's Favor
$100 or more per month

If you are one of the generous humans who decide to support my goals with $100, you'll get a very unique opportunity offered to very few others.  

As a backer of this tier, you will be able to request a favor, content, or any other reasonable desire you can conjure.  Captain Nick will negotiate with you and do his piratical best to fulfill any reasonable request.  Get creative and have some fun with it!  

You will also receive a custom video message, written thank you, and the entirety of written content from the Fog City Tour.  

Love Poem and Polaroid
$250 or more per month

This is a very special tier indeed!  Supporters donating an incredible $250 will receive a supremely special reward.

As one of the elite donors, you are obviously an important person in Captain Nick's life and deserve to be immortalized in poem.  I will write you a personal poem of love and exaltation in your honor and share it with the world.  In addition to the hand-written original poem, you will receive a very special polaroid picture taken just for you by Captain Nick. 

Captain Nick's Travel Service
$2,000 or more per month

For one very generous donor or a collection of like-minded people, this tier is top of the line.  You won't get an offer like this anywhere else so strap in....

If you choose to donate at this level, I will travel to a city of your choosing (within the continental US or Canada) as your personal travel scout.  I will explore and experience the city, find the secret local spots, meet great people to await your visit, and document everything exclusively for you!  

With this reward tier, you will receive:

- an exclusive written article documenting each day I spend in your chosen city. It will include restaurant, attraction, historical, and other points of interest so that you need only to choose which you like most when it's time for your visit. 

- an exclusive one hour podcast relating my adventures and experience in your chosen city.

- all previous award tier rewards

- my eternal thanks and adoration


All content created as reward for this tier will be released only to tier backer.  Public release will be at the discretion of tier backers only.  

Captain's Art Collection
$3,000 or more per month only 3 left

This highly specialized tier will be claimed no more than 3 times.  

If you choose to claim this top-level reward, you will select a design to be tattooed onto Captain Nick forever.  You will work with Captain Nick to choose a design, quote, or image that brings you joy and excitement.  

Restrictions will be minimal.  I will ask you to choose a different location if I have a bigger piece planned for your chosen space.  I will veto ideas that contain hateful imagery, extremely offensive content, or could jeopardize my future work or relationship prospects.

We will discuss and negotiate any issues during our discussion period.  

You will, of course, be given the opportunity to be present when I get the tattoo.
