Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Personalities do not translate into the written word well. I
use a few adjectives to describe myself or at least what my
view is. I do know that as a single hander I am unique, even in
sailing community. I am probably very different from anyone
have ever met and not in the “we are all special” kind of way.
have done and seen things that most can’t even imagine. I live
well as I can and have all the faults and frailties that make me
part of the human race.
I am passionate, friendly, and curious
I have been involved in a web site called couchsurfing for several
years now. That being said, the fact that I am in Mexico I am
constantly looking for crew if you want to talk about crewing with
me for a week or more let me know. That being said I can give you
references and friends in the US and world wide that will vouch for
my character and competence. I don't expect anything from anyone
except to have a good time and be safe.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I sailed single handed 1500 miles from San Francisco Ca. to San
Carlos, Mexico. I'm back in the Sea of Cortez to sell my old boat
to buy sails for the bigger boat.
I just started putting together a book for my wildlife
I have captured along my travels. I was encouraged to publish by an
artist from France who is here working for a few months. The old
boat is listed finally. Now comes the wait and see part. I am
focused on SE Asia as a destination but not until March 2013.
I'm back in San Francisco for visit and looking forward to meeting
old friends and maybe some new ones.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Fixing anything, writing poetry, making stuff work, living on
shoe string, sailing, scuba diving, photography, dreaming.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sailing, writing, intellectual input, spell check, tools, freedom.

I wrote the update below to try and share what keeps me living on
the ocean and to try and build a better idea of parts of me for
others that may read this, and maybe they'll understand.
Update: 4/18/13 In the last year I have thought a great deal about
what holds meaning for me. Freedom to explore life, learning new
things about myself other people and building satisfying
relationships. Most other stuff is trivial when compared to who is
in our lives and just the freedom to be off yoke of modern society.
The freedom to see the ocean world first hand instead of on the
page or the flickering screen in a dull walled box.
It has been a lonely year with a lot of work on the boat and making
progress toward crossing the pacific. The challenges of being
relatively sane in an insane world have taken it's toll over the
years but as I get closer to going to sea and making the boat
capable of crossing oceans, it seems my life make more sense. I
have made a few connections here and there but being an introvert
has a price higher on a sailboat than on land.
I would not trade though for a more secure life on land because of
the extraordinary experiences I have living on the sea. Dancing
dolphins at sunset, swimming with sea lions, catching dinner,
sleeping in when I feel like it. Visiting sea birds and the other
nomads that hold a kinship that landsmen will never imagine. These
make all the hard work and sometimes difficult conditions all
worthwhile as there is no other way to feel this alive and this
free that occurs to me.
