Ever Wonder how you could get paid to go camping, mountain climbing, and off roading? My Friend Christian Tambley has been doing this for years, and you can find out about his exciting lifestyle of exploration on his really beautiful new website, Campoalto.cl

Kris Scheppe wants to sail around the world, dispite the fact that he's legally Blind. I call that an adventurous spirit!
But I already knew that Kris had Exploration in mind when he came aboard the RV Discoverer as a crew member years ago. His disability didnt stop him from working as a diver ( hull cleaning too!) and equipment technician, plus his specialty, IT.
Before long Kris had launched his own project, Blind Circumnavigation, and has been working doggedly to make that happen since.
Dispite his busy schedule running his own tech bisuness, Kris still finds time to help us out by managing our social media for this site, which is greatly appreciated!

On the surface, Garrett Hayes looks like a nice guy, probably because he is one.
But his video production company, Firm Kick Productions, promises to give you a firm kick (e.g.in the seat of the pants), to help you get your project started.
It worked for me. This blog was Garretts suggestion, and wouldn't exist if he hadn't encouraged me.
Thanks Garrett. Ow!
In the future, Roving Data Buoys as big as islands will sail autonomously through troubled oceans, driven by new sail technology, powered by natural forces, cleaning and revitalizing ocean dead zones and creating habitat that nurtures sea life while communicating data back to land via satellite on the state of our seas.
And I want to build the first one...
My Name is Eric and My Job is Scientific Exploration.
That means I'm lucky enough to join expeditions to excavate sunken cities, climb volcanoes, find missing bombs, and Sail old research vessels, while searching for the mysteries of the natural world.
