Tuesday, February 23rd. The official Debut of “SoloMan”

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016

It’s been a long hard struggle to put both the Dutch and English version together.

I hope you will enjoy sharing the adventure with me.

All the details of the book, prices, versions, e-book, color and black and white can be found on the book’s web site:

www.SoloMan.us for the English book and http://www.SoloMan.nl for the Dutch version.

There are some excerpts from the book and a peek into the interior lay out and photographs, on the web sites.

The nine year solo circumnavigation. For full details go to the book's website. www.SoloMan.us en voor de Nederlandse versie: www.SoloMan.nl

This  is another self publishing effort and I will appreciate you sharing this with your friends.

If you are in my area you can obtain the book directly from me as I will carry a supply on the boat. I am also very much interested to give presentations with my slide shows of the adventure, to your clubs/organizations.

I still plan to leave for the Panama Canal this August. I have exactly 1 year and 5 days to make my deadline of the circumnavigation within 80 years.

I am still staying with Lisa and Harry in Fife and I am exploring the possibility of making a short trip to Holland to promote the book at the end of March.



Monday February 8. The Fire Monkey

Monday, February 8th, 2016

To all my East Asian Friends :


This will be a busy week, today first day of the Lunar New Year. Tomorrow Mardi Gras, Wednesday Ash Wednesday and it looks like I will have the publication announcement of SoloMan, before the week is done. I am currently uploading the different versions, paper back in color and black and white to Create Space and Bol.com in Dutch and English and the E-book to Amazon Kindle and a Dutch E-book.

We have had some extraordinary sun rises over Mt. Rainier and the Cascade mountains. I have a great view from where I am staying since I returned from Virginia, at Lisa and Harry’s home in Fife. I am dying to go skiing on a day like yesterday and today. Sunny and cool enough for the right snow conditions and we have some of the best snow here we have had in years.
