Gone With The Wynns started out in 2010 as a way to share our journey with friends and family. So, it really blew our minds when other people started tuning in and joining in on the conversations. Turns out, there are a lot of people who are interested, inspired or have a deep desire to live a similar lifestyle.

sailing as a coupleSo, we started putting more effort into our videos, photos and articles. We try to be helpful, give insight and go the extra mile to help all those wanting to know more about our unsedentary way of life.

As everything has grown and progressed…so has the time, effort and expenses to keep all this going.  Maintaining this website and keeping the videos flowing can sometimes be a beast! It’s become a full time job and one that we love.

We feel (and we hope you do too!) our website is providing a value, whether that’s the entertainment or the information.  Our website is free for all and will remain that way. Our operating costs however are not free and we are incredibly grateful for the support in whatever from it may come.

Without the ongoing support of each and every one of you: the dreamers, the planners and the fellow travelers (even the vicarious ones), none of this would be possible. We wouldn’t have made it this far without all of you and certainly can’t move forward without you either.

Below are some of the ways you can help support and show some love.  You’ll notice most of them don’t cost you a dime! So, love away!

Let us know you are with us!

 

Shop Our Gear Store

Quite possibly the easiest way to put real money in our travel and information fund without costing you any extra pennies! When we find a product that we think is great and worth recommending, we link to it and add it to our store. We have Amazon and a select few other affiliate links throughout the site and in our Awesome Gear Store, you shop as normal and if you purchase within 24hrs we receive a minimal percentage of the sale price but at no extra cost to you.  Best part is, sometimes those affiliates offer extra discounts for you too!

We are forever grateful for your support as the funds help keep us focused on producing videos and posts. Consider it your good karma for the day (or year depending on how much you spend!).

 

Want to buy us a beer or simply send a few bucks our way?  Use the paypal leave a tip button below.  We’ll toast to you while we upload our next video.

    Hey Guys! My husband and two boys have been watching you guys ever since we decided to take the plunge! We currently have a boat we are looking at but won't shove off until October, but officially by November after a little more learning etc. Our boys 11 and 7 are really stoked and talk about the journey all the time now. We just watched the 'pink beaches' episode and both my 11 year old and I were like, "Those cookies look good!". If you have that recipe on your website, which I can't find, could you shoot me a direct link? Best of luck to you guys going forward. If you happen to be around St. Marteen area in November we should meet up. We go south from there and plan to spend Christmas in Dominica. Our boat name will be Karis, website www.sailingkaris.com (super early stages right now, but started!). Cheers.

    Niki,
    Would love it if you would put together a little recipe e-book for us to purchase. How do the two of you stay so trim and fit while traveling?
    Also, some fashion advise ( where do you shop for those cute outfits?) Love your style.

    Hello Wynns, My cousin turned me on to you just this week. I told him that we were thinking of buying a boat and spending awhile living aboard. He said he follows this awesome couple that does just that. So now I'm a follower too! I'm hoping to use your videos/adventures to convince my wife it is a life worth living. We are just starting the transition process and will do our best to use your links for products.

    I expect you'll hear from me again, but wanted to let you know that your followers are spreading word about your incredible lifestyle (and some of us hoping to mimic it).

    I just saw your battery video, loved it. My wife, although she was the one that brought my attention back to the lithium batteries that I had given up on last I researched it a couple years ago, had super sticker shock when I recently bought for our boat! Every time I tried to explain her eyes glazed over and she got the YOU ARE SPENDING ALL OUR MONEY look on her face. This video did the trick, for that I thank you. On another note, I just noticed you said you maybe wanted to change your life raft. We have a 4-year-old Viking 8 person and had it serviced last year. Viking will let you know if it is serviceable and what it will cost. Our raft new is just under $4000 and the service was just under $1300. Not cheap but still cheaper than new if it still works.

    Tip to avoid a melt-down crisis. Check out YT from Everyday Food / Science Behind No Churn Ice Cream. They show you how to make No Churn Ice Cream...BUT,,,You must use a little bit of Booze to lower the freezing point. This demo includes five different flavors.

    Happy Birthday Nikki, hope you and Jason are safe and sound tonight,
    Sorry that I can only figure out how to send you a tip in the tip jar, and not support you more. I do not do paypal.
    Be safe and share with us more videos.

    Thank you for your informative, intelligently researched (experienced!) article on RVing. I'm a single guy who just retired and might take the plunge into nomadic living when my lease is up at the end of the year. Looks like I'm going to have to sell some guitars...lol. Thanks Again--Happy RVing, Jim

    I forgot to ask if you have to purchase cruising permits in the Bahamas and other Caribbean countries? We are planning to charter with a captain in the Abacos. Any suggestions?

    You guys are great. I thoroughly enjoy your videos and website and will continue to follow you on your adventure. I have a couple of questions:
    1. What was the reason for sailing on the boat that Jason and the instructor captain got seasick? Was that a boat you were interested in purchasing or just instruction?
    2. You registered (titled?) your boat with the Coast Guard and saved considerable sales tax but had to purchase a stamp allowing you stay in Florida waters for a period of time. After you leave Florida and want to stop in Florida again do you have to purchase a stamp every time you come through Florida? Say you wanted to keep your boat at a marina in another state do you have to buy a stamp or pay sales tax in that state? Just curious to see if that requirement follows you for the future.
    Suggestion - When you get to Bequia anchor in Admiralty bay and go to Max's Pizza for the best pizza in the Caribbean. My wife and I have traveled extensively in the Caribbean and are excited for you and the adventures you are going to experience.
    Good luck and thanks for sharing your experiences.
