2014 Lowell Thomas Award – Adventure Travel

I won a fancy award for my Outside Magazine feature story. “Tune In, Give Up, Ship Out/Escaping the Recession by Boat”

The judges said nice things.

Down-markets create buying opportunities. Two brothers in recession America knew that and bought a yacht for half price on Craigslist and then tried to sail it around the world. Their story is one of courage and dumb luck, and it is one heck of an entertaining read.
