Our last post ended in Southeast Alaska, where we’d encountered a whole range of sailing conditions, revisited places we’d enjoyed in 2014, and discovered new places including a river where both black and brown bears fished for salmon.
Thanks for visiting Gone Floatabout! We’re two young Americans who love oceans, mountains, and adventure. We sailed around the world from 2006-10 on an ancient boat that needed quite a lot of TLC. Then we moved to the Swiss Alps, and now we’re completing a voyage to the Arctic aboard a less ancient, but wooden, boat. Of course we’re more experienced now than when we first left the dock as college kids who’d never been offshore… but we can guarantee that our adventures are still every bit as full of wonderful challenges, people, wildlife, and unexpected moments! So come ‘floatabout’ with us as we share all this here🙂
