Check out the new article titled “The Odd Sea” — weird stuff seems to happen to me when on the ocean. Since I blew my travel spending budget in 2010 (Italy, Turks and Caicos, and St. John), I’m staying close to home for the next year. But when home is New England that’s not too bad. I’ll be on Cape Cod Bay fishing for stripers then up in Vermont kayaking the White River in search of trout. I’ve also really enjoyed giving the Overboard slide presentation — people have been saying that’s my best one, that the slides put you in the middle of the storm, wondering “what would I do in that situation.” If you would like to see the program just go on my website and click upcoming presentations. The presentation also offers some practical tips from survivors on how they view life after their rescue. They have all learned to appreciate the little things that most people take for granted, so I’ve tried to incorporate that mindset into my own life.
