Kicking Off The New Year On The Right Foot

Kicking Off The New Year On The Right Foot

Hello 2018 and Happy New Year friends!

We stayed up late ringing in the new year with gusto and we’re going to assume you did too.  Your tired eyes may not be ready for one of my wordy messages, so I’ll keep it brief.

It’s the first day of the year and we wanted to kick it off on the right foot (pun intended). It’s a new beginning and we decided it should all start with you.

You are such a big part of our world and we can’t thank you enough for choosing to be a part of it.

Sometimes we are lucky enough to know that our lives have been changed, to discard the old, embrace the new, and turn headlong down an immutable course.

May your year be blindingly bright and filled with adventure,

Nikki, Jason, Singa and Cleo

  • Date: 12/31/17 –  1/1/18
  • Anchorage:  La Playita is a very rolly anchorage due to all the boat traffic but the Marina dock is the only safe place we found to leave our Dinghy for a night out on the town.  The marina charges $8 a day but they make you pay for the week…however much longer is left in the week.  If it is Monday, you have to pay through Sunday for a total of 7 days.  If it’s Thursday you pay through Sunday for a total of 4 days.  It’s a weird system but it’s the only option and still cheaper than the marina ($150 for the first night).  The bus runs into town and is incredibly cheap at $0.25 cents a ride.  Taxis are still very affordable and much faster if you are in a hurry.  A cab from the marina to or from Casco Viejo is $6-15 depending on the time of day (they don’t like to work late, can’t say I blame them).

Thank You!

An extra special shout-out to everyone who has shopped through our gear store, those who have left a tip in our jar and big love to our Patreons who have made a tremendous difference in our lives.  The collective support has afforded us the time and dedication to share more videos this year than ever before. It’s viewers like you that make it all possible.  Thank You!
