    Question - "What does having a dream mean to you?"
    Answer - "A dream is a goal glimmering in the distance; it is an inner calling which, when accomplished,
    serves as the rite of passage into wisdom." Erden Eruç - Sep 17, 2004

    Where to follow the Pacific Crossing...

    Erden is loading the rowboat and performing remaining few fixes and configurations. We should tow the rowboat to Crescent City in week or so. The launch will likely be on or after the 20th. He will need a two day weather window when the winds may subside some to safely negotiate Cape Mendocino 80 nm south of there. Until then lee shores will threaten him.

    Please keep an eye on his personal website for announcements. You will find tracking and blog pages there to keep you informed of his daily progress. Instagram and Twitter accounts are @erdeneruc.

    It is our hope that this will be a safe passage.

    Erden will stay true to his educational goals as stated in the mission statement of Around-n-Over during this massive human powered challenge. In partnership with Ocean Recovery Alliance, Erden will highlight the plastics problem in our oceans while ORA will produce a stream of educational content both in English and in Chinese. Erden will also reach classrooms regularly by satellite phone in partnership with Exploring by the Seat of Your Pants.

    Kindly pass on the word for us to reach classrooms, donors and sponsors.
