My Story…
If you know me, as anyone receiving this email does, you know I’m a hard-working guy, with a passion for adventure. With a new adventure pointed straight at the Caribbean and its blue waters, sandy beaches and sunny skies. I will be living and working (on a budget) from a 35-foot sailboat, that I will be readying over the next 18 months.

Why I’m on Patreon?
I love having achievable goals and working my butt off to attain it. My current goal will be to create awesome videos at least part-time. So, here’s how I got to this point:

For most of my adult sailing-life, I’ve dreamed of casting off the lines and going and keep going. Now I don’t have any intentions of cruising world-wide, at least not yet. But will be happy to keep my sails in the vast Caribbean waters, at this point.

Now is that time! I’m going to take the next 18 months to prepare for this trip and see where the sails will take me. Planning a departure out of Kemah, Texas in the Fall of 2020. Skirting the Gold Coast of Florida, down to Key West, the Florida Keys, Cuba, then onto Bimini.

Making Money While I Cruise
The next goal is to figure out how to make money while cruising, as to continue to financially support our adventures. Aside from computer work and side projects (photography), my goal will be to provide a sailing vlog, with fantastic video and photography. Of course, over the next 18 months I will continue to fund my ‘Sailing Kitty’.

Now video and photography are not newly discovered hobbies, as I’ve doing both for over 30 years and I’m ecstatic and excited to begin to prove to myself and to you, that this adventure will be worth watching and engaging in! I look for forward to sharing the places we visit, highlighting the culture, history and wildlife of each unique place we visit through video and images.
Filming, editing and releasing 2-4 feature episodes per month (realistically closer to 2-3), done mostly in my free time. To continually release high-quality , consistent videos for our journey may prove to be impossible without your help.

So, with the advice of fellow sailors, decided to get on Patreon!

The Five Hundred Challenge ($250 per episode)
My first goal on Patreon is the Five Hundred Challenge. If we can earn $250 per episode, we should be able to make videos, at least ¾ time, for the next couple years as we continue to live the frugal and minimalist lifestyle that will present itself. This means enough money for groceries, minimum boat maintenance, clearance and travel fees, thus freeing up time to making epic videos!

What Does this Mean To You?
Your continued support will enable us to focus more time and energy into the creation process so we can: Release episodes with relative frequency, plus additional episodes, if I find something super cool to share with you guys!

Live Streams (when internet is good) with you, Live Television! Giving you advance notice, of course as well as unedited, short live-clip video’s. All the while, collecting feedback from you, to become your favorite YouTube Channel!

After the Five Hundo Challenge
The five hundred challenge is a shot-term goal for us. If we can earn $500 per episode, we can sail our hearts out and continue to make videos on this minimal budget. However, we may have to put this project on hold along the way to be able to financially tackle any major boat maintenance costs, associated with this navigation…or if video/photography gear emergencies arise.
Albeit, I’d like to keep filming thru these challenges, I’d like to do this for the next 5 years (or more!)!

Therefore, anything we earn on Patreon after the $500 per episode, will be invested into three funds:

The Boat Fund. Keeping her fully equipped with brand new (for the most part) gear necessary for continued sailing. We realize continued sailing puts a lot of stress on her and will require constant maintenance and repairs, as well as a full-out overhaul, once her elements reach their life-span (sails, rigging, etc.). This will be an important fund

The video fund. As far as camera, editing and data storage capabilities right now, I have the basic, bootstrapped package. If we start to earn more than $500 per episode, not only will I be able to upgrade the camera and editing gear, I will certainly be able to off-set the internet expenses, that would prevent regular featured episodes from being posted. This will also provide better production tools for live-casts, as well as creating better feature episodes, over and over again.

The lifestyle fund. We’ll be living on a budget. Probably will for the duration. But, we would love to be able to put some $$ aside to handle any health emergencies we encounter. Also, for those times we want to be on the dock, with all the amenities, like water, electric, internet and hot showers!


SO LET’S DO THIS!

We’ll be releasing 2-4 episodes per month! We want to become your favorite YOuTUbe Channel and will produce the best video’s we can to attain this! So, send us messages, comment on the videos, chat with us, share what you’d like to see more of, or what you don’t like!
