Welcome to My Site—Are You Ready for an Adventure?!

Explore my site, immerse yourself in true blog posts of sailing around the world, post-voyage disaster-response work with the Red Cross, and our simple life on Arizona’s White Mountain.

Although It’s Enough, our Amel Super Maramu sailboat, is now taking others around the world, Glen and I continue to keep our life interesting with land adventures that will leave you on the edge of your seat.

If you dream of retiring early and having an adventure of your own, or are simply curious about life on a cruising sailboat, you will find authentic, feels-like-you’re-right-there experiences in my debut memoir, Escape from the Ordinary, and upcoming sequel, Crossing Pirate Waters.

Hearing from my readers is my favorite part of each day—if you have questions or comments, I would love to hear from you. Click here to contact me and I’ll respond as quickly as life will allow.
