About FarOtherSide

Hey! Thank you for your interest in helping support my FarOtherSide project!

Patreon (this website) is a place where people like you can help creators-of-all-kinds to accomplish their projects by pledging a monthly donation to their cause. Even the smallest financial contribution can help to make big dreams a reality, and there is no long-term commitment; you can cancel at any time.

FarOtherSide is my big dream: a sailing odyssey to the exact other side of the planet from the place I was born; the furthest distance a human being can travel without leaving the planet. If you're reading this without having been to the website, please go there to learn more about the project! Once I've reached my birth antipode, the FarOtherSide project will come to an end, and with it, my request for your support. With your help, I aim to accomplish something unique, educational, and hopefully inspirational.

Along with regular updates on Facebook and Instagram, the project will center around a monthly Youtube video series featuring myself and my rotating roster of crew as we travel across the South Pacific towards western Australia. The Youtube videos will be focused not just on sailing, but also on the myriad other things that I find fascinating about the nomadic travel lifestyle -- foreign cultures, science, food, weather, systems engineering, music, friends and of course adventure! With your support, I’ll be able to share this journey with the world.

This project has been a leap of faith on my part - I've already spent years of effort and liquified most of my material possessions to fund the preparations for this expedition. I’ve overhauled every major system on the boat, and invested in the best materials and technologies available. Now it’s time to set sail, and your support is critical in keeping us afloat on this mission: you can help feed my crew (who will be donating their time and skills), continue maintenance on the boat to keep us all safe, and help us to produce media content to share with you and everyone else following the adventure from home. I will continue to sail until I either reach my antipode or run completely out of money and have to stop.

We only get this one life. I intend to do something big, something that’s never been done before, something that will inspire others to challenge their concepts of what is possible. How far can you go? Will you join me on my journey to the Far Other Side?

$202.44 of $1,000 per month
If this project can reach $1000/month, it can be self-sustained. $1000 is enough to cover basic food, fuel and boat maintenance, which can be unpredictable especially while traveling in Central America. If this goal is reached, I can consider the FarOtherSide project to be my full-time job!
