Non-stop. Solo. Unassisted. Sat 15 May 2010 8.04 EDT That's when The Guardian story hit the wires announcing that 16-yr-old Aussie, Jessica Watson, completed her seven month journey around the world. It was a remarkable accomplishment but was not recorded by the World Speed Sailng Record Council because they discounted the "youngest category" (primarily to protect young people) and because she was 2000 nautical miles short of the distance required to travel north of the equator. Records aside, like Jesse she was greeted by thousands of fans in Australia and her interview was broadcast live on the screen outside the Sydney Opera House. More to come on Jesse, this unique "club of sailors" and his current endeavor in the next post. Attached is an image of his route from his documentary, Lionheart.
I built my first piece of furniture!! 😁 It is an ottoman to match the chair and soon to match my sofas. I’m so proud of myself. It was not easy. All credit due to God for blessing me with the gift of creativity 🙏🏾 #diyhomedecor#shedidthat
How much would you guess my pack weighed? ———————————— It was my first time snowshoeing this weekend! I’ve read that as a rule of thumb your pack should not exceed 20% of your body weight. It’s a good thing I carry a little more love than usual right now because these these things weren’t light! I haven’t weighed them because they’re rented but I’m guessing 4-5lbs. ———. ————————-PS- I forgot all about St. Patty’s this weekend because I was too busy having fun in the mountains but my pack was green enough. 💚💚
