About Us

Hey, we’re Jason and Nikki Wynn and this is our virtual home base. Way back in the day (circa 2011) we traded in everyday life to satisfy our wear-out-your-shoes sense of adventure. Now, the world is our home and this is where we share our discoveries and lessons learned along the way.

Our first six years of travel were an epic road trip around North America with an awe inspiring highlight being our trek around Alaska.  We might live there if we weren’t suffering from Sedentary Lifeaphobia and summer lasted forever.

Now we’re on a sailing voyage about the world. Our vessel is our home and we’re always on the move with an irrefutable desire to search, explore, discover, grow, learn and share.  We’re not wordsmiths but fairly handy with a camera, the video below will offer some highlights of what’s going on around here.

Now, if we’re going to be hanging out, there’s a few things we should tell you.  We’re often accused of being overly happy (mostly by grumpy people), too clean (mostly by dirty people) and optimistically naive (mostly by dream crushers).  All potentially true except for the too clean part.  We’re really not that clean.

Neither of us are 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.

We have zero shame in admitting we want to squeeze as much out of life as possible.  A life full of extraordinary moments is for anyone willing, and wanting, to go after it.  You know, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness…yea, we’re all about it.

There are plenty of opinions about how one should go about life, travel, adventure and everything in between.  Variety, it’s the spice of life, right?

As for us, we like to travel with the comforts of home. It’s not like there are awards given for roughing it while exploring (don’t tell the guy on the trail with nothing but a flint knife and a canteen, he’s already in too deep). Perpetual travel is a lifestyle for us, not an ongoing vacation and having our home as the vessel makes it more sustainable long term. Vacations are short term, a means of escaping the day to day.  For us, its about creating a life we don’t need to escape.

Nonetheless, the more of our planet we see, the more we want to preserve it.  So, we try to go about it all as responsible humans.

If you’ve made it this far, you mind as well grab a drink and hang out a little longer.  Here’s a smattering of the things we like to share.  Kick your feet up and click around a while.

  • The Adventures – We’re utterly addicted to new experiences and obsessed with searching out Indiana Jones worthy adventures.  Some people collect stamps or coins, we collect pin drops.  Nothing makes us happier than adding a new story to our interactive travel map.
  • Living Off The Grid –   Because our home is our mode of transportation, being self-sufficient just makes sense. We’re always looking for and learning about ways to create, store, use and manage our resources. Batteries, solar systems, creating drinking water, managing waste and more.
  • Sailing – Exploring the world like its 1492. We want to sail across oceans, weather storms and discover adventures we don’t yet know exist.
  • Think Local – Each place we visit our goal is to support the local community, avoiding chains and seeking out local purveyors.  We’re always on the hunt for a good farmer’s market, coffee roaster, distillery, brewery, or a salty fisherman to follow into a hole in the wall.
  • Fave Gear – We’re don’t like encouraging consumerism but any grand adventure requires some gear.  Over our years of perpetual travel, we’ve purchased a lot of gear that has stood the test of time. We’ve never recommend anything we don’t personally use and love.
  • Make Money and Travel – This series exists as a source of inspiration by sharing examples of real people around the world making money from anywhere and living the lifestyle they want. It proves that where there is a will, there is a way.
  • RV’in – Hitting the road in style, RVing is ride anywhere, anytime with no flight reservations or hotels to be booked. While staying in a campground with lots of amenities has its allure, there’s nothing better than driving deep into the wild where the views are never ending and the sounds are au nat-ur-el!  We call it Wild Camping and it’s all about leave no trace and it’s as easy on the pocket book as it is on the environment. From tips and tricks to buyer beware, we’ve learned a lot about RVing!

A Brief and Incomplete History

At 28 years old we made a decision to make a major change in our lives because were craving an adventure.  Sure, we enjoyed our artsy careers (Jason as a photographer and Nikki as a makeup artist) and urban life in Dallas, TX but something was missing.  As outdoor enthusiasts we felt the need for more of a “back to nature” adventure.  With lofty dreams and chatter of cross country travel and living outdoors, came the idea of purchasing an eco-friendly and fuel-efficient RV.

With our new found excitement, we made the big decision to close the doors to our studio and say audios to our clients (big ones too like Susan G. Komen, Exxon Mobil and the CW Network just to name a few) to travel the country. So, we sold it all (and we really mean all 4000sq ft of it!), packed up our 2 cats (we’re not crazy cat people, just crazy about ours), and hit the road! Some thought we were insane, others called us genius… the debate is still going.

At first, we thought we would hit the road for about a year.  We were in search of an adventure, a new place to call home and to find our very own meaning to the term American Dream. What happened instead is one very epic, long winded and life changing adventure.

We quickly learned that the typical…boy meets girl, couple gets mortgage payment, 60 hour work weeks, 2 ½ kids, two weeks of vacation a year and if you survive, retire at 60… sounds exhausting and it isn’t our version of the American Dream.

Some call what we have wanderlust…but that just doesn’t seem to fit us. What we have is more of a phobia…a straight up fear of missing out on life and not seeing the world.  What we have is a full blown case of Sedentary Lifeaphobia (yep, we made that up) with no hope for a cure.

So, what’s the treatment you ask?

Learn to make money while we travel, keep moving and start a support group. And that is exactly what we’ve done! This Gone With The Wynns site has become our home base. A place to share the challenges, discoveries, ask questions, have conversations and all things related to this crazy un-sedentary lifestyle.

If you are a Sedentary Lifeaphobic, join us as we explore this little known, infectious and wildly adventurous phobia!

They are both rescued, (of course) and love exploring new backyards, lounging on the deck, pooping in the wild and going on long hikes. Together they keep the mouse, chipmunk, squirrel, moth, grasshopper, rabbit, snake, lizard, praying mantis, turkey and beetle population in check.  Our cats are world class travelers and their curiosity and ability to adapt never cease to inspire us.

People always ask, “aren’t you worried they’ll get eaten by a coyote or something?”, to which we respond, “the coyote is the one you should be worried about!”. Cleo has attacked more than one dog in her day….and she wins, by a long shot.

Cleo – The true essence of a woman and a cat! She’ll love you one minute and hiss at you the next! If you catch her on a bad day she’ll let you know it! Watch out boys…..this girl is trouble!

traveling cats

Singa – This cat acts more like a dog. Enjoying long walks and a good game of fetch, he’s looking for attention on the road. Look out felines, this guy is on the prowl and he’s a lover not a fighter.

    When sailing the deep, can you stop? I know you can't anchor, but is just drifting an option? And does someone need to be on watch 24/7? Obviously there are solo sailors out there who must sleep, does radar alert you about other ships approaching?

    Thanks, and love to you both.

      Hey Tommy. I suppose drifting is always an option but it's never a good one. The wind and currents could take you many miles off course, which could increase your travel time quite a bit. Drifting will also put you at the mercy of the wind and current and could make for truly uncomfortable (and depending on weather, very dangerous) boat conditions caused by wallowing broadside in the waves. Curiosity does have an autopilot and radar, but if you have 2 people on board the wise thing is to always have someone on watch. Radar can't detect smaller boats reliably, bad weather can blow up in an instant when delayed reaction time can mean damage to the sails or the boat (or worse), and autopilot is like anything else on a boat - it can break. Nikki and Jason talk about how radar didn't detect small boats in https://www.gonewiththewynns.com/approached-at-sea and about a storm that blew up unexpectedly here: https://www.gonewiththewynns.com/longest-passage-biggest-storm

        Well what about a drift anchor or drogue in that case? Is that a method that can allow them to have a couple hours of down time during the night?

          Sure, there are lots of ways to keep your boat relatively on course and solo sailors have to use these methods when they nap. But if there is more than one person on board a boat, by far the safest thing to do is to take turns standing watch. Weather and wind can change in an instant, and they did pass other boats when making the crossing. Boats have swamped in the time it would take you to wake up and get on deck to begin assessing the situation, or you could be hit by another boat and have a hole punched in your hull. Why take that risk when they seemed to have worked out a good rhythm of rest and long naps?

    Hey Wynns! Love the videos. Just saw the one off the coast of Columbia, very scary. I know you said you have your security process and want to keep it secret. I completely understand. Please do a search on "Czech Flare Gun" Perfectly legal to carry on board anywhere but these can fire large flares and rockets at the bad guys if necessary. Many times more effective than the little plastic orange flare guns at West Marine. Stay safe!

    My wife and I also have 2 cats and there is one thought that keeps coming back to me. Perhaps you've talked about it already and I just haven't watched it yet. How do you deal with cats going #1 and 2? (litter box?) The boat seems too clean to have the problem of a stray litter pebble. Besides, the cats are always on table tops so there must be something that I don't know. Pray tell.....

      Cleo and Singa are trained to wipe their feet. Ha ha - not really. The litter box is in a cabinet which keeps a lot of the litter contained. Nikki also runs a tight ship so things are always in tip-top shape.

    We did a lot of this--with kids no less. Never completely full-time, but lots of travel and adventures amid a rather alternative lifestyle. I know cats are less demanding (and yours are really beautiful), but now that I’m a grandma six times over, I’m really happy about the kids even if it prevented full time adventuring. We settled somewhere that has a lot of offer environmentally, including the sea, mountains, and desert, so are still having adventures in our retirement. This is not to challenge your fabulous and courageous life, just to add a variation for those who already have kids or want them and worry that it might mean missing out on travel/adventure. We are not rich and lived very creatively along the way. I do wonder what you do about healthcare (maybe that’s addressed here somewhere, I’ll look around)? Obviously, you are both very healthy, but one never knows when that can change. I guess if you travel you can take advantage of cheaper options in other parts of the world. Hopefully, you’ll be healthy for a long time to come, but we have found as we age, in spite of overall good health, there is a lot more “maintenance” these days! All the best, the boat is amazing!

