More Description

Who hasn't daydreamed about chucking it all and sailing away on a boat to warmer climes, "far from the madding crowd's ignoble strife." John and Jane did just that. This true sailing adventure is told in the first person. It began as an idea and unfolded into a rich and fulfilling dream come true. A lifelong obsession of escape materialized in 1972 with the building and launching of their dreamboat Dursmirg. John and Jane went over the horizon and out to sea on a voyage of escape. Departing Duluth-Superior on the western terminus of the St. Lawrence, they crossed the Great Lakes, the Erie Canal and Hudson River to New York City. The motivations and inspirations for this five year plan of escape was hastened by the revelation that youth only comes to you one time. Procrastination scuttles many a dreamboat. It was an enchanting journey, and in more than one place they felt tempted to stay. But there was always the thought of Florida driving them on. Arriving in a fairyland, destiny planted them in St. Augustine. The book is recommended for all free spirited dreamers that have the drive and desire to live life to the fullest. This book was originally published as Travels of Dursmirg: Volume 1 in 2010. It has been updated and upgraded with a totally new format. In 2012 it was republished under the title: Sailing Beyond Lake Superior: Travels of Dursmirg.
