Fiji was supposed to be a stopover...now here we are six months later finally catching the last leg of our journey. And even that didn’t go the way we thought it would. But honestly, nothing this year has gone the way any of us ever thought it would.
WHO ARE WE?
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.

  • Great video! Good for you picking up trash on the beach! The world would be a better place if there were more people like you! I'll never forget walking on a beach in Guatemala and being shocked by the amount of trash left on the beach. I'm surprised the government didn't have clean up crews, it would make the beach nice again and give people jobs. By the way I discovered you guys from watching sailing Zatara.

  • All you need is a shoelace to open a wine bottle with a cork. Push the cork into the bottle. Put a couple of knots in the end of the shoe lace and insert the knotted end into the wine so the knot is lower than the bottom of the cork. then ease up the shoe lace so the know is below the cork and pull out the cork; voila!

  • Here's a little tip for you guys, next time you're stuck with a wine, without a opener 😉 Find a shoe with a rubber sole, then put the wine in the shoe at the heel, then tap it gently against a wall, or something hard. You have to do this vertical (sideways). Then wola, the cork will pop out because of the pressure inside the bottle 😉 And congratulations, finally back home ❤

  • OK with all that money spent just to pick up your boat, couldn't you pay someone at Tonga to sail your boat to a place you could meet up to it?

    Carlos GarciaCarlos Garcia6 muaj më parë
    • The first problem is that the person sailing the boat out could not easily get back into Tonga & the Wynns would have to pay for their flight. 2nd, Curiosity is not in sailable condition. Prior to leaving Tonga the Wynns had dismantled several things in preparation for doing repairs and upgrades when they returned (like removing both fuel tanks). And 3rd, there’s also a crate of boat parts & supplies that they shipped over somewhere on Tonga that still needs to be claimed and unloaded. Curious Minion

  • You guys like too many comments. I like that you started adding the segment bookmarks. It’s lucky that this happened to you. Gives you great content. Let’s you naturally be more ‘real’ which is a important thing these days. Zatara also helped with that. You could easily take all your content, repackage it a bit, make a timeline of videos now that you know the end (or will know). Or make a 45 min special of the COVID stuff. Share positive aspects and the negative but overall it’s a good message. I could see CNN airing a series like this. For sure. Take zatara’s footage and maybe one more group or family and their experiences during this. The 45 min special could be a introduction and then maybe CNN picks up a whole series. Pays you to... sail the world with Zatara. Combining the footage from both you guys, as a editor, I could make a series out of that easily. You could sell a version to CNN (I worked on declassified with them) (and another doc I did will be on Netflix soon called Bending The Arc which is about Partners in Health. They do amazing work all over the world in places nobody pays attention to. Google them) anyway sell a version to CNN and make one geared for young adults/teens that airs on natgeo Saturday’s. Or really just the one cnn special could drive enough promotion for both channels to go well over a million subscribers. I think people prefer ALworld. I do. I pay $150 a month for AT&T’s Tv service and box and I haven’t turned it on in six months. I’m too scared to call to cancel it. They’re mean!

    • Yep, the timing isn't great with cyclone season, but what else are you going to do??? I'm sure they're making that assessment now, as they just got released from 21 days of quarantine. They need to get Curiosity all cleaned up first & run checks on all the systems. Then there's a crate of boat parts somewhere on Vava'u that sat out in the rain for weeks during monsoon season. It needs to be unpacked & sorted to see what survived. Based on what survived they can start to make a plan for repairs and how long they'll need to stay on the hard. And their insurer will have something to say about it all too. Stay tuned! Curious Minion
