so, by blathering back and forth..... are we collectively trying to get to 300 posts? 'cause, otherwise, this is as pointless as the attempt.


Had 300 by the time she reached Cabo San Lucas

See above - so how many people have flown into space and how many have done solo RTW?
This is going to be truly a work of fiction...

Sigh...


Yeah that's actually right

5 Apr 2010 ... In all, 54 women have flown in space out of the 517 people who have reached orbit


And This guy keeps a list and Alessandro Di Benedetto made it in position 176.

Interesting list - and not too sure how you get onto it. Does it include just the non stop solo attempts?
For example, I didn't see Zac Sunderland on there. He did RTW with lots of stops and assistance.

I think the RTW list is missing a heap of names, not that it matters a lot in the grand scheme of things.

Read the description above the list Jerry, specifically, no Suez or Panama Canals . Zac doesn't qualify.

Good point, thanks - I suspect that the Abby book
got delayed because the ghost author was pulled into the higher
priority task of ghosting Saran Palin's book #2 which comes out next week.

or the Ghost author realised that there isn't enough to work with.

Hello Everyone! Hope all is well and enjoying Abby's travels and escapades.. Posted Image


I wanted to share a few things... For one, I coach my daughter in soccer and encountered Larry on the soccer field... My game had just ended and I turned around to see Larry standing right in front of me... Posted Image He looked like he had seen a ghost! I said, "hi (beat, beat) lawrence" , he simply grinned and said "good day mate". He then walked away and kept looking back at me, with an odd stare... Posted Image I later realized that one of his daughter's was in the same division as mine... We were scheduled to play the last game of the season. I was soo looking forward to it, as my team was winning by more than 5 goals in every game we played.. I could just imagine, the joy of seeing Larry and Mary on the other side of the field. Well, I guess it was "God's Will" because the game got rained out... Posted Image

FYI, I saw Larry and the Family there a couple times after that, our kids played on the same field. Abby looked like she had gained a few pounds, to say the least. I'm still confused on how she gained all that weight out at sea...

Anyway, truly amazing all the followers who get "drawn in by the wells of deep water". I occasionally get messages from "Sunderland" trolls from time to time.. http://www.facebook....57&id=757747937
