Re: Does anyone fit the bill here for being on this Documentary?

We are planning to sail to the caribbean in August 2014. To do so, we plan to begin live aboard sometime this summer. Our adventure includes myself, my wife, my son (wife's step son) and two Alaskan Malamutes. We're not quite there yet, but might qualify.

Here is our Blog, detailing our preparations:

I've been living off the grid for most of the last 40 years , mostly in BC, with several trips to the South Pacific and Mexico.

I'd say Brent meets your criteria. He'd probably make good tv too. Kind of like a boating Macgyver but hopefully without the mullet.

I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.

Have been off grid at home for last 12 years. Same thing on the boat but don't live aboard all the time (winters are pretty frosty up here).

Re: Does anyone fit the bill here for being on this Documentary?

I agree that most cruisers live "off the grid" so my story is far from unique.

I have enjoyed cruising from Seattle to Baja since July 2012 and am now currently anchored in Puerto Vallarta. Living "off grid" for me means minimal impact on the environment and my pocketbook. I make electricity with solar and wind, use a composting head, anchor out most of the time, and eat caught fish. I would be interested in participating in a TV documentary. My blog is "The Voyage of Mariah" at kenpainter.blogspot.com and you can email me at kennethpainter@hotmail if interested.

Cheers, Ken
