Thank you everyone who backed the project! It's currently 110% funded with 3 days to go. If you're interested in a book, you've got time to get one.
Again, many thanks for everyone's support and I can't wait to get the books out.

Ger, I just sent in a pledge--best of luck finishing off the project--and it looks like you're over the top! I'll be sorry to miss the reunion--would have been fun to meet voyagers from the other legs of the trip...Matt BullardOn Fri, May 8, 2015 at 11:16 AM, Ger Tysk <NoReply_GerTysk@fer3.com> wrote:GerThank you Frank, Susan, Lesley, and everyone else who has pledged! I'm 95% funded, with only $168 to go, which is amazingly exciting. There are still 7 days left to pledge, so if you haven't pledged, you have time to chip in for a book even after the project is 100% funded. I'll have a few new photos from my upcoming final book draft this afternoon, and I posted another update yesterday with more photos.

Hope your projects are going well so far. I'm writing about my own Voyager project, a photography book/biography about the life of John Manjiro, the first Japanese person to live in America. He came to Fairhaven, Mass aboard the whaleship John Howland, and my voyage aboard the Morgan was to collect material and photographs for this book. He later returned to Japan and was instrumental in the opening of Japan to the West.
I'm funding the book's publication through Kickstarter, and I'd be grateful if you could visit the page and share the link. Thank you!!!!!!!
