It started as an idea a few years back. More casual conversation about “would a bigger sail be something you’re interested in” than making true plans. I’ve found a lot of joy in saying yes. I’ll commit to big things, to people, to life. Monday morning we depart for a true unknown. No land in sight, weeks on end. It will be one of the most difficult and I’m certain most rewarding thing that I’ve ever done.

“Once in a lifetime.” That’s what I keep hearing about this trip. It’s a major undertaking no doubt, but I have a hard time thinking that there’s anything that’s worth doing once that I wouldn’t want to do again. Check back in in a month and a half and see if I still feel the same way! ——
@backcountry has been supporting my odd ideas for adventure for years now, and actually they are the reason that @sonofaboat and I first met. ——-
Sailing across an ocean is a bit gear intensive, as you might imagine. From extreme waterproof gear, headlamps, knives, camping stoves to sleeping bags. One of the best things we bought for this trip were our two new lounge chairs, aka Crazy Creeks. Check out @backcountry and you can use code WILL15 for 15% off your first purchase at backcountry.com!

We’ve all read the famous quote “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” By H. Jackson Brown Jr.
In just over a week @sonofaboat and I will be setting sail, literally, bound for Hawaii. It’s a flood of emotions, but mostly excitement, one of those trips that we hope will shape the mind and soul for the rest of life.
