About Patches, Yoska & Esmeralda

They call me Patches O’Nassis, I am the first person to live fulltime in a teardrop trailer pulled by a motorcycle. I have been living fulltime on the road since October 2012 and it is time to raise funds to write a book about my life of adventure before heading into the next phase, living a life of adventure with as tiny of an environmental footprint as possible.

Join me as I recall adventures: the good, the bad and the what the hell was that. Figuring out if one can truly live outside the clutches of society, is there true freedom. What it is like to be a woman living a life most men dream about.

Also watch adventures of Yoska Love the chiweenie, the Silkie Chicken named Esmeralda the Biker Chick, Blue the motorcycle, TicTac the teardrop trailer and I as we research and raise money to rebuild our home into a more environmentally, sustainable life on the road like no other. Letting life lead.

What will your pledge support?
  • Support us going further into zero waste and a self sustaining traveling crew.
  • Rebuilding Blue into an electric, solar charged motorcycle
  • Updates to TicTac for a more sustainable home
  • Funding for:
    • Book about my life
    • Children’s book about Yoska and Esmeralda
    • Interactive website about our travels, Yoska & Esmeralda and sustainability for young audiences 
    • Weekly professionally edited video series about our life, travels, sustainability

What does your pledge do for you?

  • You get to follow our travels and adventures.
  • You will learn how we are working towards a self sustaining, simple lifestyle.
  • Many stories you may not believe but are a normal everyday occurrence to us. 
  • Opening the portal to ideas of other ways of living that might interest you.
  • Watching the coolest dog and chicken grow and have their own little mini adventures in a life together. 

Why is this important to me?

  • I believe as a woman, who lives life differently, it is important to share my life, goals and struggles to inspire other women to live their dreams.
  • The environment is important to me. I love the outdoors and I want to do my part to educate and live a life that is sustainable, uses renewable resources and is environmentally friendly.

What do I hope to accomplish?

  • Inspire people to follow their dreams, live as who they are and believe that no matter their gender, race or sexuality they are important and can make a difference in the world.
  • Show the world how one can be sustainable with little space and little money
  • Empower the people to take control of their environment and show them they can protect the environment for future generations.
  • Gaining acceptance for those who choose or need to live differently.
