Food and Fuel
reward item
$10
per month
All tiers are to firstly keep us here in Thailand until things return to normal, if enough support comes in we would look at going on the road and taking you along.
As an example tier, one would go towards a trip and help with Fuel and Food on our Journey, Hotel and expenses.
The idea would be for myself solo or if enough sponsors join then take Mem along as well. In my recent Bangkok trip for 2 nights, I proved that sadly Mem eats a lot and adds 60 percent to the daily costs lol bless her.

Hotel costs
reward item
$25
per month
This second tier is called Hotel costs but all tiers will be put together to fund the trips totally.
Money from this tier will determine the hotel we pick.
I expect on a trip to pay about 800 baht per night in a hotel, some nights down to 500. Some hotels include Breakfast which is great as Mem loves buffets lol.
If solo, I am happy in a 500 baht a night hotel as long as the room is secure in case I have to leave equipment there.

About

The worldwide illness has closed so many businesses, people have lost their lives, their jobs and so much more.
We did shut our resort but have now reopened it with no staff apart from family helping us. No bookings have come in and it seems even those in Thailand are not traveling. There is a strong possibility that guests might not get back to Thailand before Christmas.

When we moved to Thailand, we decided that we would set a red line on our savings and allocate that money as emergency money if anything went wrong. We agreed that if we got down to that line then we would head back to the UK for work and start again.

As we approached the end of the resort build we ended up going over the budget and had to use a chunk of our savings to finish it, things were still ok and the resort starting off great until the illness arrived. Nobody saw what was coming and before we could do anything we have found ourselves approaching our red line rapidly.

The reason I am restarting this Patreon page is to try and raise funds for Mem and me to get through the coming months. Our resort is costing money to keep open and with no international flights due till later this year, we are struggling to cover all costs. Local Thais are still not traveling or booking with us even though this is now possible again.

If enough people sponsor us here in Patreon we might even be able to bring the staff back ready for the returning tourists, that would be amazing to employ two local people full time who are currently out of work.

Our final choice which might have to happen is to shut the resort and either both of us or just Mem return to the Uk for work. I fear this would hurt the resort badly.

Any and all support here on Patreon is separate from Youtube.

All money raised here will be to help us stay in Thailand through this tough time and hopefully survive until tourists return.

Thank You so much for your support.

Simon and Mem
