Blog Envy

For the last year or so, I've been reading about The Great Siberian Sushi Run. In a nutshell, 3 couples that each own a fancy yacht decided to sail (motor) from Seattle, up to Alaska, across the Bering Strait, past Siberia, and down to Japan.
Then they cruised the Western Pacific for a season.

I haven't read much of it lately, and caught up last night. Because of the piracy concerns around Somalia, Ken was dropping out after 2 years. He had decided to have his boat shipped to the Mediterranean Sea, leaving his two counterparts to sail (motor) through Indonesia and South-East Asia.
I actually got quite disappointed! I've been living (motoring) vicariously through them for a while, and didn't want them to stop.

I haven't been paying as much attention to blogs in the last year or two (except for a few really cool sailing/circumnavigating stories), so I don't know how normal people are doing. But I've got too much vested interest in this...

For more fun "(my) fantasy reading", check out Slapdash, Indigo Moon, and "nearly-locals" Zero To Cruising...

  1. These are neat! My worst fear would be cruising on a small boat, but I love this insight into your dreams.