    Y'all inspired us to follow through with our desire to live and travel full-time in an RV. My husband served in the military for 27 1/2 years which enabled us to explore various parts of the world, and it cultivated our gypsy spirits. We are both now in our early 50's and decided to re-embrace what we were missing after we tried settling down. Thank you for your encouraging videos, blogs, etc.

      Note to Andrew - we met a couple in the Bahamas, sailing with 2 golden retrievers on board (Antares 44)! They weren't living aboard full time, but still. Although my boyfriend did give up his beloved
      golden retriever (to relatives) when I bought my sailboat, because we travel between my boat on east
      coast/Bahamas and my home in Montana. It can be done though, and it would actually be easier
      if you were living aboard full time.

  • Hi to you both. I was just wondering if at some point you could provide a breakdown of the 'typical' week in terms of how much time you would spend sailing vs working and if working, then boat maintenance vs web/image maintenance and video editing (as that must be a fair chunk of earning capability).

    Thanks in advance. Loving the vids (more entertaining and helpful for us in the planning stages than SLV) and very jealous of the boat and on the lookout for one of our own. Stay safe.

    Hey Nikki, Jason, Justin and Dale!! I am and ER doc here in Cali and I was contemplating coming down again and doing another trip with the Floating Doctors (I've done 3 already) from 9/24-10/1 where they will be in Ensenada de Punta Avispa, about a 3 hour panga boat ride from Bocas but for you guys a protected and beautiful bay with some of the most remote villages and breathtaking beaches/jungle in Panama. IF you were interested in really and truly seeing an untouched area along with becoming immersed in Ngobe tribe and culture for a few days, way way way off the normal tourist path then I would be happy to act as your liaison and interpreter (since I am fluent in espanol) and get you access to go with the group. I have my own group of a couple of ER nurses I would be bringing down with me. IF you guys are interested give me an email and I start the wheels in motion. The trip and medical clinics will be from 9/25-9-27/28 and the best part is you can stay anchored in your own boat in a safe harbor and get an experience you would have never had otherwise. The bay you would anchor in is the large bay (no name) by Kuaspin, and encompasses Punta Avispa, Playa Gallinazo and Punta Sirain. I have seen many a catamaran anchored there on previous trips to the area. Oh and local meals prepared by the Ngobe for lunch and dinner for all the volunteers daily. On google maps look for restaurante vista mar to see the beach on the other side of the peninsula. Hope to hear from you guys, been following since your were in Alaska. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MMFLEHJRbDQ

Now that I am older, I seem to want to stay at home. Also, I want to see my grandchildren more, which would be more difficult travelling. Do you think there will be a time in your life when you are ready to stay in one place? Do you see children in your future?

    Hi Nikki and Jason,
    I have an old RV 38ft and had been living fulltime for 2 years with one of my brothers. Right now it's in storage and I'm actually thinking of downsizing I don't need as much room but that old RV brought out a lot of things I felt I needed to do to get completely off grid especially when the generator died. So after watching a few of your videos i.e. the Solar Power and the toilet compost tips I'm looking to get a Dodge Ram Pro-master High Roof and building my own little tiny house on wheels for me and possibly
    a Tibetan Mastiff I been thinking about getting. you guys are so cool to share your experience and knowledge along the way. Hug's to you both.

    Love, LOVE your videos, from RV'ing to sailing. My wife and I haven't missed any, and look forward each week to watching your latest.

    We are land lovers, but watch with awe as you go scouting about on the water. But we were wondering if it's too warm in your stateroom to sleep. Obviously, an A/C system would require running the generator, but I suspect that there is no A/C unit anyway. Is that correct?

    I see the seats are often used to catch a nap on, is that because there is a breeze there but not in the interior?

    Thanks, and best of luck on your voyage!

    Hi! You two are amazing and are literally living the life of our daydreams. My boyfriend and I have found ourselves at a crossroads; continue down the path of 9-5 monotonany and three weeks a year of vacation, and screw-it-all-let's-bail and live free of responsibility and societal weight. Just need to pick! We're both handy, educated, hard workers who aren't afraid of a challange; but have questions that we are having a hard time finding answers to with our network of day and overnight sailors. We want to venture off to live at sea, but what is something you wish someone told you before you went? We live in New England and sail a few months of the year up and down the coasts of Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts; weather permitting. That being said, foul weather here is a totally different beast than the Caribbean; equally challenging, different elements. We'd love an opportunity to pick your brain and get your advice as to what to focus on. Cheers and keep living the dream 😍🙌⛵️

    Hello!,

    My girlfriend and i want to do exactly what you two are doing! i have a few questions. Since you are from australia, where did you buy and register your campervan? Im assuming UK? Also what insurance did you end up getting for your campervan? Did you have an address to register all of this or did you use a friend/family address?

    Do you have to return to the country of the insurance once per year to renew your insurance? I was told that you need to go back each year to renew and get any additional paper work done such as the MOT in the UK.

    If you can share this information it would alleviate TONS of stress for myself as for the last few weeks i’ve been tirelessly research this exact information and it’s hard to find. Your experience could change my life.

    Thank you for anything you can help with! 🙂

    Upon centuries of consternation.
    Across a fallen age.

    Evermore Abundantly.

    Thank you for stepping out in faith. Thank you for sharing your discoveries.

    As you go back to the US for a brief spell - one recommendation for staying connected is to consider signing-up for Project Fi by Google (https://fi.google.com). You pay $10/GB of data (which is reasonable), but the best part is that it works in 120+ countries and you'll never really have to deal with local sims. As long as you're in an area with cell coverage, you'll be able to connect at the fastest speed available. And if you have Wifi, you're US number will work free of charge. I've used in India and Brazil and presume it would work throughout the Caribbean and beyond.

    Hi Jason and Nikki ! I just found you guys a couple of weeks ago. I've binged on many of videos, read thru much of your written blogs, signed up for emails, and signed on as a patron ! Now I am so excited to sign on as crew on the " curiosity ". ! I love what your doing and would love to join your adventure ! I absolutely Love meeting new people, and going on adventures! Isn't that what life's really about ? I always a say a stranger is just somebody you have not meant yet.
    I'm a 53 year old female, whom started off on your path and then family issues arose that held me back some what til now.
    I grew up in south Florida ,on the water. I spent many spring and summer vacations cruising the Bahamas on my parents cabin cruiser. I graduated collage from FIT with a BS degree in applied technology, sport diving operations and marine technology. While in collage I worked crewing day sails on a cateram as well as dive mastering local dive charters in palm beach.
    When I graduated I was NAUI AND a PADI Master diver trainer. I then spent the summer living on and teaching scuba on a sail boat in the BVIs. Upon my return I worked local and Bahamian diving charters. And I sat for my 100 ton captain license. Then I worked for a busy dive operation as training director.
    This is the point where I got side tracked. I got married and had three children. I continued to work in the dive industry for a while. And then worked as a travel agent for a while.
    When my oldest was young my parents built a house in Costa Rica on the pacific ocean. I traveled back and forth spending approx half of the year down there. I did so for several years.
    Finally when my youngest started school I volunteered for the Loggerhead Marine center. I had a wonderful time at this falcility. Firstly by working in retail and guiding turtle walks. Eventually , I got involved in fund raising. I started and ran several large fund raising events. As well as chaired events such as their multi million dollar new building ground breaking.
    The coolest thing I've done and what might be most interesting to you is that I'm a " sea Turtle wrangler "! Lol ! Now your asking your self, what is she talking about? Here it is in nut shell. While working at the marine center I worked with the biologist who was doing a study on Hawksbill seatutles.we were permitted to go out and capture them. We did what I like to call " an alien obduction with them ". We would bring them up on the boat measure, take blood and tissue samples. And give them some bling, i.e. tags and microchips. Oh and of course take same " glamor" shots. Durning this five year study I helped capture and recapture many hundreds of turtles.. Much was learned durning this study and there is still more to be learned as many of these "participants " are believed to have gone back to there original birth place to nest. These areas include the southern carribean and the coast of Central America. How cool would it be to run across some of these guys?
    Well, this was a fun little trip down memory lane, now I need to get you a real resume and video. I have to say that the video will be the hardest part for me. I'm not really comfortable in front of or behind the camera. But I'll get over it. That's how we grow!

    I'm a plant-based-eater artist/artisan who's tried all sorts of indoor organic gardening/laundry solutions. Since you "make" your own water, I thought you might consider the idea of sprouting your own organic vegetables while away from grocery stores. Mung beans can be harvested within 24 hours and are a good source of protein, vitamin C and can be used in salads, tacos, etc. It's not for everyone, but I've found it great to say, "yeah, there's always food around here!" Either way, thank you for your tips and tricks on off-grid living...keep on a keepin' on!

    Hi Jason and Nikki- I just want to say thank you. Thank you for creating Gone With the Wynns. Thank you for being perpetual travelers and amazing documentarians. Most of all thank you for being you! We just bought our first Coach (2017 Momentum Fifth Wheel Toy Hauler) and are setting off this June for full time travel. I can honestly say this is only happening because of your website, lifestyle, and willingness to share all of the wonderful moments along the way. You were the motivation we needed to see that 1. It can be done, 2. How to do it 3. The time is now. We also love that you both seem so similar to us. We have 2 cats, are lacto ovo pesco vegetarians, love beer and food, are working to get our rig 100% off the grid although we do not foresee a sailboat in our future. While we know your exploring the open ocean now, we just wanted to let you all know that what you do is important, needed, and very much appreciated. THANK YOU! Happy Sailing!

    Can you explain what you do with your waste from your composting toilets? If it were not a composting toilet, what do sailors do with their waste? Just thoughts the kids had wondered about, especially if you dont go ashore that often. Oh and thanks so much for details in all your videos, I was hoping for a daylight video of your crossing to see what its like, we have thought that some day after we are done rving, we might get a boat to travel around after maybe the kids are gone.

