Ryan Thompson, his wife Kimbery, and their four children live in Puerto Rico. Their home is desroyed and floods with every rainstorm, their boat is lost. He is disabled from a car accident. They have lost everything and are trying to get off the island to a safe place to stay. They are currently living in their car. The situation is urgent due to the worsening conditions on the island. Supplies don't make it to the mountainous region where they live. He needs 1000 dollars to get plane tickets for his family.

Still working on our recovery. Still struggling financially. I started this gofundme to tie up some loose ends so that we can get back to boatlife for awhile.

Hello, this is our original crowdfunding campaign directly after Hurricane Maria. We did really good raising $1035. We are now back in the USA, and we are trying to restablish our life and restore some normalcy in our situation.

Currently we have a rental on the Big Island of Hawaii, and we are trying to get settled after traveling around and waiting for Puerto Rico to come back together.
After a year of being homeless, we decided to not go back home to Puerto Rico. We are trying to get settled in Hawaii, but life has been hard.

Our power and water bills are due to get turned off by the end of December 2018, we have a few days left to get caughtup on those bills, which total $1100.

And then our future plans are a little uncertain at the moment. We had moved on to our sailboat in Puerto Rico, in order to save money. We are trying now to replace our sailboat as well.
Boatlife is cheap. No rent, and no utility bills depending on where we anchor.

To learn more about our previous boat, see the video here.
