Circumnavigation Blogs?

Hey guys, my name is Mike. I've been lurking in this forum for a while, but I figured I would join to ask a question, or rather a favor.

Could you guys like me to any and as many circumnavigation blogs you know about? I love reading them and following along with the destinations and experience.

It's just something that I find very interesting and hope to do someday, but I'm still a university student, so I don't see it happening soon.

I have found a few through Google, but it's hard to find them, especially if they don't get much traffic. Maybe some members here have their own?

Thanks

I had a whole list of them before my computer crashed.

Out Of Bounds is an old one, but a VERY well documented site.

SCUD - a St. Francid 44 cat (just like ours!)

Ocelot - also a catamaran with kids

Bumfuzzle - young couple on a cat

s/v Faith - monohull this time

And kudos to Maxing Out above, I loved following their adventures and seeing their excellent videos!

TAWODI, sailing from San Diego, California and crewed by Kathleen Torres and Stephen Mann, are within days of completing an eight month circumnavigation. Their journey has been well documented on their weblog: Tawodi Sailing Adventures. Their route, south from San Diego to Easter Island, then eastward through the Southern Ocean with stops in remote, as well as famous, places, has been elegantly described by Kathleen, a truly gifted writer and observer. Many of us in San Diego are thrilled that they have achieved such an adventure. Anyone wanting a good read will readily agree that this is something special. Storms, icebergs, gear failures and occasional terror are balanced by extraordinary beauty, the generosity of locals, and the opportunity to have had an adventure of this magnitude at least once in their lives. I think their voyage is one of the more inspirational tales I've ever heard, and all of it true. For those contemplating a quest, it would be hard to find a better primer than the circumnavigation by TAWODI.

I really love a lot of these blogs and the information and excitement they provide. However, I've made a promise to myself...

If I ever start a blog I'm going to refrain from:
1. Political commentary no matter how strongly I feel about things domestically or internationally or how they interact.
2. Harping on environmental issues. Thats Discovery channel, NASA, and Al Gore's job.
3. Bringing the limelight to people that cast negativity on the adventure itself.
4. Taking our specific case-in-point adventures and then advocating our way as a policy for everyone based on them alone.

Our website isn't a blog per say, its a website

And it doesn’t have a daily narrative, just what we are doing and some nice photos.

We don't really mean to inform... we just want to make you land-locked bums jealous