      For holding tank or compost, any time a boat is 3 miles or more offshore it is legal to dump the waste overboard.

    Hi Jason And Nikki, I so love your videos and the information you disseminate to us plebs :-)
    One thing that has struck me in the conversion from RV to Sail is that you have kept the ohhhh so inefficient marine fridges supplied with the cat, and not retrofitted something akin to your old samsung to the cat. Fiberglass shells are as you would now know, laid out over wood. Framing is wood, enclosures are some sort of marine based ply over the frames, then fiberglass skinning over the top. How come you haven't bulldozed the anchor like fridges to retrofitting a domestic style fridge. ? The dometic is compressor fridge/freezer and if you can run that, why not a domestic fridge, refrofitted like in the RV ?

    • Nikki Wynn

      February 27, 2017 Reply

      That is an easy answer, time and money. Every single project takes a substantial amount of time and money. We have a very long list of projects we would like to do and each of them is substantial. We have to prioritize them and major parts of the boat, especially ones directly related to our safety at sea are at the top of the list. So, well deal with lots of things as is for now and slowly work on projects over time. But yes, sometime in the future we would love to swap out our fridge but for now, the one we have works.

    Just a young and aspiring cruiser who's found your videos along with other research I've conducted. I've discovered it's common to remove all of the paper wrapping on canned goods (labeling them with permanent market then), cleaning all of the glue from the cans, and using a chlorinated bleach + h2o solution to wash all surfaces, including lightly soaking fresh fruits on deck before stowing in the cabin. Many of these people also refuse to bring cardboard boxes/packaging from food or other things into the boat. Turns out cockroaches in these tropical locations LOVE to lay their eggs in the glue used to fasten canned paper labels, and in generally corrugated materials.

    Wondering if you have been doing the same or intend to, and also since I know you're environmentally friendly if you've found any solutions that would achieve killing bug eggs, etc. in this manner like bleach does. Not sure if vinegar would or not!

    Thanks for all of the continued inspiration.

    Hey guys! We love everything you do and we are looking into to an RV to start traveling ourselves! just curious on a couple of things about your cats! (we have 3 ourselves!)

    1. How did you train them to use harnesses, or did you?
    2. What kind of litter do you guys use, I remember Nikki saying it was Biodegradable!
    3. Do they ever feel cooped up even when they get to go out a decent amount?

    again you guys are a huge inspiration so keep up the amazing work!

      The litter is World's Best Cat Litter brand. Training to harnesses (or getting them used to riding in an RV or car) works best when they're kittens. Cleo & Singa get plenty of outdoor time, but Singa would probably live outside if he could!

    2. How do you learn about all of the systems you have, so that you can fix them yourself when out to sea?
    3. How did you convert your galley fridge to all fridge, no freezer?

      Haven't gotten seasick on our boat yet! We've even had family on board who aren't used to being on the water and they all did well too. Many people say Catamarans have a tendency to ride differently and people often get less seasick...but in general the bigger the boat the better!

    Great video tour of the catamaran. One question with regard to the main bedroom closets. The looked pretty crowded. My question is why so many cloths and shoes? If it was me I would ditch the cloths and just go nude! Open spaces and not much chance of running into anyone while being nude! Less cloths to carry or wash. Sounds like a no brainer! Would love an answer.

    Hi Nikki and Jason. I think my husband and I are living in the parallel but reverse universe you guys occupy. We spent almost 9 years as full-time live aboards on our 47' sailboat, and one month ago put it up for sale and bought an RV. (Also strange but true, my maiden name is Wynn.) Like many new RVers, we found this site and have enjoyed watching your videos and reading your stories. While we're accustomed to living and working in a tiny (floating) home, this box on wheels is taking a little getting used to! We miss the water, but really look forward to new adventures on land. While there are some similarities, I'm sure you'll agree that full time RVing and living aboard a boat full time has enormous differences. I have a folder on my iPad with more than a dozen apps for navigation, weather, tides and currents, etc. that surely won't do us much good crisscrossing this fine country in an RV. While living and working aboard, we rode out both Hurricane Irene (while on the Chesapeake), and Superstorm Sandy (while in New Jersey). Our plans this year would have put us in Charlston just in time to meet Matthew, so I guess it's a good thing we ditched the sailboat for an RV when we did. Anyway, just wanted to say thanks for sharing all the great RV tips and adventures, and wish you the best in your new life as boaters. Wishing you calm winds and following seas, Carole

      Maybe we are in a parallel universe! Yes, while there is lots that translates from RV to Boat and vice versa, they are very different creatures. I think its good to experience both, makes you appreciate the neuances that much more. One big bonus of an RV is the fact that you can indeed usually out run the weather. I can't believe you have 2 hurricanes under your belt! Oh the stories you must have. Thanks so much for taking the time to share your story with us and say hello! Maybe we will bump into you one day while we are all out wondering about the world.

    Hey Jason and Nikki,
    I have been following your sailing adventures for awhile now and love how you have made your dreams happen, regardless of other people's opinions or putdowns(lets face it, being popular sometimes means criticism and unappreciated comments haha). When I was five my parents set out to make their dreams a reality too. Everyone thought we were totally nuts but we had a dream that we wanted to make happen regardless. My dad grew up in New Zealand and it had always been his dream to sail back there someday. So, through a long process and a lot of research and planning we made our dream happen. In 2000 we sold everything we had, bought an RV, packed up all 7 of us kids, ages 3 to 17, and set out for Florida.. After a few months of prep in Miami we set sail on our 60 ft. catamaran and never looked back. We never made it to New Zealand but we had several amazing experiences despite never reaching our end goal. We cruised all through the Caribbean and Bahamas before landing in Jamaica where we spent the next 4 years. We ended up sailing back to Fort Lauderdale Florida due to medical needs but we still live on the boat and sail it whenever we can. My parents are currently doing some repairs and saving money to head out again, this time with the good chance they actually might make it to New Zealand haha. They empty nester now and want to do humanitarian and missionary work in the Pacific Islands for a couple of years before they settle down and actually live in a condo or something haha. I'm grown and off in college now but I hope to go live with them for awhile when they shove off.
    I know that was a long story, but I just wanted you both to know that you can totally make this happen. Making dreams come true takes a lot of work( Believe me, I know. I was the one swabbing the deck and varnishing rubrails haha) but it is always so so worth it. I look back on my life with so much gratitude for the experiences that I had and was so grateful that my parents worked hard to provide those opportunities. Things were scary fOr us too but with practice and time you get the hang of it and it becomes second nature. You got this! Have so much fun and enjoy it while it lasts, however long that may be. I think I needed the reminder that I can follow my dreams too and you both helped me realize that more than you know. Thanks So much and keep up the good work. If you ever have questions about were in the Bahamas are worth seeing or if you ever land in Jamaica or Cuba let me know. I've got the hooks ups;)

I don't know what dream or goal you are working towards right now, but it sounds like your parents did an awesome job of showing you anything is possible. We are headed to the Bahamas in a couple of weeks! After that we will hit up Jamaica and Cuba...so please do tell us your fave spots!

We have a few years before we can make this dream a reality, but I'm slowly getting "on board" with the idea. We live in a small West Texas town, so knowing y'all are Texans as well gives me hope that we can DO THIS! We're twice your age, and have probably half your bank account, but I think we will be ok.

    Good morning,
    I see that you are in Riviera Beach waters this morning. That was my work place for over 35 years as I was a pilot at the Port of Palm Beach/ Lake Worth Inlet. Have been following your posts for a while now and enjoy watching the progress you're making. Would like to make a couple of suggestion as to the terminology you're using in the videos. I realize it's a steep learning curve and you have many things to remember but these are important. A map is a chart, big one! Bow is forward stern aft. Port left, Starboard right. Windward and leeward sides is also is a good designation when sailing. These are very common terms that will make you sound like old salts and won't make more seasoned hands cringe. One other thought. I've seen many unfortunate situations over the years that have cost people their boats and sometimes their lives. Over confidence and being in a hurry when common sense tells you to pay attention to weather, sea conditions and your abilities should help make this a wonderful adventure. Sailing is a wonderful way to travel, I wish you many years of fair winds and calm seas.

I am seeking your advice on 1 question : When choosing a MH for this adventure, we're trying to stay within your guidelines for length (maneuverability, getting into State Parks etc). Of the MH's you've had the pleasure of using, which was top on your list for reliability, functionality and fuel economy?

(We're in our 60's and he's going to retire next year. : ) We rented RV's when the kids were at home and had some horrible experiences, mostly consisting of tire blowouts that caused crazy damage to the coaches, though thankfully not accidents and no one was ever hurt.

    I came across your youtube channel while searching for catamarans. You really do a great job with your videos and they look really professional. I hope you can continue with it. Specially interesting for me is your approach to buy a boat with having any idea how to sail. Because I am about the same, but my wife calls me totally stupid. So I really follow how you learn to sail. Show us what and how you learn and what kind of mistakes you do while learning. As someone watching, I learn more from the mistakes other do than what they do good. You simply can try to avoide to make the same mistakes. I learned a lot from watching other people traveling with the boat. From how to buy a proper boat, how to maintain it, handle it, ... The standard things you learn in a sailing class, but the real life the hard way by yourself or the easy way by experience of others like you who do the real thing. So don't hide your mistakes. They are the most value part. And because you are a so good looking couple, even watching doing you the most stupid things is still fun!

    Just watched your video on the first sail and after watching I had to dig into your blog some to try and find some information on something I saw in the video. Could you please elaborate a little on the sticker you put on the mast that allows you to stay in Florida for 90 days. Is this sticker to show that taxes on the boat were paid to another taxing entity at the time of purchase? Or is it like a time stamp to show when you will have to pay the Florida boat use tax of 6%?

