Have you ever heard the saying, “Don't bite off more than you can chew because nobody looks attractive spitting it back out.”?  Well, that’s been me for the past few weeks.  I had a plan, it started to change, and rather than let it be what it was, I held onto it desperately.  That was a mistake…

“Easy does it” hasn’t ever been a part of my mantra.  But this time my desire to create the dream vacation and keep up with everything else collided in a less-than-desirable way.  I couldn’t let the whole situation just slide by without acknowledging it.  Then of course, because it involves the people I love most, I tend to be extra emotional about it all.

Luckily it wasn’t an epic failure, and nothing was ruined, just a very good reminder to set reasonable expectations.

And speaking of expectations…that is what has led us to the boat show.  We are itching to get a peek at a now 3-year-old HH50 Ocean Cruiser.  How has it held up?  What’s the wear and tear look like?  What problems or issues has the owner run into?  These are all things we’re eager to know.

I believe it’s the first Ocean Cruiser HH ever built and will be a much more realistic expectation of what our HH44 OC will resemble.  Because we didn’t go for the Sport Cruiser with the carbon mast and daggerboards.  So we shall see…

WE’RE JASON AND NIKKI WYNN. A couple of modern-day documentarians, perpetual travelers, and seekers of tall tales.

We’ve been chasing our curiosity around the world on wheels and keels since 2011. Why? Because curiosity is the key to unlocking life. It pushes us outside our comfort zone, softens our assumptions, and helps us embrace the great unknown. The more we let our curiosity lead the way, the more we discover about ourselves and the world around us.

Our home is also our transportation and we spend weeks away from civilization and sometimes land. Self-reliance and living a sustainable lifestyle are a must. It's all about managing our resources and we’re always looking for new and better ways to do so.

We've lived off the grid for over 10 years now in everything from a Van to RV to a Sailboat. And over time we have learned a lot about renewable energy, creating safe drinking water, and managing our waste.

Our journey is ever-evolving but the mission remains the same: #CultivateCuriosity
