Hello all on Cruiser Log!
We are Bramble, a group of musicians and merrymakers based in the US, and we dream of embarking on the journey of a lifetime!
Things you should know about us:
We are adventurous, tenacious, we dream unconventionally, and we dream big!
We play danceable folk, roots, soul, gypsy, and many other types of music, all on acoustic instruments, and we all sing!
We are not only musicians, but also avid bicyclists!
Our dream, in short:
1) To earn passage by seafaring vessel(s) from the East Coast of the United States, over to Europe, with our instruments and bicycles, by offering manual labor and/or performance for crew and/or guests.
2) To then tour, by bicycle, self-supported, around many European countries. With our instruments in tow, on our bikes, we look to perform on stages and street corners alike, and spread our infectious attitude of positivity, of unconditionally giving back what we can to the abundant universe that gives so much to us already!
How you may be involved:
If you are wanting to travel, or are already planning to travel on a craft to Europe, from the US, in the spring of 2013, you would have, at your service, a handful (4-6) of eager, joyful, and hardworking crew members (ages 21-29), learned in the following abbreviated list of skills:
sailing, cooking, cleaning, heavy-lifting, and, of course, entertainment!
We are not just looking for a "free ride" either. Our monetary contribution may not be commercially worthy, but it would also not be our only contribution!
We believe our dream to be low-carbon-footprint-impact, "green", if you will, due to its extremely low purchase and use of petroleum, and its high use of human muscle power! We believe it also to be inspirational
to others, and, with your
potential help, completely attainable!
We plan to document our adventure by pen and video, and create a film which we would subsequently submit to film festivals worldwide, because we consider our dream to be unique and inspiring! If our dream comes true, we could easily help inspire hundreds of not thousands of others around the world to more fervently pursue their own dreams, especially those dreams that create a less toxic and more nourishing impact on the world as we know it, and therefore help make the world we live in a more positive place!
If you feel moved to offer help, words of advice, of encouragement, or anything else, please respond to this thread, and spread word of it where you can. We look to set sail in May of 2013. We are inspired people, and we hope you feel inspired by our proposal. Days of high adventure await us, make no mistake!
