@alisabrittany you can decide to cap how much you pay monthly...just hit the "Become a patron" button, scroll down past the "tiered membership rates" and hit the "Make a custom pledge" button...from there you can SET THE MONTHLY LIMIT YOU WANT TO PAY (sorry for the caps but I just wanted to highlight it for you) and not by how many videos they produce. It is very easy to chose this option...but to get to this page, you have to join Patreon first (being a member doesn't obligate you to pay anything). I'm sure they will appreciate any amount no matter how small it is. Hope this helps you.

My dad had a iron chain to hang into the sea as a lightning rod. He connected the metal mast with the salt water. I don’t know if he actually been hit by lightning, but he believed it would work.

Yea, Nikki's over the top. Greta is the queen and the world knows it! It's just always amazing to hear her speak, she''s always just as honest and forthright as she can be! Even in the a very conservative, narrow minded place like (Texas) there's still lots of us who believe in science and know the truth, that the world is indeed round and that Svante Thunberg is one incredible man and father. So, we can all work together, 2 beautiful Aussie's, a beautifully terrific Brit and 2 world changing Swede's along with wonderful American sponser's. Also, thanks to Arnold S and Leo D and all the other's trying to make life better for us all.

Have you considered why global warming will probably kill us all if we do not reduce our carbon footprint? The Earth has decided to use global warming as its method to get rid of humans. The Earth probably designed carbon to be the great equalizer. If humans abuse the planet, carbon will whack us. What genius. The Earth was doing just fine--thank you very much--for about 4.5 billion years until after we humans came along. It appears that our early relationship with the Earth was excellent as Neanderthals who clubbed and plundered our way in and out of damp, bat infested caves. But now our farming, our ranching, our driving, our flying, our boating, our manufacturing, our birth control pills, and our hot showers have sent the carbon experiment over the cliff. We will soon be extinct.

Hi guys love the channel - Ive circumnavigated the world 3 times mostly on cats - just wanted to give you couple of pointers - not even sure if you have time to read these comments but ill tell ya anyway. Always take loads of vaseline on crossings and lube up all your reefing points and anywhere else you get chaffe - chaffe is the biggest problem on long crossings - it washes out clean eventually and solves all chaffe problems - also I always took 1.5 litre bottled water per person per day as emergency water and put it in the bilge then even if your tanks drop thier load into the bilge you always ok for water - its happened to me also - my email is and always happy to help world ocean sailors if i can - cheers Piet :)

Hey Reiley and Elaine, could you perhaps rig up a funnel with a large wide outer surface area and a gradual slope, think the width of a drum cymbal, but with more depth, that would allow you to capture rain on a regular basis? I was just wondering out loud as I watched. Maybe even a pot type contraption with a hole and a hose leading into the tank? I am not a sailor so I may be describing something total obvious that is already on the market. But if not, it strikes me as a good idea. Am I wrong?

Why does white rich first world people insist on calling themselves vagabonds or homeless? i get it you are privileged enough to dont need to have a real job so you can just wander and travel around the world and that tecnically makes you vagabonds but it looks so disrespectful and detached from reality..

Hi Elayna & Riley! I hope this isn't a dumb question (probably is..) but i'm genuinely wondering; Why didn't Greta and her father catch a flight back to Europe if they needed to get there quickly? Do they not fly due to environmental footprint? Thanks :)

So love this saga and you three. About When Breath Becomes Air....I've known Paul's widow since she was Lenny's age. It's a remarkable book and I want to alert you to another, similar one. It's called The Bright Hour by Nina Riggs. She lived in my city (Greensboro NC) and urged Lucy (Paul's widow) to get in touch with her husband and she did. They became good friends and contemplated a relationship but the 3500 mile difference in lives was too much. She's a great writer and I know you will value it. I have introduced about a dozen folks to your channel....they are all thankful! Much love and respect.....

Is it me, or have the last few videos been like watching a REAL reality show?! I've actually had actual anxiety these last few episodes, as I watch them cross this ocean that just seems to want to swallow them at every turn. I'm sure they made it, but at the end of every episode I'm like "NOOOO, give me more!" Stay safe guys.
