Things are good. Real good. We’re on a lucky streak. Doors are opening. Wide. Opportunities are presenting themselves left right and center. Life is odd. Life is good. There is one thought that keeps popping up – “Some things happen for a reason.” And all because we were forced to walk away from one boat […]
Well, in the end, the deal on this Lagoon 380 didn’t go thru. We’d completed the survey. Done oil analysis on the Sail Drives (transmissions) & engines. Everything was structurally sound albeit neglected on the outside and we’d compiled a laundry list repairs that were required before we set sail. We were ready to pull the trigger […]
I’ve been playing with video editing a bunch. It’s an art form that takes forever to learn. Something you only get better at the more you practice. I’m a beginner but hope to some day get better. Here’s a great little movie that I stumbled across today. Great editing. Great content.
“You can fail at what you don’t want, so you might as well take a chance at what you Love.” This is from Jim Carrey’s commencement speech. My good friend Bay, who by the way is an excellent coach if you want to achieve big dreams, put this on my radar. It hit home and made me […]
A little motivator I came across recently. What have you always wanted to do but put off?
When we say “We’re going to sell everything and Sail Around the World” we gloss over just a few details. Living on a boat requires you to downsize; No filing cabinet. No closet full of ‘stuff’ you never use. You can’t afford to have ‘extra stuff’. So that’s what we’ve been doing..Gifting, Selling, Digitizing or Turfing. […]
Wow. What an amazing couple of days. How can I even begin to describe how grateful we are for the outpouring of support we have received from friends, family and complete strangers. Thank You. No, Thank You from the bottom of our heart. If you hadn’t noticed, we were hesitant to put this out there. For […]
Have you ever had a thought that scares the shit out of you? Something that you believe is not impossible? Something that questions everything you’ve ever been brought up to believe but intrigues you nonetheless? I had something like that creep into my consciousness a few years back. It was along the lines of “Let’s […]
We’re getting close now. We’ve picked out our dream boat and have a definitive dollar amount in mind to work towards. Here’s our goal, a Lagoon 380: We envision this as the ideal living platform. Unlike a monohull, a catamaran has the main living space above water. We find monohulls extremely dark and claustrophobic. I […]

A while ago I mentioned I had some big news. Well here it is: I Quit … my full time employment. It’s been just over a month and things are as smooth as butter; Tons of work, Happy clients and most importantly, a happy Ben. I’ve heard this over and over again from others who […]
I’ll be honest; We struggle with the work-life balance. Our friends sometimes mention that we are constantly be working. They are right. We do spend a lot of our time working or thinking about work. I always have the next project brewing in my head while finishing another. The same goes for Ashley; She’s […]
Paradise: “Paradise (Old East Iranian: pairidaeza) is a place in which existence is positive, harmonious and timeless” – wikipedia There are many paradises in life. You may find your paradise on a tropical island or a snowy mountain. Everyone’s paradise is different. Fortunately Ashley and I share the same vision of paradise. Our goal is to find as […]
