Exploring the world while it's still large
Years of Freedom
Welcome to our site, we're Matt and Jessica!
Back in 2012 we traded what was the popular lifestyle at the time of ‘The American Dream’; our home, our careers, and consistency, for a life less ventured. While everyone around us were spending their hours living at the office to get ahead in their careers, we wanted to get out from behind the desk and explore the world.
Growing up near the shores of Lake Michigan, we’ve always had a special bond with the water. No matter what, we always find our way back to it. So nearly 8 years ago we threw off the dock lines, said goodbye to our home, and set off on the adventure of a lifetime.
From a season in Central America, crossing the Atlantic twice, to an aluminum boat refit, and then a sail to the Arctic, we like to venture outside the box. Join us for the next stage of our whirlwind life as we prepare to build a catamaran, and begin the next stage of our journey.
