South Pacific

A good friend of mine, Francis, was on his sailing journey around the world, and I joined him in the South Pacific, starting with the Cook Islands.  After traveling for nearly 24 hours, I arrived in Aitutaki ready for the journey of a lifetime.  The winds took us from that island to Niue, to Tonga, and then down to New Zealand.  2 1/2 months of sailing and living in a way unlike any other, followed by 2 1/2 months of road tripping through NZ, rounding it off with a 2 month stay in Sydney.

Enjoy the trip.

Alaska

I’d start with Alaska, but I’d have to scan a ton of images.  And I will, but not tonight.  But to let you in on a little of the subject matter, I was living in San Fransisco for a spell when I suddenly decided to get up and head to the last frontier, for commercial fishing.  a road trip?  Yes.  But the trip ended when I got to Homer, and the real adventure began.  Long lining for Black Cod (boat 1), Halibut (boat 2), and tendering Salmon (boat 3).  3 months of big seas, sometimes 20-30 ft seas, freezing waters, moose, kodiak brown bears, whale bones, and a little jewel to top it all off.

pictures to follow at some point.

next stop: south pacific

The goal

The goal of this tumblr is to present my work in one place, a site that can show where I’ve been, what I’ve seen, and most importantly, what I’ve learned.
