This is my story of healing and exploration while fulfilling a lifelong dream of sailing my own boat to Alaska. Sailing to Alaska is common enough but sailing in a boat you finished yourself is less common. The experience allowed me to grow out of my illness and experience life to a much fuller extent. This story is based on the short email accounts I sent to family and friends while traveling.
