They Call Them “Marriage Savers”

We are starting to accept that a 60-foot catamaran is a big boat, even though we don't feel Seamlessly is big. This is probably because it is our first boat and we have nothing to compare it with. All of our training captains, friends, marina-neighbors, contractors, and generally everyone else recommended that we should ...

Our (less than awesome) Sailboat Buying Experience

As of today, we are the proud owners of a beautiful 60-foot sailing catamaran; a 2006 Fountaine Pajot Eleuthera 60. This post is an uncensored summary of our experience, including the good and the bad. There are many YouTube videos and blog posts floating around the internet that made the boat purchasing process look ...

Trawler or Catamaran?!

We started out with a dream of sailing around the world, exploring and discovering - then we started to research and quickly concluded that our assumption was correct; it's not as easy as it sounds. Although we love the look of monohull sailboats, it didn't take us long to strike monohull sailboats from our list. ...

We are buying a catamaran

It's official, we've made an offer on a catamaran; a stunning Fountaine Pajot Eleuthera! Yes, you read that right: we are trading in the wheels and roads for seas and SAILS! Do we know how to sail? No. Have we ever lived on a boat? No. Do we have experience living in tight spaces ...

Abert Lake

After spending a few days at Annie Creek Sno-Park, we decided to continue on and ended up at Lake Abert in Oregon. The smoke from the forest fires lingered for a day, but then it cleared out. We only spent a couple of days here, partly because of the smell and also because we wanted ...

Annie Creek Sno-Park

After spending more than a week at the REV service center in Coburg, we were ready to escape. We set off with new air conditioning covers, a new windshield, and a new rear leveling valve. We ended up at Annie Creek Sno-Park (42.761733, -122.059034) near Fort Klamath and Crater Lake, Oregon. We decided to ...

Back to the West

Over the last few weeks, we toured the United States and Canada to meet some of the Healthful Pursuit readers, as part of the 2018 The Keto Diet book tour. We were let down by the REV Group Service Center in Decatur, Indiana, but thankfully the REV Group Service Center in Oregon could fit ...

Dream Home on Wheels: Explorker3 – The Planning Stage II

We finally got the chance to visit Global Expedition Vehicles (GXV) in May, a visit that was long overdue. GXV is one of the leading manufacturers of customer expedition vehicles, based in Springfield, Missouri. And, if you remember from this post about our dream home on wheels, GXV was in the running for making our ...

Dream Home on Wheels: Explorker3 – The Planning Stage I

It has been 8 months since we bid farewell to our house and left Calgary in Explorker2, our 40-foot motorcoach. We had a pretty good feeling about what we were getting ourselves into when we decided to embark on a life on the road, but as with anything -- you just never know until ...

Explorking Louisiana: Sightseeing in New Orleans & Area

During our stay in Louisiana, we decided to enjoy some sightseeing, instead of our usual quiet-spot-in-nature way of explorking. First, we rented a little house in Bywater for a few days, which was a great way to soak in the soul of New Orleans. It was nice to have reliable high-speed internet and catch ...
