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.

curiosity crew

So, 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!).

 

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.

    Hi to the both of you!!
    I guess this makes ME the newest guy. I also would like to thank you for your videos. You've got me hooked worse than the mahi-mahis you got on your way to Panama. I've been binge-watching your videos. Since I started when you began shopping for a sailboat, I'm now going back to watch your previous clips on RVing. However, and because I'm more of a sea buff than a "landlubber", I'd love to see what happened after you guys finished watching sloths and monkeys in Panama. Where are you going next? I know that, unfortunately, right now the Caribbean is definitely out of the question (you'd think NOAA is going to run out of letters after so many hurricanes... Irma, José, María, and so on...). It's really saddening to see the havoc created by those storms on all the people of the islands you probably want to visit, and it's impossible not to fear for the safety of people you might have already met (cruisers, and islanders alike).
    I hope, weather and insurance company allowing, that you get the chance to visit my country (Honduras... still in Central America, and not that far north). You'd get to visit the Bay Islands (we've got the second biggest barrier reef in the world, after Australia's... excellent for scuba and snorkeling), and if you do, drop me a line in advance so I can treat you to a few beers, cocktails, and a couple of tours: Mayan ruins, and Spanish forts.
    I wish you fair winds, safe travels, and happiness.
    Regards.

    I just discovered your videos and love them! They are super inspiring - I came across your Alaska videos on youtube first since I'm looking for inspiration when I travel back home in a few weeks. I'm Alaska born and raised and your videos were fresh with perspective and fun! Also, I love Nikki's style and how you both travel so fashionably. It would be cool if some of her outfits were on the gear shop page, especially all those cute jackets and accessories! Thanks for making such great content!!!

    Your story about how much you have to work, despite how easy and carefree your lives look in the videos, is inspiring. You guys are courageous (and if you're anywhere near Hurricane Irma or any storms I hope you decide to not be too courageous!). Exploring a nomadic lifestyle, or just freelancing (instead of being an employee) is something that your post on money and travel makes me feel is doable. Maybe its not a dream lifestyle (laptops on the beach every day...or just laying on the beach minus laptop!) but it's an adventure worth pursuing. And it's also an inner adventure: mind over matter; inner curiosity over a fear driven lifestyle. Thanks so much for sharing.
    Best wishes!

    :) Just saw your latest vid. My wife stopped what she was doing to see the scuba diving part. Got really funny when the video cut short because of the battery went dead. "What???!!! Dead battery??!!! Why wasn't the battery charged??!!? I wanted to see more!" So hilarious!

    Question: I noticed other catamarans with a wind turbine generator mounted on them. Any future plans for one or two to be installed on the Curiosity? Seems it would be beneficial any time there's wind. Well, as always, be careful, learn new things, enjoy, and share it with the rest of us. Dave and MaryAnn

    Jason and Nikki following you on your adventure, best of luck.

    Hmm. Ok, I'm a 'newbie' so I'm just going to address one issue Jason brought up in a recent video. 'Hate mail'??!!! Criticism??? I've been watching your videos for ......2? years or so. What is it that you're doing or saying that causes people to react so negatively? Just curious about that.

    Alright, I'll add on something else. I, for one, would like to praise the two of you (now four) for allowing me to see and learn things that I've only been able to dream about for decades. I've spent the last 38 years wrapped around jobs and family responsibilities with no 'doors of opportunities' available. It's not your adventures or sightseeing that gets my attention. My eyes are 'glued' to the screen when it comes to reviewing, researching, comparisons, rebuilds/repairs, upgrades, what ifs/why nots, .... the list is long. You're not just simple 'bloggers' (videos of pretty sceneries, fun stuff, etc.). More like documenters which puts you in my favorite category of David Attenborough, NatGeo, Nature, Science, Explorer, and so on. You are my eyes, ears, hands, and (yes) feet. Jason, for all technical, mechanical, hands on stuff. Nikki, thank you for allowing me to imagine how my wife would be comfortable living in a motorhome or on a boat although she won't because of motion sickness. But, we can still dream and watch as yours unfolds. I'll explain more about ourselves later. For now, thank you, thank you, thank you. And thank Justin and Gale for me. Have they started their own site? Oh!. My wife just told me she would like to see you do more underwater exploring. Shallow areas of course. Until my next email or reply, please be careful and live your lives to the fullest. David and Mary Ann Carey, Aurora, Oregon.

    Hey guys! Having spend the past 18 years of my life in the U.S. Coast Guard and performing my share of vessel maintenance and haul-outs, I sympathized with you during the time and money you spent in Ft. Lauderdale prepping your boat. Because of you guys, Sailing Nahoa, S/V La Vagabond, and the other catamaran vloggers, I too have pointed my dreams toward eventually living and sailing on one with my family. I am glad ya'll are safe from Irma. Have you seen the pictures of Paraquita Bay? Obviously my heart goes out to the safety and well-bing of the lives impacted there first and foremost, but I was curious what your thoughts/reactions were to the sight of all those beautiful catamarans destroyed? Why do you think so many chose to ride it out instead of sailing away? Did they have different insurance (hopefully)?

    Hi, It is Melissa of the Cat Solarium again. I am writing to see how relieved Nicki is to have sailed below the 12th parallel... Im from Florida. It's gonna be another disaster. If you guys need anything. I have a friend that lives in Panama, an American. I would gladly put you in contact with him to get anything you need. Again, I am proud that you took the long sail over but it was so worth it.

    Hello, how are you?? I am the new guy. Thank you for all the cool videos. I am living vicariously through you both. Your videos and the blue, blue water relaxes me. Very cool. Thanks.
    I keep watching nightly. I only saw a couple RV videos. But, the catamaran and the cats and the blue water is filling my head. That must mean something??
    I have been thinking about it. I know you are both from Texas. I hope both your families are okay with all the rain in Texas. That is also in my head and from my heart.
    Take care, Best Regards,

    P.S. keep making sailing videos in blue, blue water. Thx....
