  • The sleeping cabin, and some cool technology

    After my last blog post, there was some discussion about leaving some air space below my sleeping pad to allow condensation and water to collect. I wanted to expand a bit on that with additional photos and details on an amazing find that I made of a new product from that bike crazy nation – […]

  • Mahalo!

    Hey everyone – Greg here. I’m about 10 km North of Pentincton on Okanagan lake right now with Ken taking a turn on the pedals. I’m in the cabin and decided to write a blog post and send it via satellite phone. So – why are we here and not on the Pacific around Vancouver […]

  • Jordans first post from the land…

    “I placed my bare feet onto the white gel coat behind the drive shaft gingerly, slowly brought my other foot up and around the edge of the boat and finally in the hatch and slid down slowly into the cockpit with serviceable efficiency that is still nowhere near graceful.  The tiny craft reminded me simultaneously […]

  • Broken rudder, broken drive shaft – breaking WITHiN in.

    I picked Jordan up from the airport on Friday night and we headed directly to the bar for dinner and a couple of beers. He’s a great guy and we get along very well. That is a good thing when two strangers are about to be locked into a 20 foot x 3 foot capsule […]

    or her own power. I hope to motivate and inspire more people to explore their own

  • If I seem a bit reoccupied with form over function these days, I’m not really. Ken and I are working our butts off here trying to get the boat ready for Vancouver island circumnavigation and choosing a paint color, boat name and logo is all part of what needs to be done and it is […]

  • Painted!

    Well – here she is all freshly painted. FINALLY. Ken and I hauled the boat to U-wrench in Calgary where we rented their paint booth for a few hours. Typical of the kind of good luck that seems to follow this project around, when Ken was in the auto body supply shop asking questions about […]

  • Hey everyone. Not much to report aside from my training is going fairly well – just plugging away at the training program my coach Jason Yanota made up for me. The riding is all inside on the mag trainer which, for shorter-harder workouts, isn’t so bad. I’ve been in dental hell since getting a pile […]

  • Critical Power in the 2009 Guinness Book

    Man, it’s been a while since I’ve blogged… I’ve been busy and I guess there just hasn’t been much news of interest to report. Until just now. It seems that the 24 hour human powered vehicle record from 2006 in Eureka, CA was picked up by the editors of the 2009 edition of the Guinness […]
