Hey there, everyone! I'm Johnny, the driver of the Wanderlust Bus and the boss of the family contained inside (my wife let me say that). If you're here on Patreon, you've probably already been to our websitesocial media, or YouTube channel! So thanks for that!

What the heck is a Wanderlust Bus?

Webster defines wanderlust as "a strong desire to travel". We've expanded on that definition to include the need to free one's self from the chains that are keeping us all from being happy. So our family of five plus our furry friends are dumping the burden of brick and mortar life and "movin' on down the road!"

At the Wanderlust Bus, we want to educate everyone from the tip of Nanavut to the end of Cape Horn on how they can ditch their everyday doldrums and trade it for a life that is fulfilling, educational, healthy and fun. We will connect with individuals and families at events, festivals, trade shows as well as online to show the benefits of an organic, eco-conscious, and nomadic lifestyle.

Why Patreon?

We wanted a way that you, our supporters, could help us out without forcing you to buy something (though if you buy something from our store, that wouldn't hurt our feelings a bit). We found that Patreon gives us the ability to offer our patrons interesting and unique content while not breaking anyone's budget.
If you've subscribed on YouTube, liked us on Facebook, followed us on Instagram, or supported us in any other fashion then you've already helped more than you realize. We all really appreciate you and love connecting with each and every one of you who has commented or asked questions! If you've enjoyed our videos (we try), found some interesting information (our intention), or just received a dose of mild entertainment from our antics (we're optimistic), then we hope you'll consider taking our relationship to the next level. It's kind of like dating, without the need to take out the trash. 

The way Patreon works is a reader can donate whatever they want per month and the donation is recurring each month after that. So anything, from $1/month up, is truly a huge help along the way! Plus you can change your pledge amount or cancel whenever you'd like!

How will we use your support pledge?

Your generosity will help us as we go through this expedition of education and enlightenment and will be used for the following nifty stuff:
  • It provides us with the time and resources to shoot, produce, edit and publish the videos you know and love so well (at least you should...lol). 
  • It helps cover some of the costs of our consumables. These are things like diesel, propane, food, etc. These are things that will need to be replenished on a regular basis.
  • It helps cover the entrance and exhibitor fees at some of the events, shows, and festivals that we attend to promote our message!
  • It helps cover internet costs. We need to be able to upload our HD videos to all of you at a speed that won't make it take 14 hours to get you all a 10 minute video. It also helps with our website hosting and some of the marketing efforts we employ to get our message out there.
  • Finally, your contributions will help others learn how to accomplish this life of freedom. The Wanderlust Workshop (Summer, 2018) is a intensive course on changing one's perspective to provide a better life for their family and a portion of your contributions will help cover the workshop costs for some folks who couldn't attend otherwise.
How much content can a content creator create if a content creator can create content?

Tongue twisters aside, we plan to produce as much content as possible and make it accessible to a wide audience. We'll be producing videos and blog posts, hosting Q&As, hosting workshops, and much more. We feel that if we put out constant quality content showing everyone just how possible this lifestyle is, more and more folks would do it. From everything about converting a bus to an all organic tiny house to organic recipes and much more, we've got a ton of things planned!

Okay, so what's in it for you?

Let's say you find even the smallest iota of knowledge in our videos and you decide that it's worth helping, then choose the support tier that best fits into your family's budget.

As a patron of the Wanderlust Bus, you'll get access to our patron-only feed, as well as special promo offers. In the future, we'll be opening a web store and the products, services, and workshops there will be offered to Patrons at a significant discount and also in advance of the general public. You can check out all the reward tiers to see what other unique rewards we are offering.

So what's the TL:DR bottom line?

We'll keep producing great content and you decide how much our videos and content is worth to you. We will just sit back and dole out the thanks, love, and appreciation (and content) as a trade! Plus, those unique rewards we talked about earlier!

From everyone here, thank you all in advance for any support, we are glad you've got the Wanderlust Bus bug and we can't wait to meet you all on the journey! Thanks in advance!

Let's face it, those polished final videos that you see from us come from many, many takes. Some of those takes get a little out of hand. Whether its from my lack of sleep or sheer brain exhaustion, my frustration can get the better of me and sometimes I end up saying some things that are rather amusing, but just plain not safe for public consumption.


This reward tier gets you periodic videos that will give you a look behind the scenes BEFORE the editing happens.


NOTE: This tier will contain coarse language and at times completely illogical and nonsensical topics and ideas. You've been warned!

Goals
0 of 50 patrons
One of the reasons we started this project was to inspire others and to help them succeed with their jump into freedom.

Once we reach 50 patrons we will begin scheduled monthly live Q&A chats answering your questions and talking about whatever you'd like.
