Here’s a little tidbit about us. Trent and I met during an aerial photo shoot for a gala I coordinated in October of 2011. He was the owner/operator of an R44 helicopter and had recently moved to town to run a tour company. We lived in Fredericksburg, Texas, which is a small and very touristy, retirement community of about 10,000. We didn’t really keep in touch thereafter but would randomly run into each other in town. It wasn’t until the same event rolled around in October 2013 that I was a week out from a divorce and Trent flew me around the gala for another photo shoot in his Jet Ranger. We were both 29 years old at the time. We each asked the photographer, our mutual friend Marc Bennett, about one other and ended up meeting for lunch a few weeks later. After a really slow start, and many long chats by a fire pit at his place in the country, we began planning our lives together. A series of unfortunate events with the tour company and some serious prayer led him to shut down Zulu Helicopters. We joked about sailing away and never coming back, like people do. As we were figuring out our next move we started getting more serious about exploring that option. One thing led to another and we decided that we could indeed set sail and live off shore. Here we are, just a couple of kids, hoping to inspire others to live their dreams and to go where the wind blows you. Do it while you’re young!