    Found my way to some of your YouTube videos after following the Bumfuzzlers for a number of years. I have been a sailor on and off for many years and wanted to suggest some key resources for your crash course on blue water cruising. Steve Dashew has a lifetime of blue water cruising and boat design behind him and over the years collected many of his lessons in a number of books. He no longer sells the books, but he now gives them away as PDF files on his Set Sail website, http://www.setsail.com/free-books/. These are wonderful books to have on hand for reference. I can recommend two other great reference books that you can't go wrong having on board: Nigel Calder's "Boatowner's Mechanical and Electrical Manual", and Beth Leondard's "The Voyager's Handbook". You've got a steep learning curve ahead and these books cover most aspects of blue water cruising. If you've got a question about cruising under sail, you are likely to find an answer in these books.

    Just watched your catamaran video that a friend (Jake Moe) sent me. We did that trip on our cat INDIGO three years ago in 40-50 knots of wind and 15' seas. Took 8 days. Fortunately our INDIGO is a much better boat (2008 Leopard 46) so we didn't have any problems other than hanging on tight with a triple reefed main sailing at 10 knots on a beam reach. Go to: facebook - Sailing with INDIGO.

    I just watched your latest video on your search for the perfect catamaran. First, I wish you the best on finding the what you truly want. I am also however torn on my emotions. I have found your RV insights simply great... But you are switching... Uggg.

    I am also however getting old ... but when my kids were younger I sailed with scouts on two trips at the Boy Scout National Sea Base (which you drove right by on Islamarada) . You are living .... The thoughts that went through my mind. Good for you!!!

    Who knows.. I might act act on those dreams and buy a cat some day... If I do your detailed research Will simply be invaluable.

    I am feeling the pressure to say something here. If I don't..... I feel like I will belong to those who just watch and read awesome contents, like yours, on internet without even saying "thanks." I love every bit of your presentation, thoughts, values, and your professions that allows you to pursue your dream. At first, I thought you guys are goofing off with your rich parents' wealth. But when I learned that you can live your dream life with your unique professions, I felt so guilty... at the same time, proud (hmmm can I say that to the strangers?). I am an Asian-American old man and I also work in the beauty industry, publishing a small salon magazine. I always felt blessed to work in beauty industry that gives me freedom (in time wise, and also opportunities to travel and meet all sorts of people) while providing me for living as well. Seeing a couple who also work in my industry and stretching further into the dream is priceless. Love you guys and I will be your greatest fan.

    Hi Jason and Nikki

    I am an American living in the landlocked country of Switzerland. However, my dream is also to buy a catamaran and sail the world with my wife. We our waiting until our daughter is out of school and independent. In the mean time, I spend a lot of time looking in yachtworld.com trying to get a feel for the boat market even though buying a boat is a few years off for us. I found an owner's version 1999 Robertson & Caine Leopard 38 with an asking price of $129,000. In the pictures, she looks as though she is well maintained and a good size for a couple. She also comes with a lot of extras for living off the grid. Additionally, she has a hard top bimini, which has now become standard with most newer catamarans. You can take a look at her here: http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/1999/Robertson-%26-Caine-Leopard-3800%2C-Leopard-38%2C-3800-2950390/Nanny-Cay/British-Virgin-Islands#.VwIAV_kdBik

    Otherwise, it is important to note that the prices of new boats have come down quite a bit. You can now get a lot of boat for your money for around $300,000. I was at the 2016 boat show in Dusseldorf, Germany and they had a few catamarans from Fountaine Pajot, Lagoon and Nautitech. The boat that impressed me most was the brand new Fountaine Pajot Lucia 40. I was amazed how well she was laid out and how much space she had for a 40 foot boat. You have to remember that smaller boats mean smaller marina fees and lower maintenance costs. Here is a new Owner's version Fountaine Pajot Lucia 40 selling for $285,267: http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/2016/Fountaine-Pajot-Lucia-40-2861629/Spain#.VwUsXPkdBik. This is a brand new design replacing the also excellent Fountaine Pajot Lipari.

    Anyhow, I watch a lot of sailing videos on YouTube and came across your channel now that you are looking for new adventures on the water. Your videos are really well done, and since becoming familiar with the Sony a6000 through your channel, I am thinking of buying the later model (Sony a6300) with 4K. I currently use the Sony AXP-33, which I bought due to the fantastic optical steady shot on board.

    Fair Winds,
    Bill

    If you are still in the Keys headed to Palm Beach you might want to stop in Homestead at "Robert Is Here". Yes, that's the name of the fruit stand that sells any type of tropical fruit you can think of. The very best thing there is the Key Lime milkshake or any other combination of milkshake with tropical fruits you can imagine. I could go for that Key Lime shake right now. My son used to work for Everglades NP (NPS) and he lived about 2 minutes from Robert Is Here. Here's a link https://robertishere.com/ You have to read how he got started and check it out.

    I just found your You Tube Videos a couple of weeks ago and have been working my way threw them. My wife and I are sort of full time RVers except we have gotten paid to travel around the country for the last 32 years, we drive truck for a living. We have done some of the coolest things, our favorite best time was when were one of three trucks that brought the stage that U 2 played on at half time at the SuperBowl in New Orleans in 2002. We also was able to be part of the crew that bought the stage out, so we were stage side during the bands performance. We been in all 48 lower states, a lot of Canada, as far north as Dawson Creek, B.C. The game changer for us came in 2008 when we bought a new Kenworth with a 132" ARI custom sleeper. We now have a small 'RV' with a bathroom with a shower, generator, convention microwave and other conveniences that makes live out on the road more comfortable. We do have a house, my wife always says she needed a place 'to go to'. By being owner-operators we have been able to take lots of time off for extended vacations. We have taken motorcycle trips lasting 4-6 weeks. I also got into ATV's BIG TIME. I read about an ATV adventure in BOLIVIA! and went down there in 2001. I liked it so much I went back 5 times, the last time I even took my wife. I am still good friends with the man that puts on this event. I even took on a role in publishing as a contributing editor for ATV Rider magazine. I hope that one day we are able to stop trucking and 'retire' and be able to take the time to travel at a slower pace and visit some of our favorite places.

    Hi - we are within two months getting our RV/MC and within 7 months of going full time. As we plan for this change I am trying to be sure to gather as much information as possible about specific extra equipment.. After watching the recent video on camera equipment, I didn't see a specific mention of the camera you are more likely to use for a 'dash cam'. Is it better to have a dedicated unit, or use a camera for multiple purposes? The Magellan Dash Cam MiVue638 seems to have more features that we would get from a camera, but. . . .??

Last November in hopes of making our dream a reality and getting an extra push from you guys, we purchased a 2012 Fleetwood Bounder for the now 3 of us (We have a 5 month old). We went camping a few times around our home state of Massachusetts, and we have planned a road trip to Florida (Tampa) in two weeks.

I was just watching video last night on a class b Motorhomes (http://leisurevans.com) and was salavating on how cool they are and ran across your site as I was wondering if a Smart Car could be used as a tow car. BTW, I have a black 2009 Brabus Smart Car as well. I thought about swapping it for a cabriolet version but think I'll stick with the hard top as they is already sunk costs. When I decide to do a full 1 year trip...I might go the RV route vs using my eCamper. I haven't looked at everything in your site yet but it looks really well done with a lot of great info. Good luck out there...I'll be staying tuned to your adventures. Cheers.

Strickly dry camping, although I think there's water available somewhere, and maybe a dump station. The Big tent and the flea market are both fun, lots to do and see.

    I found your videos (outside and inside cold weather tips) while searching for cold weather camping helps, great information! We've been full time RV'ers for 2 years now, and loving it! We're originally from the Austin, TX area. My husband, Mark, is still working full-time. He's a computer engineer and hooks up remotely. We use a Mifi with boosters to get the job done. We've been from TX to Glacier and Washington state back to TX. Currently we're in Georgia, but soon making our way to Colorado for the winter. We sold our 2300 square foot home, and all of the "stuff" in it and hit the road 2 years ago. Not that it was easy, and we've made a few mistakes along the way, but we jumped right into a 2005 Damon Ultrasport and haven't looked back. We love it! We have been in some cold weather that lasted a couple of weeks in the panhandle, and our fresh water tank froze and burned up our water pump...but we've never tried extended camping in colder weather before. We are excited and ready to give it a try. Thanks for the great info. We'll pick up a few mini heaters and skirting solution before we head out of the South. Happy RVing! Renee

    By the way I am going to suggest a few things about the solar.

    1. It would be good for you to step up your batteries to 12 volt marine deep discharge batteries.
    2. Go to "Goalzero.com" they have a lot of solar gear.
    3. last but not least, there are a lot of higher amperage solar panels.

    I'm starting to investigate doing something like this--but solo, and with a quite old kitty. I am worried how he'll do, being used to going outside, but also not really enjoying road trips of more than 2 hours or so now (his bladder doesn't hold like it used to).

    Do you confine them while you're driving?

      We do not confine our kitties because we are in a Class A and they do really well driving down the road. Honestly there is no way to know how your cat will do without a trial run. Maybe consider renting a rig for a long weekend.

    We too saw you on GAC the other night and yesterday I was just randomly watching RV videos and saw one of your smackdown videos. I was like hey they look familiar and to see you have a slew of awesome informative videos and a blog.
    Unfortunately for right now, we are just weekend warriors and the occasional vacations in our fifth wheel. But we are currently shopping, researching and anxiously planning on full timing in about 4-5 years. Just wish it can happen sooner.

    Thank you!!

    30 years ago my twin brother and I designed and build ourselves a boat. 36 foot centerboard Chinese Junk rigged cat schooner. Took it from Maryland to Florida twice, then did the Bahamas, Turks and Caicos, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands After meeting the right woman there (still true today) we cruised to Venezuela, Grenada and back up the Windward Islands. I was about your age and they were the best years of my life. The thing I loved best about it, something suspect you can relate to, After traveling all day, seeing sites you’ve never seen before, meeting new and interesting people, you go down below and you are still Home.

