West Marine Book Signing This Saturday

Christi will be doing a book signing at West Marine in Point Loma (1250 Rosecrans St, San Diego, CA 92106) from 10:00 – 3:00 this Saturday, May 29th. We were originally also going to do a presentation on the around the world journey, but the presentation has been rescheduled for June 26th at 1:00 pm. We hope to meet some of our blog readers either this Saturday or on June 26th.

Speaking at Anacortes Trawlerfest

We had hoped to keep up real-time postings for the road trip, but it didn’t work out. We’ll post the rest of the highlights soon and do full write ups in the relatively near future. Meanwhile, we wanted to remind everyone that we are speaking at Trawlerfest in Anacortes, WA this weekend. On Friday from 2:30 to 3:30 about our circumnavigation aboard Kosmos. On Saturday we will be doing a joint presentation with Denis and Mary Unstot on adjusting to living aboard. We hope that we will get to meet many blog readers in Anacortes!

It is easy to fall behind real time posting. Sometimes we do not have good Internet, but usually after a long day of driving, we are just too tired to sort through pictures and do a post. Here are 4 days in one post.

Extensive Book Review

Jeff Merrill did the most extensive review to date of The Unexpected Circumnavigation. Full disclosure: Jeff is our friend and our Nordhavn salesperson. But above all, Jeff has incredible integrity, and we believe his review is objective and complete. All of the feedback we have gotten on the book so far has been positive. We are still the number 1 selling travel book on Lulu!
