A quick note re: comments on the blog - keep them coming! We love hearing from distant friends and fam. You can also reach us via email: mike_litzow yahoo.com (you know where to put in the "at" sign!).
On June 23rd, 2007, we left our home in Kodiak, Alaska on board Pelagic, our 25 year old Crealock 37 sailboat. Our ten month old son was with us, and the ruins of our old life smoked in the distance as we sailed away: two good jobs, quit; fanstastic house, sold; most possessions, disposed of.
Three years later, we've made the transition from family of three to family of four. Pelagic is for sale in Tasmania, and we've just bought a new boat in San Francisco, a boat that we hope will carry us wherever we want to go for years to come.
