I am super King Kamehameha bushed; just completely wiped out from an overflowing fun (as Ruby would say) weekend. So I’m going to cheat and give you a little photo essay. Hopefully, one of the family or I will come back and fill in the details. In the meantime, check out these beautiful photos.
Fifteen years ago today Victoria drove a borrowed truck, with her limited possessions into Brattleboro, Vermont to join me on what would be our first, longest, and most significant adventure together. I can still feel the crisp chill of the pre-winter air as I chatted nervously with one of the local crazies and awaited her […]
We left Pillar Point Harbor (Half Moon Bay) around 10am. The perennial fog blanketed the harbor and mainland but we knew better than to wait for it to blow off.

Deane, Lisa, & Cian met us at Convivia at the appointed time as we were finishing up our preparations. I called Carl to see if we could use his harness and he helped haul Victoria and I up the mast to do various checks and fixes. We pumped out and tried to fill up the […]

Unfortunately the ManVan had other ideas. Somehow, after hauling a ton of gear over 700 miles, the ManVan decided to give up the ghost […]
