Circumnavigate The Globe

As I continue to brainstorm ideas about the aesthetics of this site, I was startled to discover that there are actually people visiting. Strange. I haven't mentioned the existence of this site to more than one or two people for many months. I'd figured that by now it'd be long forgotten and I'd have all the time I needed to get the ball rolling.

So far I haven't mentioned, in any detail, what this site is about. I'd been hoping to wait until the layout is actually finalized before explaining myself. However everything I read online insists that I should have several weeks worth of content before 'going live'. Content is king. So, umm... expect more from me from here on in.

This is my plan: Circumnavigate the globe.

This is the catch: Do it without the use of air travel.

Here's the tricky part: I don't own a sailboat.

No air travel, no time limits, and nowhere near enough money saved up. I'm convinced it'll make for a story worth telling, hence this website.

It's been a long time in the coming (10 years give or take), though we still won't actually leave for another couple months. My target date of departure is October 1st. Though I've just realized that if we wait an extra 10 days or so, I'll have a chance to spend Thanksgiving with family. Turkey dinner is my favorite meal of the year. Decisions, decisions...
