This will be my last post, and I’ll be shutting down the site soon. I’ve just signed a listing agreement to sell Sparklemuffin.
This journey did not unfold the way I’d imagined. I never intended to do it solo, and underestimated the challenge of finding a compatible kindred spirit & adventure buddy willing to join. And I see no sign that will change. It’s time to move on.
That’s ok. I have no regrets… I’ve had some incredible one-of-a-kind experiences. It would have been worse to never try, and always wonder “what if.”
I will sail from French Polynesia to Hawaii in April, sell Sparklemuffin there, and fly back to the US. What comes after that? I have no idea.
Thank you all for going with me in spirit. Your many encouragements along the way have kept me going.
It will sound cliché, but if there’s one take-away, it’s this: follow your dream. Nothing can go “wrong.” There is only learning. Each day is an opportunity for growth.
Warm wishes, and hope to see you again some day!
