Hi Nick, thanks for checking out my campaign and for taking the time to reply to my post.
Yes I am asking people to pay for me to go on a holiday, much as a reporter on a travel show gets paid to go on holidays, but what I want to be able to bring to people is a greater experience then can be gained by watching a t.v. show.
During the 5 month trip we'll only be traveling until mid-day or before (the coolest part of the day in the tropics)and then spend the heat of the day and afternoon doing live video, uploading videos, writing a blog and longer stories with images about the fishing, wildlife encounters, etc.
In Jan-Feb this year I was approaching sponsors, then in Mar-Apr contacting production companies and now am running the Indiegogo campaign.
Obviously I have great belief and determination in what I'm trying to achieve and truely believe I can deliver an experience to people that can't be gained by simply watching a travel or adventure t.v series. So while it is true that I am trying to raise money so as to be able to undertake a long vacation this is only half of what I'm trying to do, I'm also trying to create an entertainment website where people can be a part of this adventure on a daily basis.
