BACK TO BOAT LIFE (our daily routine on the sea)

Now that the excitement (chaos) of splashing the boat and immediately preparing for cyclones has passed, we’re slowly getting back to our familiar routines of living a life on the sea.

We’re Jason and Nikki Wynn. We been living #OffTheGrid and exploring the world for 10 years.
Our first six years of #travel were an epic road trip around North America.
Now we’re on a #sailing voyage about the world. Did we have any previous sailing experience, of course not!
Neither of us is 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.
And this is why we publish our lives on the world wide web. We share in hopes of inspiring you to find your adventure.

    First vid of 2021, thanks for being a part of it with us! In this crazy, uncertain, and movement restricted world, it’s important to take delight and pleasure in our daily lives as much as the adventures. For those looking for information/vids on our solar and off-grid setup, you will find that here: Also, wanted to take a moment to answer a couple of the most common questions. 🤗 ❔ “I’m curious how long were you able to stay underwater before you left the islands? And now, how long are you able to stay under?” 🗨2 min was our average before leaving the boat. Now, we’re out of practice and 1:15 is our best. Recipe for the smoothie 🍨: Shredded coconut, banana, papaya, pineapple, frozen coconut cream, ginger, cinnamon, cacao powder, water. ❔“Why aren’t you collecting rainwater” 🗨We are! That’s what the buckets on the transom are for. 😎 ❔ “Try JB weld on the cracked stanchion” 🗨the steel stick we mentioned is a JB weld product

    How do you guys navigate and travel during Covid?? What’s the plan/startegy? Is it now super slow, changing countries every 1-2 months instead a couple of days here and there? This would be an interesting topic for people planning to leave their country for more freedom on the ocean. I’m just not sure HOW MUCH more freedom you have on a boat vs. on land. Some insight would be awesome! Thanks and keep doing what u guys are doin.

    Just rewatched your Marquesas video where you had the allergic reaction to taro leaves. I live in Hawaii and yes, many people have elevated reaction to certain taro leaves though never seen one as bad as what you had. You also said that you may be allergic to mango skins. That's also a common thing here but it is not the skin of the mango. It is the mango sap that causes a reaction. As long as you don't touch the sap, you'll be ok.

    "Soften our assumptions" Well said. Especially for a couple of overanalyzers like you and me. You guys had my attention from "tea with a nature's head" 6 or so years ago, which backed me up to I Love (the letter) "U". A lifetime adventurist, sailor, innovator myself, I was never one to spend much time watching ALthe. I think you where my first subscription. 2020 was definitely a learning year for many of us that have the never quit attitudes.. Good to see you on the water. BTW overanalyzers is a compliment to intelligent people like you guys. Many High-IQ People Tend to Be Overthinkers: They Incessantly Overanalyze Everything There’s this old Zen parable that relates how over-analysis is a common attribute of intelligent people. A Zen master was resting with his quick-witted disciple. At one point, the master took a melon out of his bag and cut it in half for the two of them to eat. In the middle of the meal, the enthusiastic disciple said, “My wise teacher, I know everything you do has a meaning. Sharing this melon with me may be a sign that you have something to teach me.” The master continued eating in silence. “I understand the mysterious question in your silence,” insisted the student. “I think it is this: the excellent taste of this melon that I am experiencing … is the taste on the melon or on my tongue …” The master still said nothing. The disciple got a bit frustrated at his master’s apparent indifference. The disciple continued, ” … and like everything in life, this too has meaning. I think I’m closer to the answer; the pleasure of the taste is an act of love and interdependence between the two, because without the melon there wouldn’t be an object of pleasure and without pleasure …” “Enough!” exclaimed the master. “The biggest fools are those who consider themselves the most intelligent and seek an interpretation for everything! The melon is good; please let this be enough. Let me eat it in peace!”

    You could do a temporary fix on that cracked rail mount. JB Weld or something similar in the cracks and then use a stainless hose clamp to clamp it down. Cover that in a little JB Weld. Should hold and keep it from cracking further until you can get a replacement.

If you use change to SSD hard drives you hard drives will become 10 times faster than normal mechanical hard drives.

    I've been watching for years going back to the van life and all your life decisions. But this is the first video where I get the feeling the grind of everyday upkeep/maintenance of keeping a boat sea ready and the inability to handle issues as they pop up due to your location it starting to wear on the both of you. I get this feeling that there's a major decision coming from you two and it will involve Curiosity and the Wynns moving on to land based adventure not water based........ Just a feeling but one that would not be surprising due to the nature of the sailing world today, COVID19 and the inability to sail freely and anywhere you see fit! What ever the decision I thank you for the many years of adventure and what ever you decide to do (continue sailing or opt for something else) I will follow! It has been a pleasure and totally entertaining watching you two live life to the fullest! God Bless TC Boyle Ahwatukee Arizona USA

    I've wondered if the average liveaboard sailor worries a bit less about stuff like politics. Whatever happens where you're anchored you can just hoist sails and bugger off to the other side of the planet where the sun is shining and people are happier and focus on the important things in life (just watched your foam fight in Quito, I was in tears laughing).
