Today marks the 1/2 waypoint for Reid Stowe on his 1000 Days at Sea – Mars Ocean Odyssey. I’ve previously written about this adventure here. Friends were invited to a party tonight at Pier 66 in Manhattan to celebrate this major milestone. I bet it was an interesting event. Hopefully somebody will report back to us via a comment. Thanks to Bonnie at frogma for bringing this to our attention.
Roz Savage arrived in Hawaii completing her first leg in rowing across the Pacific Ocean on Sunday, September 1st. There were times when it seemed like she may never lose sight of the California coast but she is nothing if not determined. I’ve written about her adventures here.
And determination seems to be something that Stowe is not short of either!
It’s easy to sit back and think that both of these individuals, and others who undertake similar gargantuan challenges are bit crazy but the fact of the matter is that they are pushing human endurance to points that are incomprehensible to the average person. 500 days at sea, the majority alone; 99 days rowing alone across the Pacific. Eccentric and amazing accomplishments to both of these modern maritime adventurers.
Godspeed for the next 500+ days and 5,000+/- nautical miles!
