    I tried to write to you but don’t know if you got it.  Is this a live email.  I think it bounced back to me.


    I tried to pledge on line but it asked for my email password, which it did not seem appropriate to give.


    If you get this, can you reserve one book for me and bill me directly.

    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...

    Thank 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.

    As always, I'm so glad to be a part of the Voyager community and hope to see many of you at the reunion on the 17th.


    Lesley, have a wonderful time in the Azores. I've never been there, but I am very jealous of your upcoming whale adventures.

    I have pledged too. Looks wonderful. 


    A second thing - I am off to the Azores this morning ex UK. Flying to Terceira then sailing on a friend's yacht - we will hopefully get to Horta and Faial as well. I am hoping to see whales! If anyone has any tips for Azores etc please email me! 


    Sorry I will miss 17th May

    Best wishes

    Hello Voyagers!

    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!!!!!!!