    Suzie and I left soon after and returned to Maryland. I am a boatbuilder and I needed to build boats. My soul demanded it of me. But now the wanderlust is creeping up on me again and Its time to go land yachting. So now I am starting to build a RV for us. The design is complete, and its not a lot different from building a yacht other then having to learn how to cut straight lines.

    Perhaps I will see you on the road someday before you transition to a floating hole in the water you pour money into.

    Hi Wynns,
    I just stumbled onto your site via YouTube and have enjoyed your videos a lot. I have been thinking seriously about selling my place and hitting the road for at least a few years. I just noticed that you're selling the class A and downsizing. I was wondering why since your A seems perfect and you made several changes to it to suit your taste. I ask because I am considering a class A for me and my two cats. (Cats are great RV travels as you know.) Any guidance or considerations would be appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Tim

      I think you may have seen an older post or video. We are not downsizing but one day we will eventually transition to a sail boat. Under the blog menu item at the top of the page there is an RV section and on that page is a category called RV Shopper Series that you might find helpful. We love the lifestyle and so do the cats!

    Love your style!

    I'm not sure how I stumbled across your site but I'm glad I did. Two words come to mind; inspiration & possibility.

    Over the past few years I've been exploring ways to do exactly what you're doing and in an inquiry of what the best way to do is. I love being outdoors and being on adventures. I have an FJ cruiser and a travel trailer that I pull to get out into those hard to reach places, however, setting up and breaking down every few days get's old really quick. I purchased an early 80's VW Westfalia/Vanagon and explored all of Baja California in it early last year, but my my girlfriend wasn't digging that too as it doesn't have an indoor bathroom and the space is very, very limited.

    I have been in the market and shopping for smaller RV's or trailers that make more sense (mostly Class B's on Sprinter Chassis & larger lightweight trailers that can be pulled with an FJ), however when you stack the costs against the trade off's none of the options seem reasonable. You guys are doing and you're doing it in what I would consider a medium to large size RV, RV's that I was staying away from mostly because it occurs like it would be unwieldily in some areas (Mexicio & South America). You have opened up new possibilities for me. So thank you!

    I love your content, your photography, your videography, all of it! Quite inspirational. I will have to make time to explore your site and gather new ideas. I look forward to seeing more of your posts.

    Great job guys!

    I love your site. You guys are so inspirational.
    My kids and I had a dream about 2 years ago of full-timing, work-camping and un-schooling at least for a year. But my ex succeeded in stopping that dream. He was an very un-involved dad at the time, he's doing a tad better with that now though. Anyway, I thought I would have to put that dream on hold for five or nine or so years and while I still may have to wait I'm cooking up a new idea.
    I just hate that we can't travel and that we're stuck in a small town and my kids are missing out on seeing the US and seeing their cousins and all. So my new thing it to find out if trading my car in as a down payment (if they'll take it) for a small RV is a good or terrible idea. We could use it as a vehicle for around town and to travel across country on school vacations instead of being stuck here. That way their dad would get his way and I would get to travel with my kids before they grow up and go on their own merry way. Oh yeah, and we could take our kitty cat with us. We don't like leaving her behind and she's not into being caged up in a mini van.
    I goggled gas costs for small RV's hoping to find a comparison to regular mini van gas costs and ended up finding your site. I still don't' know how much more in gas money it would cost to drive a small RV around town but I was very happy to find your site. It just renews my dream. I have to find a way around my limitations.
    BTW, this sort of life style isn't exactly new to me. I was raised on a sail boat. And I don't like being told I can't do something especially when it affects my kids. :)

      Hi Lorena, I'm in the same boat with kids and custody and cats! I thought of getting a VW Eurovan - this can fit in a parking space and a used one is about 25K (can run higher though). It doesn't have a bathroom but you could get a small RV toilet when there are no places to use the restroom. Also, you could get a used Rialta, but they are bigger, might not fit into regular parking spaces? 19 -22 feet. Just an idea. Good luck to you in accomplishing your dream, i'm glad to know I'm not the only one in this situation.

    Hi you two young 'ins, we are Karen & David in Orange County, CA and are your parents age. We just bought our first motorhome but we have been RV'ing for years with our sons though. We have been watching you two start out ever since you were featured on HGTV trying to figure out what RV to buy (first one). We have the same question that Thomas has above about towing a vehicle, our Jeep Rubicon specifically but there are so many videos/opinions on U-tube that it gets a little confusing. I'm sure we will figure it out....hitting the road soon but not to full time it. My hubby is retiring on June 30th!!! but I sadly have a few years left, unless I figure out something on the road to do....reading up on all the "mobile" work options too. Can you really make a living while mobile and online? Thanks for sharing your adventures and tips with us all!

We travel now with 3 Cats!! We are now staying gone longer than in previous years- this last time for over 2 months. Planning this Fall to stay gone for 6 months. Any suggestions to make our Cats love the MH even more. Any adaptations you did to your MH esp for your Babies? The climbing /scratching tree takes up too much floor space- looking for alternatives. During day, set it next to Driver's seat, at night would place it on slide in front of passenger's seat, up against door. Where cat litter box is, etc! Enjoy your Travels! Here's to the Open Road!

    Nikki & Jason,

    Wow. I just stumbled into your site today and I have to say you are a huge inspiration. Everything about your Gone With The Wynns project impresses me. Your website looks fantastic. Your videos are so professional, yet friendly and entertaining.

    I must confess, I'm insanely jealous. Here is the project I've been trying to launch: www.Luthorville.com

    My project is an adventure in building an off-grid home in the Mojave desert. But as I've run into technical problems and frustrations, I started to reconsider and ask myself, "Do I want to get an RV instead?"

    That was when I found you.

    At this point, I still don't know what I want to do. I can't afford to build a house AND have an RV. I need to pick one and stick to it. Plus, I earn a living from a 9-5 office job, so I'd have to stay close enough in my RV life to get to work.

    I have no idea which direction to go. All I know is, your website and your videos look so much better than mine, and you really make me want to step things up. Good job, kids. I'm impressed and inspired.

    Respectfully,
    Eric Muss-Barnes

    Hi Wynns,

    I am in Fort Wayne and I was walking home from work last night at the bus station and I saw your car parked at the Oyster Bar on Calhoun st and it caught my eye and looked very interesting and a little while later I saw you two pass by me. So I googled your name today "Gone with the Wynn's" and I have to tell you - I absolutely LOVE what you guys are able to do!! Right now, I take care of my mom and my husband and I are not in the position to travel like that but hopefully one day we will. But in the meantime I love to explore things right here in my city that we haven't been to before and go to other surrounding cities and explore. I'm debating on taking my husband to the Oyster Bar for our anniversary or to the new Longhorn Restaurant but I think the Oyster Bar is more quaint. Anyways keep it up and I will be praying for your continued safe travels.

    Hello Wynns,
    I've been dreaming about living the RV lifestyle for years now. I love your website, and enjoy living vicariously through it. I'm finally within 6 or 7 years of retiring from the police department here in San Antonio and I'm starting to make plans (it'll be here before you know it). I've always thought more along the lines of buying a fifth wheel, but I'm flexible. I'm wondering about the reasons you guys go with motor coaches? Did you guys look into fifth wheels? Is there a major issue or con with fifth wheels that I haven't considered. I know you've never owned one, but no doubt you've seen a lot of them out there. I appreciate any thoughts and hope to run into you guys one day.

      Hey Devon. Nothing at all wrong with a 5th wheel or any other style of RV. It's all about your travel style and preferences. You have to figure out where you want to go, how you want to camp and what will best suit those needs. We move around a lot so we like being able to use the bathroom while driving down the road, make lunch, grab a cold beverage from the fridge and so on. We also prefer having a small tow car to zip around town and go exploring the area. We are not really big truck people.

    Just stumbled on your site. Since my wife died a year ago, I've been trying to figure out a way forward, and have been thinking about getting a RV for a couple of months now. Since my plan is to retire in Anchorage, where I have relatives from my wife's side of the family, my first plan was to get it and have it paid off by the time I retire at 70 in nine years, and use it for a year of travel to get to Anchorage. Now, with few relatives, I've started toying with alternative ideas in the last couple of weeks/months. Work doesn't seem to hold the urgency it did before, with no one but myself to support. I've always loved travel. So your site is giving me lots of inspiration. I'm beginning to plan to escape with my little dog and hit the road. I've been a semi-pro photographer forever (well, since Junior High), and would love to travel and publish photo journals. Keep up the good work kids. You've won another convert.

    True Story:

    A few weeks before Christmas 2014, I was watching HGTV and saw the episode that featured your motor home search. So I googled you. Then I stalked you for a few weeks. Then I said to my hubby, "let's sell everything buy an RV and travel around the US and Canada for a few years." He said, "OK. Make it happen" (I love him!) Then I asked my daughter what a blog was....and she rolled her eyes and called me "lame" and helped me set up my blog.

    I have spent the last 2 months educating myself about RVs, Composting Toilets, Solar Panels, Wild Camping, Free Camping, Work Camping, Blogging, Instagramming, Youtubing, Google+ing, Tweeting, and Pinning. I joined RVilliage, Escapees, NU RVers, and started following numerous RV Full Timers on their various Social Media accounts and subscribing to their blogs and newsletters.

    Our goal is to be full time by October, because my husband (who grew up in Southern California) really wants to see the fall colors on the East Coast. By then our last little sparrow will have flown the coop and it will just be my hubby, me, and Rosie the Wonderdog on the open road!

    The moral of the story is: Thanks for sharing, you planted a life changing seed in our lives!

