So… we can’t really do anything on the boat (other than small interior things) until spring, but that doesn’t mean we will be sitting around doing nothing!
We are going to be rebooting our YouTube presence so Dov has been reviewing DOZENS of sailing videos to see what gets the views because we want to be BETTER and MORE INTERESTING than them! We will be filming at least once per week and will have at least one video per week (actual boat related, not just Ikea! :-P)
I’ve been working the fundraising side and blocking out all the phases of our journey (Phase 1 is getting the boat ready to be seaworthy and we already have that active on GoFundMe). Breaking the trip down into smaller parts we have a total of 20 phases which will take us all the way back home the long way round. Plus we are looking into seeing if any companies will donate gear and/or money (once we get more traffic we can charge for ads too).
I really appreciate all of you who read this blog and share and donate to our campaigns. THANKS SO MUCH FOR ALL OF YOUR SUPPORT!
