Favorite Quote: “Hold fast to dreams for if dreams die, life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly.” – Langston Hughes

“I went on this expedition because I wanted test myself mentally and physically like never before. I also haven’t traveled before this journey and it has been one of my dreams to see the world when I was young so I could climb mountains, jump off waterfalls, surf endless waves and spend my youth living instead of working it away. I have had many different career options and so far and non of them have appealed to me. I’ve always had an unsettled soul in search of great adventure. Maybe someday I will be able to settle down, but for now, I’m a wanderer, explorer, in love with the world and I want to experience life in a way that I have always dreamed.”


I am going to be returning to Destiny in the Fall of 2016 to rebuild the decks and repair my motor. My plan is to be finished with repairs by December and then set off to explore the Sea of Cortez. If you’re interested in lending a hand this fall with the boat in the yard or helping me sail it this winter, send me over an email to and maybe we can work something out.

Thanks – Tyler