    I don't know how the story will end, but I know a GREAT adventure is in store for us:))

And your video on hooking it up with the braking system was excellent (better than your faucet replacement went). What transmission does your Smart car have that makes it suitable for four-on-the-ground towing?

    Greetings Jason and Nikki,
    I know how the travel bug can strike. In a similar fashion a series of occurrences in my late teens compelled me to begin a sea odyssey in the Navy and later as a security chief aboard cruise ships that took me around the world eleven times and finally deposited me home at the ripe old age of 37.
    Even now, having worked a sedentary job for the government the last six years, I find the tide once again rising for a new adventure inland. So, one night while reading an article on house architecture. I stumbled upon the Tumbleweed small homes and was simply blown away. I immediately signed up for a workshop and was on my way to building my own customized living space.
    You know you can save a lot of travel financing if you simply build your own, customized miniature home. It will be exactly what you want and there won't be any need to keep upgrading RV's. You simply buy a new truck when the engine gets old. Much cheaper. Just a thought.

    Love the Videos and your good cheer,

    Sincerely, Alan

      I do love love love the tiny homes...however, unless you buy the one RVIA approved tiny home from tumbleweed, you may have a hard time getting into RV parks and campgrounds. For our current fast paced spontaneous travel style, an RV works best but I could definitely see us with a custom built tiny home in the future!

    Great introduction to your RV lifestyle, keep it up!
    Got the crazy idea to turn an older RV into a Real Estate office. Been thinking about it for a while and finally doing it. Need help on finding stuff since I gutted it all out! Ikea is a great place finding stuff. However since I smashed all the old cabinets I have to rework it. In Germany RV’s are more advanced then hear, that saddens me. Looking to invest in solar and much more! Thank God I have a handy husband who is helping me. Found a great sink @ IKEA and looking to installing it this weekend. But since I got rid of all cabinets we have to rebuild first! You all have a great day.

    We met you on the last day of the RV show, Sunday. We spoke to Jason. We had no idea who you were and you explained it to us and we were anxious to come home and watch your videos. Fabulous. We LOVE it. Cannot wait to watch all of them.

    Nikki, sorry to say we did not talk to you but saw you talking to someone else and you are a beautiful young girl. We were planning on speaking to you on the way out but you guys were gone on our way out that day.

    Travel safe and we are looking forward to your videos now that we know all about them.

    You are a beautiful couple. Thank you for sharing your lives with us. I am retired and would love to see our country by RV. The problem I have is my wife will not be away from our Grandchildren very long, so I am seeing our beautiful country through your eyes. I spend hours watching your videos, some more than once. Safe travels.

    Hi Jason and Nikki, you guys have got the right idea! My wife and I are about to make the move back to the mainland from Hawaii and will be full timing. She keeps telling me nobody our age does this (she's 27, I'm 32) so I'm so glad to be able to prove her wrong now! Do you guys know of a network of folks that are a little on the younger side that full time? Although I get along great with anyone, she normally feels left out if I happen to befriend an older, retired couple.

    Hey Nikki and Jason!

    First time commenting, long time readers.

    I wanted to thank both of you on behalf of me (David) and my fiance (Francesca) for being the instrument who helped open a new world for us.

    We had tracked you for the last year, watching your videos, adventures and it really resonated with us and our lifestyles.

    We are both self employed (me-video games, tech) and Francesca (works with me as well as her own fashion and blogging) and we don't really ever get extended periods of "breaks" or vacations, but rather small blips of free time through out every day.

    On top of this we have our furball kitten that we adore and so international travel is difficult. This mixed with being sick of looking at the same 4 walls everyday proved to be mentally encumbering. The bus idea allowed for travel, great momentary escapes from work, much better views out the window and a greater quality of life.

    Again, this all comes back to you. What you're doing is helping improve the lives of others and showing people new possibilities. That is amazing, courageous and we hope you never stop.

    You can learn more about us and our mention of you in our intro piece here:
    trek-industries.com/post/90849029640/welcome-to-the-world-of-trek

    We are from Chicago and are doing our first departure next month. Maybe we will see you on the road, otherwise thanks for what you do and happy travels!

    Traveling with cats - you haven't talked about the "potty box".
    We have 4 cats and the dreaded potty box is a topic of concern. also, we have "escape artist" cats, and my greatest fear is that they will take off and laugh at us while we try to round them up - only based on experience. any suggestions?

      We have an entire post about traveling cats if you haven't come across it yet: https://www.gonewiththewynns.com/traveling-cats We will be updating it soon with more information, but our cats love being outside and they consider the RV their home, so they always return searching for food and love. As for the litter box we keep it up front behind the passenger seat, it's out of the way and mostly hidden when we're parked.

    If you are still considering sailing, be sure to check out some catamarans. They sail flat instead of at 30 degrees, sail faster, and have more cabin space than the same length mono-hull. (Of course they tend to cost more as well.) Cats are typically much shallower in draft than a similar sized mono-hull making them easier to get closer to the beach especially in places like the Caribbean.

    A good minimum sized, and lower cost cat would be a Gemini. Much over 40 feed in a cat is probably too big for comfortable handling by a couple.

    There are thousands of islands to explore in the Caribbean. There is also something call the great loop - up the inland waterway along the east coast, by river and canal to the Great Lakes, then down the Mississippi to the Gulf Coast and back around to Florida. Inland passage to Alaska from Seattle is another great boat trip. Then of course there is Europe with canals traversing from the N. Sea to the Med.

    If you are thinking of doing the Great Loop or the canals in Europe, check on size restrictions so you don't get a boat with more than 6' of draft or one that is too wide. For both these trips a boat with a tabernacle mounted mast might make getting under bridges a lot easier.

    I see you and Nikki live the dream it seems very well. Good on you. I am looking at a situation where i may have to take my family on the road for an open-ended adventure.

    Very briefly,we moved to Alberta Canada back in 2007 from the UK and embrased the canadian way of life. Recession hit and we lost a ton from our property investment over 4 years. I couldn't take the lack of work and expense any more .One income , wife kids , pets ,etc etc. We had to sell before the bank took the property.Never in a million years did i think we would crash and burn . One of lifes curveballs i guess.Back to the UK for a couple of years to rebuild. After two years we all just had to get back to the great outdoors. Un able to buy another home we now rent @ $2500 a month plus bills. The wife has been laid off , Im self employed and struggling to find work which covers the bills for the family. The rental contract is up in three months time.

    I have totally had enough of this crazy rat race living in a over priced home .

    Limited funds will get us a School bus to begin with.
    We have two kids 15 and 13 which will be a challenge re school etc.

    We will be heading to BC Canada on a budget with the intension of avoiding the Alberta winter to begin with.

    This a major life change ahead for all of us. I am a little nervous to say the least . Any advice would be very much appreciated.

    regards
    Steve

    I'm just starting to get bit by the RV bug @ 61 years old! My bride and I have a fantasy of actually seeing this country
    from an RV, meeting new people and spending the time together. We're both retired, well past the "empty nest syndrome" and time goes forward, not backwards. I decided
    the best thing to do at this point is rent an RV for the weekend. We live 30 minutes away from OLEMA State Park
    which I understand is RV friendly. My game plan is to rent the RV, and spending the weekend using it, living out of it,
    enjoying the views of OLEMA and getting a "taste" of RV'ing to
    make sure this is what we really want and can handle it.
    We have to tell you, though, we do enjoy your video's
    very much. You two are a cute, dynamic and great couple
    and we wish you all the best -- and the cat's, too! Thanks for

    Stumbled across you all after filling out the owner satisfaction questionnaire from Winnebago, which led to checking out the WIT club, then a U-tube of you all shopping for motorhomes. We bought a new Winnebago View Profile motorhome which is now in the shop for the 2nd time dealing with DEF problems, then they damaged it test driving it so now it's in a body shop. Seems like it would be a nice rig if Mercedes can get the DEF system straightened out.

    Anyway, noticed you all are in Knoxville. We were just near there in Oakridge, (via air, not motorhome) where my wife's mother lives. Couple of suggestions, check out radio station WDVX, 89.9, and go to one of their blue plate special concerts at noon every day, downtown Knoxville. That station started out in a travel trailer in a campsite. Also, the American Museum of Science and Industry is worth a visit in Oak Ridge. That town was secretly built during WW2 to enrich uranium for the atomic bombs that ended the war with the Japanese, possibly saving my father's life, he was on a ship headed to Japan for a land assault. Lots of other informative things there on the development of atomic energy etc.

    Really find your website informative. Keep up the good work.

    Jason & Nikki-
    “Hi”-
    I happen to stumble across your You Tube videos and found your web page. I am for all intense and purposes, the every man, the regular guy, the stereo typical, (well at least for those of us in our 40’s). I am married with two children. We have two dogs, and unfortunately two homes. We live in southern Arizona, but we also own a house in Tennessee (that for one reason or another won’t sell), but that is another story.

    My High School sweet heart and I, (yes I married my High School sweet heart), have come to the same realization over and over again. The same cycle of our professional lives seems to be repeating itself. To summarize our realization, it would go something like this: start a new job, boss thinks your wonderful, a few years go by, cost of living is up but salary is not, a self realization washes over you that you are just treading water in work and in life and your boss just sees you as a number and not a person. The logical next step is either you find a new job or you show up to work one day to find out you are fired, (yep, I was fired). The cycle starts again. Fast forwarding this realization, all one has to do is simply just look at their own parents for the end of the story. It is easy to see where this all ends. Well, I don’t want to be that guy anymore. I want to make a life changing event before I am 60 something, with a bad hip and a bum knee, but how?

    I have read how you both packed it in and sold everything to put yourselves on the road. I admire that and know that it took a lot of courage to break the cycle of normality and buck the system. What troubles me, is the details and the unknowns, and that is what prohibits me from making such a drastic life altering change. Such a change would not just alter my life, but my wife and children’s. I do know that there are several ways to view things and that each day can be an adventure (good or bad), but giving up the known for the unknown is a conundrum.

