Mostly, I think I just deal. I have a basic first-aid kit on board for minor things, and then a small arsenal of supplies for more pointed needs (eg malaria pills, amoxycillan, etc). Knock on wood, I’ve yet to break anything, but there have been some deep gashes and what have you along the way. I guess I just go to great lengths to make sure I’m exceedingly careful whilst out in the remote bits…
I’m on South Korean TV, I guess!
I’ve yet to actually ask anyone to join me - but, sure, occasionally the thought crosses my mind…

Hey Aussie folks,
For those of you in Melbourne, I’ve got a couple events on this weekend.
Saturday, 23 Aug at 8 PM - THE RADIO HOUR
Sunday, 24 Aug at 4 PM - Emily in conversation with Steve Braunias.
Tickets available at the links above. Come say hi!
The boat - I just bought it super cheap in southern California. I’d been sailing a fair bit solo on my own before this trek, but when I started out (aged 21) I’d just got a little junk boat and took off. Trial by the fire - it’s not for everyone but it’s always served me well…
