Re: Whatever hapened to

I thought it was rather interesting.

He seems to be close to the son he procreated while on the voyage.
Clip from his return home.


Rather fine accomplishment I think.


This one from a stand by watching. no music
He caught a lot of flack for this. But I didn't see anyone else doing it.

Ok, I admit I didn't read his whole site (or anything close to it) but what was it that made him catch flack? Not something I would want to do (stay at sea for 1000 days) but to each his own. Or is there some seamy underbelly to this that I really don't want to know about?

Re: Whatever hapened to

There were a number of allegations against him regarding failure to to pay child support plus he was busted for a pretty dope importing syndicate. Nothing major but somewhat unsavoury.

Then there was this ....



Unforgiveable.
