A Problemo with our Motto

(Cabo Rojo, Dominican Republic) Uggggghhhhhhhhhh. Again there is little I want to talk about regarding the journey east. Tacking in the choppy sea is not fun. It’s hard on the boat, and it’s hard on the people on the boat. I will say this though – I feel like I should make an infomercial for […]

Philip’s Advice
