Re: Another Family starting their adventure...

Fun vid, but I ended up skipping to about 7 mins to where the "boat talk" finally started. That's what I want to know more about

It was all little kids, dogs and snow up until then, which is probably more interesting for those sailing with small kids.

For all my troubles, I was rewarded with "more about the boat in the next episode" ...
So I still don't know about your boat, or your plans

Re: Another Family starting their adventure...

Great start with your vlog! When are you heading out and where are you off to? I was interested in the homeschooling part of your video. We are heading out early 2017 with our two boys who will be 10 & 12 and I've been researching that angle a lot lately. Look forward to following your journey.

Well, thanks for even taking the time to look at it. I couldn't post more on the boat as we are still working on the purchase and it's not a done deal quite yet. So, sorry for the tease. We wanted to show everything from the point when we started and all that we had to go through to get to this point with the kids dogs snow and all. I knew it wasn't going to the most interesting for everyone but I promise the next one will be all about the boat well at least 80% HAHA! Thanks again for checking it out.

Thanks for checking it out too! We plan to deliver the boat back to the Chesapeake, do some work and head out into the Chesapeake and mid Atlantic this summer then head south next Oct./Nov. Well, that's the plan as of right now but that can always change. We need to get our boat first. haha! Thanks again for checking it out.

Re: Another Family starting their adventure...

I enjoyed the video. I homeschooled one of my sons for a year in Africa and remember the challenges of that. For him the issue was that his brothers got into school and there was no room for him so he was not a willing participant. Made it very difficult. I think it would have been better received if everyone was doing it. I wish you luck on your journey!

Sounds like you are planning a great adventure and going about it the right way by doing plenty of planning. You can be certain that I will be following your blogs and videos along the way. Just one small point Drake Paragon has been blogging for some years now and Bella Luna is the name of his yacht, this may cause some confusion with your postings. Cheers for now and good luck with your adventure.
