 It’s hard to think that six years after seeing a poster at a rowing club advertising a rowing race across the North Atlantic that I would be getting ready to row across my second ocean.  I’ve been lucky to do some incredible things in-between our first race across the sea, and our next trip from Dakar to Miami.  I biked across Australia, rowed around Vancouver Island and the Olympic Peninsula, and spent some time walking and canoeing with my brother down the Rio Grande.

My first book is out about the first trip.  It’s called Rowing into the Son.  I would love for you to visit the website, I hope you enjoy it, and hope that I run into you at a reading.  I have a few other stories about my other adventures along the way.  The Waterless talks about my hardest day day biking across Australia.  Oariffic Tale talks about a crash landing of a tiny rowboat in the waves of the Washington Coast.

I am thrilled, scared and honored to be the captain of a new team getting ready to row another ocean.  I am humbled by the Canadian Wildlife Federation’s support of us, as well as all the sponsors and individuals that have made this a continuous and ever-expanding dream.  I hope you will enjoy our next adventure.
