Today’s story is about being out on the water, in the islands, and taking advantage of what mother nature provides. From collecting rainwater to foraging with a friend and using stored power from the sun to have a date night on the deck.

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.

  • Okay I’m not trying to be rude and I love the vids you guys make but the part where Jason is telling Nikki she can’t open the coconuts irks me soooo bad!! If he wants dinner so badly why can’t he start it himself? Pizza is not hard to make. Jason you’re a big boy, don’t start treating Nikki like she’s your mother.

  • Ok who tough you guys to make pizza? First you never roll your pizza dough. always hand toss it. While I think I understand why you replaced the traditionally sauce with BBQ sauce I think you put way to much on. BBQ sauce is met to be brushed on not smeared on with a shovel and a trowel. your toppings should always go on before your cheese. and speaking of cheese. GOUDA! REALLY? I can see it now Italian world wide are cussing you out in Italian for making such a blunder....hahahaha

  • omg, NEVER play chicken with machete and your holding hand! either secure the object you want to cut so it doesnt move and use both hands on the machete, or place machete on object you wanna cut, and slam the object and machete onto the ground , so you avoid risk of cutting yourself.

  • Try Fog X to stop your camera from fogging up. Or if you can find the dish soap made with pumice like they sell in "3rd world" countries it helps stop car windows from fogging up. I've seen Costa Ricans apply a thin layer inside car windows and it works. Or it's better than nothing.. Y'all are making me miss living in the tropics! I drank fermented pineapple there and it was awesome. My friend called it chicha de piña. Chicha is any fermented fruit or corn that isn't distilled. Thanks for the memory, I hadn't thought of chicha in a while.

Sit down and hold it between your feet, with shoes on or folded towel so your protected and it can't roll away. Better still a Y shaped bit of tree wood to hold it so NO ! body parts are near that blade or hay de - husk them on the beach. Thombs are important, they need love to. Sorry to be an old Nanny!

  • just amazing! loved the music and the editing to the underwater shots. Need tips on startup video eqpt. for just journaling my new Solo Horizons RV adventures, cellphone/gimble and what is that tablet stand with speaker?! How would I capture the wonderful cooking shots solo? I would love to just have this for my kids and grandchildren. I'm thinking my grandson would love to learn to fly a drone and he's already good with a camera at age 6 1/2! so when he goes along that would be fun to capture. Picking up my travel trailer this week! and completely overwhelmed.

  • The question is would you have a seven year old boy hold the coconut while you were hitting it with a machete ? Why would the life long use of you hand be any less important? Rule number 1 is always keep your body behind the tool! Throw the machete away it, it has no place on a boat. It's used for clearing fields not handwork. You both are too important to us to get maimed. By the way I'm 20 min from a hospital, how about you?

  • Do you have a vacuum cleaner with hose attachment? Do you have large ZipLock bags? Place the camera and a small desiccant bag in housing, but do not close the door, then place in the ZipLock bag. Place the end of the vacuum hose into the bag and turn on the vacuum. After the air in the bag is evacuated, close & secure the camera case. This should resolve your fogging problem.
