Now that the excitement (chaos) of splashing the boat and immediately preparing for cyclones has passed, we’re slowly getting back to our familiar routines of living a life on the sea.

We’re Jason and Nikki Wynn. We been living #OffTheGrid and exploring the world for 10 years.
Our first six years of #travel were an epic road trip around North America.
Now we’re on a #sailing voyage about the world. Did we have any previous sailing experience, of course not!
Neither of us is overly talented, smart, rich, lucky, or retired. But that doesn’t stop us from reaching far-flung destinations, having wild #adventures and managing everything that makes living aboard a moving vessel possible.
We’re two ordinary people that just so happen to live an extraordinary life.
And this is why we publish our lives on the world wide web. We share in hopes of inspiring you to find your adventure.

  • First vid of 2021, thanks for being a part of it with us! In this crazy, uncertain, and movement restricted world, it’s important to take delight and pleasure in our daily lives as much as the adventures. For those looking for information/vids on our solar and off-grid setup, you will find that here: Also, wanted to take a moment to answer a couple of the most common questions. 🤗 ❔ “I’m curious how long were you able to stay underwater before you left the islands? And now, how long are you able to stay under?” 🗨2 min was our average before leaving the boat. Now, we’re out of practice and 1:15 is our best. Recipe for the smoothie 🍨: Shredded coconut, banana, papaya, pineapple, frozen coconut cream, ginger, cinnamon, cacao powder, water. ❔“Why aren’t you collecting rainwater” 🗨We are! That’s what the buckets on the transom are for. 😎 ❔ “Try JB weld on the cracked stanchion” 🗨the steel stick we mentioned is a JB weld product

    Jack FnTwistJack FnTwist6 ngày trước
    • @Gone with the Wynns Thank you so much. I'm having doubts between the mini 2 and mavic air 2 for my first drone.... There are pros and cons to each for my particular needs. Would you ever consider doing a little comparison, since they're sponsors? The doubt has kept me from buying for quite a while (thankfully, because the mini has improved greatly). Unfortunately, I have to use a gift card. If you have affiliate links with the big retailer, I'll gladly use it.

      Jack FnTwistJack FnTwist5 ngày trước
    • You're not, it was in this vid: But they've also added it to the post on photo gear & you can see all their gear and there are links & discount codes too! That's here: Don't forget, shopping through any GWTW product links won't cost you anything extra but it will through a few pennies into the sailing kitty! So when you're ready to buy, click over from here. Curious Minion

    Larry GrimmLarry Grimm11 ngày trước
  • Not sure if it has been mentioned but i believe the reason the stanchion bases cracked is primarily due to galvanic corrosion between the aluminum base and the stainless steel stanchions - see all the white alu-oxide in the cracks? Do yourselves a favor and spray some Boeshield T-9 or some other lubricant into the space between the base and the stanchion, thus trying to isolate the aluminum and the stainless steel. Ideally, remove all the other stanchions and isolate it with a physical barrier from the aluminum base - something like electrical tape but preferably a Delrin spacer. It's a lot of work, so spraying the bases with a lubricant on a regular basis is probably more feasible. As a matter of principle, always try to avoid getting different metals in contact with one another in the presence of water - it'll save you a lot of headaches.

  • Just rewatched your Marquesas video where you had the allergic reaction to taro leaves. I live in Hawaii and yes, many people have elevated reaction to certain taro leaves though never seen one as bad as what you had. You also said that you may be allergic to mango skins. That's also a common thing here but it is not the skin of the mango. It is the mango sap that causes a reaction. As long as you don't touch the sap, you'll be ok.

  • "Soften our assumptions" Well said. Especially for a couple of overanalyzers like you and me. You guys had my attention from "tea with a nature's head" 6 or so years ago, which backed me up to I Love (the letter) "U". A lifetime adventurist, sailor, innovator myself, I was never one to spend much time watching VIworld. I think you where my first subscription. 2020 was definitely a learning year for many of us that have the never quit attitudes.. Good to see you on the water. BTW overanalyzers is a compliment to intelligent people like you guys. Many High-IQ People Tend to Be Overthinkers: They Incessantly Overanalyze Everything There’s this old Zen parable that relates how over-analysis is a common attribute of intelligent people. A Zen master was resting with his quick-witted disciple. At one point, the master took a melon out of his bag and cut it in half for the two of them to eat. In the middle of the meal, the enthusiastic disciple said, “My wise teacher, I know everything you do has a meaning. Sharing this melon with me may be a sign that you have something to teach me.” The master continued eating in silence. “I understand the mysterious question in your silence,” insisted the student. “I think it is this: the excellent taste of this melon that I am experiencing … is the taste on the melon or on my tongue …” The master still said nothing. The disciple got a bit frustrated at his master’s apparent indifference. The disciple continued, ” … and like everything in life, this too has meaning. I think I’m closer to the answer; the pleasure of the taste is an act of love and interdependence between the two, because without the melon there wouldn’t be an object of pleasure and without pleasure …” “Enough!” exclaimed the master. “The biggest fools are those who consider themselves the most intelligent and seek an interpretation for everything! The melon is good; please let this be enough. Let me eat it in peace!”