    Could you do what you are doing if you had children?

    Could you survive on less than $15,000 a year?

    The above questions are in my top 5 biggest questions that I cannot answer. I just don’t have a data source to analyze or an example to follow. I did read (skimmed) through your financials that you posted, and you two are living well. I was expecting to see a smaller tighter budget in the neighborhood of $20K to $30K a year. So, after reading your financials I am even more concerned that having a smaller budget with no future revenue source could sink this whole idea.

    Any thoughts?

    As a side note, I see in your videos a glimmer of what I once was. What I mean by that is, you have true happiness that comes from being free. You both haven’t been beaten by years (decades) of hard work and treading water. You both exude excitement for life with eyes wide open and I miss that in my own life. Please continue to live free and full and thank you both for sharing your lives. You both are a true joy and light to us regular types.

    Sincerely-

      Mike, first you should check out fulltime families as its a great group and should quickly have you convinced that fulltime travel with kids is absolutely possible and very rewarding. As for budgeting goes, everyone travels on different budgets. We know plenty of families that travel on far less and far more than we do. We saved up money and continue to make a decent living on the road. If our income decreased so would our living expenses. Its no different than living a 'normal life'...the difference is if your current locations economy isn't doing so well, you have the luxury of moving on somewhere more promising. You should read some of these for working on the road inspiration: https://www.gonewiththewynns.com/category/make-money-travel

      As for us, yes we are happy and we love living on the road. Seriously we could never go back to our old lives! However, life in general always has its ups and downs. That doesn't go away on the road but there is always something a little extra rewarding about living the life you want vs. the one you think you are supposed to be living.

    Hello Jason and Niki
    One more question, am not going to bother you again.
    Is your RV, I mean the new one, you still have to keep the pipe wrapped, and using heat tape, in the winter.
    I notice you always staying in rural are, what you do if you go to town, where you leave your RV, if no campground near by and it is safe? can you buy direct from the factory?
    I saw you at the factory, when they build your RV, also how long it took them to build yours.
    Thank you
    Good day

      Nabil,
      We are happy to help when and where we can! Our number 1 goal for this website is to help other's follow their dreams, so please know you're not bothering us by asking questions.
      Wrapping Pipes - If you use the propane furnace to keep warm in freezing temperatures it will keep the pipes from freezing because the ducting runs right along the pipes. I would recommend insulating every pipe you can find if you plan to stay in temperatures at or below 20 degrees Fahrenheit. I am not sure about heat tape inside the RV as I've read that it can pose a fire risk, I'd rather my pipes freeze every now and then over worrying about a fire. Read our Winter RV post for more information.
      If we are spending a day or evening in town we often park our RV at a Wal-Mart or Home Depot for the day. Make sure you ask the manager before leaving your RV in their parking lot unattended. Read our post and watch our video on How to Camp at Wal-Mart.
      To custom order an RV it really depends on your option requests and which manufacturer and RV model you select. I've heard of people getting a customized RV in as little as a few weeks, and other people that it took 6 months. We did not custom order our RV's, we selected a model with the options we wanted and had the factory do our requested upgrades. Please note that not all manufacturers will customize on request, so ask the manufacturer (not the salesman) before you purchase.
      Hope this helps.

    Hello
    Niki and Jason
    5 years ago I thought about selling everything's after my divorce, and hit the road, but now am not thinking about it at all, am going to do it, I sold my house, now am in the process of selling my business.
    So I went on line to look for a nice RV, that when I found you guys, it's amazing to read about you guys and all the palaces you went to and how you enjoy your life.
    Thank you for all the info, that you share with the whole world, you don't know how helpful is it when you talk about everything's you experience in your life.
    any advice on purchasing a new RV? high 300,000 it is so many and very confusing.
    I was looking at Newmar, king airs, provost, Entegra.
    So if you guys have any idea, please let me know.
    I will be watching your video and also all your comment.
    Another question, when you guys started and where are you now, and how I follow you?
    Please let me know.

    Thank you

      Hello Nabil,
      Thank you for taking the time to say hello and congratulations on taking the plunge into the RV lifestyle. We do our best to read every post and respond when we have a quality internet connection. Here's our take on your questions:

      How to Subscribe: Sign up for our emails, you'll get a max of one per week, or you can choose one per month: Subscribe to Email

      Which RV: This is extremely personal and depends on the type of RVing you'd like to do. Read over our RVing page there are some very helpful posts on selecting the best RV, and some of our opinions on the RV's we've considered over the years. Don't forget to check out the new Monaco Coach and American Coach, both seem pretty top notch at the recent RV show in Louisville we attended, and I believe both will fall within your budget. I have heard great things about Newmar, but I don't know much about Entegra. Prevost is a converted Bus chassis so the cost will be much higher if you want a new one, if you're looking for used don't forget to also check out Foretravel from Texas.

      Hope this helps get you a jump start!

        I found about you just last week, as I told you, I was looking for RV. that how I found you. I did enjoy all your story and all the video, you guys did very good job, and the way how you explain everything's, just fantastic, great job, well done.
        Thank you for the info. I did look at Monaco, 2015 is great RV, and also American.
        If you come to Vermont, you should come to Northkindom, it is beautiful, and the people are wonderful and also the surrounding area, you don't have to worry about where you going to park your RV, you can use my business property to park your RV and you have breakfast and lunch on me also as long as you want, no problem at all.
        Thank you for sharing your adventure and your life with us, and I want to tell you that you inspired a lot of people.
        You and your wife such nice people.
        I wish you both the best of luck.

      No matter what we'll keep traveling it's just a matter of by RV or by Sailboat! Who knows where this adventure we call life will take us!

    Hello Jason/Nikki,

    I just wanted to thank you for the inspiration. I have been thinking of getting out of the traditional ideal "American Dream" of owning a home, good job.. etc for quite some time.

    I have thought about homesteading, or just getting a houseboat and coast along somewhere for sometime, but have been distracted so many times.

    Over this December 2013 period, I have been visiting your youtube, vimeo and website blog.

    I am 42, wife just turned 40. Both are working. We purchased a Rialta 22 foot Class B about 6 years ago, but only have done short campsites trips. We have let that Rialta down and have let it go to the point that some of the panels in side needs work now. Since it was not being maintain, it was not as important to get out again thus that cycle of neglecting the Rialta kept going.

    This year, we purchased a LivinLite VRV toyhauler since it was all aluminum, even the cabinets inside. Having no wood to rot, or steel to rust, had sold this to me since I was not sure, how active we would be using this.

    After seeing your videos, website, the wife and I had some discussion and she is more motivated and eager to go on the road.

    We are now looking and brainstorming a plan to sell both houses, maybe purchase a small land in Colorado to call it homebase with a off grid cabin and shed to share with our friends when they need to get away from the city life.

    I do have some concerns in that, if something would ever happen to either of you, have you got a plan individually? Will your survivor go back to traditional living or remain as is?

    I have been reading about the emotional effect during the transitions to full-time RV, but that is all great emotions to share with a love one during the transition. I am concern if I should ever pass on before my wife, I would be concern how she would be left on the road alone? I think I would be thinking of this all the time, unless I pin down a plan with her first.

    Thanks again for sharing your experience and best wishes to both of you and the felines..:)

    Regards,

    Kou Srimoungchanh

      So glad we could help start your adventure...it's comments like yours that inspire us to keep blogging. As for your questions about a spouse surviving we just published a new article from a woman who is 66 and has kept going after her husband was lost to cancer: https://www.gonewiththewynns.com/make-money-travel-judy-kerns
      For Nikki and I we both have good life insurance policies that will cover expenses for 2 or more years should one of us die before the other. We have always discussed if something should happen the other person would continue to live on the road as long as they loved it, and when the time comes we'd find a town to settle down in.
      We have met several people both male and female who live on the road by themselves. It's amazing how the RV community thrives, especially if you join a group program such as Thousand Trails, or if you have a home park where you spend a good chunk of time at each year (i.e. snowbird in the Desert Southwest and summer in the Pacific Northwest at the same park each year).
      One thing you can count on when you start RVing is you'll never feel alone, there's plenty of us out there waiting your arrival with open arms! Hope this helps soothe your concerns.

The campground in South Hampton N.H. is our yearly spot to vacation and I do remember now seeing your little car with the neat paint scheme.

    Dear Nikki & Jason
    I am sure you get many connections and e mails as part of your life experience being on the road but I felt compelled to write and congratulate you both on your tenacity and entrepreneurship.
    I am from the UK and have lived in America since 2005 with my wife. I came to Palm Springs for retirement and ended up using former skills to help develop theatre arts in Indio and after five years, now helping to promote, advocate and develop the creative arts throughout the Coachella Valley. Each summer, I choose either Europe and my home in London or road trips across the country. I have always loved travelling and feel empathy with you both. I have an unquenched passion for motorhomes and research everything and anything about them. My favorite source for accurate information is RV Geeks. Those chaps really know their stuff and convey everything with surety and common sense. You, on the other hand, convey a care free spirit that is so engaging and uplifting. Your presentation skills and camera work are very professional; it truly looks like a network program rather than the usual tedium of personal You tube stuff.

    From what I have seen, you are both planning on changing your transport for a boat and heading for Europe. You will see a rich tapestry there and if the water is the mode, I suggest a Belgium barge boat. These are big enough for your needs and the waterways are so extensive you will see the interior of most countries.
    Before you go however, I would like to join your fan mail and communicate/ exchange ideas about the RV lifestyle.

    There is so much missing out there in terms of research and guidance. If there was an “Angies list” for RV services, that would take the worry out for so many. One particular thing struck me recently. Many couples have ventured into motorhomes as part of retirement. One gives up or dies and the other has no one to share this lifestyle with. A friendship site would be a great addition. I suggest these ideas because I think you are the two that have the skills and experience to get something like this off the ground. At least think about it for future income.

