When tragedy hits home for Seattleite Erden Eruc, he sets out on an unbelievable journey which takes him around the world, alone and using only his own power.

Erden will be honored in New York City in March with a 2013 citation of merit (from the prestigious Explorer s Club). You can also see his boat at the Foss Waterway Seaport Museum in Tacoma when it opens in the spring http://www.fosswaterwayseaport.org/.
