PLAN A.... 365 Days - 40 Countries - 29,000 miles
AROUND THE AMERICAS SOLO!
When I plan, I plan BIG!!!! :)
This is my next big adventure... IF
I get the boat ready, IF
I don't run out of money getting the boat ready and IF
I don't get hurt getting the boat ready, I expect to shove off end of May of this year!
I've researched online for anyone that has solo'ed around the americas, and I haven't found anyone yet! A couple guys from Europe did the trip but returned to Europe. As far as I can tell, they did not return to the starting point in the Americas.... (If anyone can set me straight, then I'll do some other adventure)
I've been thinking of this trip for a couple years as my PLAN B, but it's moved up to PLAN A... (Original Plan A was to head South to Mexico and Panama then turn West for the "Milk Run" Pacific Crossing)
PLAN B is to go at the Americas SOLO-NON-STOP!!! All the way around baby! NOW THAT WOULD BE BIG! hummm might be Plan A now… :) Stay tuned!
Global Change has made the Northwest Passage Navigable for the past couple years, but is still very unpredictable. The Climate Change "Cycle" (natural with human help) may just close the NWP again, just as quick as it opened (Scientists are still steadying the processes that effect the Polar Icecaps).
Looks like I will have some competition!! A guy on the East Coast of the US plans to do the same thing, but counter-clockwise... and NON-STOP! I figure if I'm going to be gone for a year, I want to see and experience ALL the countries along my route and have fresh food and upload blogs/photos/videos, not just see waves and far off coastline! When I pull into Seattle, I want to fly the flags of ALL the countries in the Americas!!!
I'm putting another webpage together soon...Stay tuned for some professional help to get a really cool website running! www.LongwayHome.tv
I had a lot of positive feedback with my videos from the Alaska Trip, so I plan to film this adventure and produce a DVD and pitch it to the Travel Channel or NatGeo.
Here's to WARM cruising for 365 days! :)
Please leave comments! I dare ya! :)
