from Peru to Polynesia on a balsa raft

by Sister on Jul 14, 2007

See what can be done with some balsa wood and a lot of dedication. Take a cruise across the Pacific from Peru to Polynesia that proves a previously scorned theory that the peoples of the Pacific isles came from the Americas. This 100 day adventure will teach you about the sea and the power of blessings. Set sail with the international crew of six!


THE epic journey of the 20th century

by jeffrylunch on Apr 8, 2007

It would be hard to estimate the impact of this story on the imaginations of many an adventurist soul in the 50+ years of its publication. Anthropology meets daring sailing expidition. In an era purporting the sanctity of the scientist's laboratory as ultimate authority, Thor Heyerdahl and his scandinavian crew give life to his dream and prove that the larger world is the laboratory we live in. This account of 103 day crossing the Pacific ocean on a balsa-log raft is a must read, not just for adventurists or sailors, but for anyone with a dream.
