Hello! Thanks for checking out our Patreon Page!

We are the Mortons on the Move. We gave up the stationary life for one where we are constantly on the move. We are full-time travelers and aspiring content creators, and would love to have you join our journey! In 2018, we spent the year working on the RV Nomads - The Movie, the full-time RVing documentary, plus planning and managing the premiere event, NomadFEST. We learned a lot about film-making and coordinating bigger productions, and about what we want to focus on in our lives and in our work.

This year, we're taking a Lance Truck Camper up through Canada and Alaska to the Arctic Ocean and creating an extensive reality-based web series of our adventure in a project we're calling "Go North." 



We're delighted that you are here because it gives us a chance to involve you in this adventure on a more personal level!



What is Patreon?

For those of you unfamiliar with Patreon, it is a platform on which artists' and creators' "patrons" pay a set amount per month or per content in exchange for the creator providing certain levels of exclusive content, involvement, and additional perks, depending on membership levels. Higher payment tiers generally equal more perks.

Big picture: This platform enables you and us to create something special together. It allows us to invite you to be closer to the action and allows you to contribute whatever you like towards our production budget, which in turn enables us to produce better videos more frequently.

Why We're On Patreon

Our channels have always been about the quality and not about the quantity. We constantly aspire to improve our gear and our skillsets, pushing the boundaries of our equipment and ourselves to higher production values. This passion not only takes time, but also money. While we do make some money off of ad revenue on YouTube, it is not enough to make a living and be sustainable.

Up until this Patreon launch, we have supported ourselves primarily with other means of income - with other jobs and businesses that we run - which takes a lot of time. In order for the Mortons on the Move to progress, something had to change.

Instead of working on other things and for other companies to make a living and make content on the side for you..why not just work directly for you, our audience, to provide more, better content that otherwise just wouldn't exist? 

We've honestly resisted starting a Patreon page for a very long time because we were unsure of what additional value we could offer patrons in the long-term, and we also didn't like the "pay to play" mentality - that we'd be cutting off certain people from being involved just because of money.  But in learning more about Patreon, we've realized that it isn't about exclusion or limitation - it's a place for closer connections and more content for everyone!



Patreon is also a place for us to connect more with you in a deeper way, which we are very excited about. Ultimately, we hope for a win-win where we get more time with you, you get more time with us, and we'll be able to move toward the freedom and stability necessary to become full-time content creators. Additionally, it'll allow us to focus more on the content that YOU want to see us producing, rather than a more widespread audience.

WE WILL STILL MAKE YOUTUBE VIDEOS!
We will actually still make LOTS of YouTube videos! This year we will probably make more videos than we've every made before with what we've got planned. Launching a Patreon page does not mean that our YouTube Channel will diminish. In fact, we intend for it to enable us to deliver YouTube content more frequently and at a higher quality!

Finally, we want to emphasize is that we're not asking for a handout. Our goal is to create a Patreon membership structure that will provide value to those who are excited to see the extra content from us, to get perks, and be more involved - all things that we wouldn't otherwise be able to do or share with anyone. 

If you find what we create helpful, entertaining or inspirational, and you want to help us create more, then we'd be excited and extremely appreciative to have you on our team! We hope that you'll consider pledging your support and joining us.

Couple of things to note:
  1. If you have a significant other, add their name to the first name field as well so we know.
  2. If you're new to Patreon, you need to create an account first and pledge second. It might seem like one step, but we've heard that doesn't work.
  3. Pledges are per video
    • You can set your max monthly amount in case we go on a video upload spree
    • We are going to try very hard to release 4 videos & posts per month (one per week)
