The pressure cooker, the rotating cylinder garden, the pillows, suitcases and travel music are all packed! After almost 4 years in the making, the time has come ~ Plastiki, our favorite plastic bottle boat, is getting set to set sail! "Kick off" is at 9:30 am PST tomorrow: Saturday, March 20th from Sausalito, CA to Sydney, Australia. For those of us on the east coast, that's 12:30 p.m. EST! This 100-day adventure will take to the seas "under San Francisco’s iconic Golden Gate Bridge...on a mission to deliver a global message to beat waste." [Quoted from the Plastiki link mentioned below].
Cheers, kudos, and safe voyage to the crew! Hats off to expedition leader David de Rothschild, skipper Ms. Jo Royle, co-skipper David Thomson, diver Olav Heyerdahl, film maker Vern Moen, & documentary director Max Jourdan. We'll be a-watchin' and sending you good vibes all the way!