    I will close for now and hope you will respond. I would like to meet you when you get to the valley and I would also like to connect you with the arts scene as well as introduce you to media people who could write about you or interview you (again)
    Assuring you of my best intentions
    David & Esther

      David,
      First off thank you for taking the time to send this email, and for offering to get us publicity! That is huge! I hate to be the bearer of bad news but as our 2014 plans are coming together I'm not sure we're going to make it to the Western half of North America.
      We agree with so much of what you've said here (Angie's list for RVs, Waiting for retirement, etc) and we have tried to collaborate with GoRVing over the past few years but it just seems the industry is not ready for youth. Please know we're doing our best to infiltrate the 'status quo' but it's a long and windy road.
      We are excited to hit the water, however until we've reached out goals here on land we're going to stick with this whole RVing thing...and who knows maybe 2014 will be the RV year in Youth! Keep up the positive words, it fuels our fire. Hope to connect in person one day; till then we'll see you digitally.

    We purchased a new 45' truck conversion Motorhome with a matching Smart Car that fits in the toy hauler garage.....see you on the road....Virginia and I will be on the move spreading goodwill and helping out along the way however we can.....that will be our Mission...Regards, Gene and Virginia....just signed up for the email newsletter so we can get updates from you guys.

    I started following y'all exactly 5 days ago to this date of the comment. You two are doing what I have been wanting, (but procrastinating), to do for YEARS! All started with my Dad taking the Family to Port Lavaca, TX in the 80's in his Shasta Motor Home. I loved the fact that we were traveling, fishing, camping and together....everything except the Iodine tubes that were put on our cuts from sharp seashells! Instead of taking the old Ford Extended cab with a Camper shell in the back, the Shasta gave room and loads of fun for that time....still remember that hideous green and brown shag carpet all over!
    I really want to go the same route as you two have chosen. Instead of traveling the World as I do now, I want to visit the places in NORTH AMERICA and less like Dubai, New Zealand and Spain (My Fav's).
    Still, I haven't found the answers to some of the questions I have. I do follow Gone With The Wynn's, RV Geeks and Technomadia, the main ones and other's also....tons of helpful stuff especially your Solar and Wattage gear by Go Power! Helped me out like you wouldn't believe.....and I am still wondering what the difference is on going to an RV Expo/Show or walking into a Dealership?
    I see the Pros and Cons of owning an RV or a Travel Trailer, still undecided on which one....I do own a 2010 Ford F150 with Trailer Tow package....so I want to lean towards Travel Trailer. So now for the questions.....

    1.) I will start only Traveling in Texas, is BLM a good place to look or is there something better? ( I have the apps: Oh Ranger!, Wifi Finder, Stateline)

    2.) I noticed you've attended Burning Man and such...y'all ever tried Art Outside in Apache Pass (Rockdale, TX)?

    3.) Do you know of anyone that actually has a small garden growing in their RV/Travel Trailer? On #3, I was thinking of doing that with a Toy Hauler type Trailer I have always loved growing my own food.

    Thank you and Kudos on your Adventure, I hope mine will be as enduring and fun filled as y'alls until the boat is purchased and then some!

      First off: Glad you've joined us! Sounds like you've lived an interesting life and are ready for a new adventure. Here's my take on your questions, hope this will help:

      1) There's plenty of BLM in TX, OK and NM. Go to the BLM website and call the local offices in the area you want to visit. There are a ton of cheap/free camping sites in TX, you'll just have to start searching.

      2) We are hoping to hit Alpine, Marfa, Big Bend NP and several other spots in 2014. I don't know if we'll be in TX late October or not, but this event looks super cool.

      3) We carry a small organic herb garden on our rig, and we've seen people growing tomatoes but that's really the extent of it. Travel is tough on plants, but if you plan to stay in TX maybe you'll be ok? The longer distances you travel, and the varying climates really do a number on our herbs.

      I definitely think a trailer would be a great start for you, especially because you have a truck already. If you can find a used one a few years old you can learn how to RV, then upgrade without losing too much money if you want to later on.

      Have fun, the searching is exciting and a pain in the butt at the same time.

    Hello,

    I just found your website researching . I'm a single professional female empty nester 40+ who used to had tons of adventure in my 20's backpacking, etc but never RV'ing. I'm ready to hit the road and do it again and found a job that's pretty portable. Only problem is I have a hard time backing anything up and I don't parallel park well.
    Any suggestions where to start?

    • Jason Wynn

      November 25, 2013 Reply

      Daisy,
      Many RV's come with backup cameras and side mirror cameras making it extremely easy to backup. As far as parallel parking...I think we've done it 2 times in 3 years, so I wouldn't worry to much about it.

      Another thing you should know: There are camping sites called "pull through" where you don't need to backup you simply drive forward into them. Also the campground community is typically very kind and 100% happy to help, when you arrive at the campground to check in tell them you need assistance backing into your site, they will be happy to send someone to help you out...the last thing they want is for you to begin your experience at their campground with a "bang".

      Hope this helps!

    I live in Reno,NV and was googling camping spots nearby and came across your Turtle Rock Campground video. I loved that you showed disc golf in your video. Anyways, your video was so fun to watch so eventually I looked at all of your other videos and your website. I shared your amazing videos with my husband and friends and started following you on facebook. Following you over the last couple of months has really encouraged us to think about becoming full-timers in the next couple of years. We already started looking at RV's. ;)

    Hello Jason and Nikki...We enjoy hearing about other "young" Rver's...as we have been travelling now for almost 10 years! All starting out on a four month road trip travelling around North America with our two small children! At that time they were 4 years and five months old! We bought our 22' Slumber Queen Adventurer for that trip. Since then we have put on "many more kilometers on that same Rv, at different times mind you! But that was the beginning to may adventures that have happened since with our family! Even travelling abroad to other countries...in Mexico and Europe...travel has been an open/live encyclopedia for the kids!! Their marks prove it too:) This summer I had the pleasure of watching my (almost 14 year old son's) face drop in amazement as he got his first glance of the Roman Colosseum!!! Sooo many stories to tell...once again thank you...for keeping us entertained too:)

In fact we,(my daughter-in-law and grand daughters were in your brief video there. I think you're both great and enjoy reading your blogs! My husband and I both love to travel and hope to run into you both again soon! Happy traveling!

    You guys have literally been our inspiration to make this dream a reality. I do marketing and design, my wife is a makeup artist, and we LOVE traveling and technology! We can't wait to be "technomads" and travel the country documenting the fun we have learning more about this amazing earth. Some of your videos have been so informative, like the solar power video (my favorite!) and the day in the life video (my wife's favorite :D)

    I'm not ready to full-time it but I'm definitely in the market for a Class C to enjoy a nicer standard of camping & extended road trips! (Tent camping isn't as much fun anymore... hee.) I love reading your blog though, and really enjoy that you cover everything from the basics to "advanced" RVing! Thanks for sharing your adventures! Your videos are fantastic.

    Hi Wynns! Became a fan when I first watched you on HGTV and then became a blog follower when I learned that you were traveling w/ two furry purry companions (the kitties). Have learned so many things and discovered places to investigate thanks to your entertaining & informative reports. Cannot wait for your sailing adventure next! Thanks, PW

    You're videos and experiences have made so much info out there easier to understand and introduced me to things I didn't even think about, composting toilet (pushing my husband to invest once we get our RV), solar panels, etc. I can't wait to sell our place so my husband and I can start our traveling journey. Thank you.

    Been following you two since you were new-be RV buyers and deciding on Windy. Your production technique and presentation keep people coming back. I especially like the different solar options that have been reviewed....

    You quoted earlier "We quickly learned that the typical…boy meets girl, couple gets mortgage payment, 60 hour work weeks, 2 ½ kids, two weeks of vacation a year and if you survive, retire at 60… sounds exhausting and it isn’t our version of the American Dream "

    I have felt that way from the start of my working years....My wife and both came from RVing families so RV was in our lifestyle....I also knew I wanted to retire before the age of 55. We do camp 50-60 nights a year....

    Hope to retire in 2-1/2 years ( age 53) and meet my goal and do a 3 month Alaska trip....

    I will never forget the moment I found your blog this summer. I was sitting outside on a wonderful sunny afternoon, enjoying a drink, and contemplating how I want to live my life. After I graduated college my boyfriend and I took an 8,000 mile round trip road trip. In my car. Not to say it wasn't awesome (I would do it again tomorrow if I could!!!). But living out of the car and camping can't be done forever. So when I found your blog, not only was I excited you shared all your experiences, ideas, and videos, and you're about my age! I saw that a young couple was making it work and it inspired me so much to pursue my endeavors and find a way to make my home able to go with me. Thanks so much for sharing!

    Hey Wynns! Really cool sight. My wife, Lauren, and I are 30 somethings (barely) full time working and living on the road as well, also from Dallas! Small world, huh? A friend of mine just introduced me to your sight, it's quite impressive. In fact, it seems from looking at your map, that we are just a week or so ahead of everything you do. Wish we had learned of you all sooner, we could have tried to catch up. Anyway, thanks for taking the time to post so much great information on the web, I only wish we had seen it BEFORE learning all the lessons the hard way. We do our best to talk about our work on the road and teach other people to do it, the logistics, technology, mechanics, and finances, but we've never made a blog. Perhaps you've just inspired us!

    Here's our journey, we don't log all the cool places because the map just looks too full that way, so we did just the places we stopped for the night, but you get the point:
    https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=210403285808229687245.0004c9c950c70ad26d82f&msa=0

    Thanks again for taking the time and inspiring other young couples. We have never met anyone our age (or even close) on the road which is a shame because it is certainly the journey of a lifetime!
