Thanks to TWiT, I found out about this amazing woman, Roz Savage, who is attempting to row solo across the Pacific Ocean. That's solo, as in, without even a follow/support boat in case things get really bad.
Maybe I'm just a sucker for things like this, watching people do things I can't even fathom. Or maybe it's that I feel a sort of kinship with people like this, even though my adventurous life has been slowed down a bit by injury and my career (I'll fully admit I'm not brave enough to quit my job and just do something like this). She's already rowed across the Atlantic Ocean in 2006.
Anyway, I've been following along on her blog and on Twitter, and listening to the podcasts that are being recorded when Leo Laporte (chief TWiT) calls her 3 times a week. I thought others here might be interested.
