Well LinkedIn......As I have my U.S. Coast Guard Captain's License, I'll be at the helm once again....And........it's time to paddle across the open ocean, 84 miles from Bimini Bahamas to Lake Worth Florida !!!

We start in the middle of the night (0001) on Sunday June 23, and make our way through the night on PADDLE BOARDS - Yep, Paddling. See the route below from last year.

This year we have Dr. Ivette Cardelli, her husband Damien, our crew member Ada from last year who is now paddling, and new to the team is Dr. John Calhoun, a thorastic surgeon. 

Below are a few pictures of me, our team, one of the major sponsors for the event (Celcius), and pictures from the crossing last year....

Here is what its like to paddle offshore of Bimini in the middle of the night !!!

 

 

 

Hello ALL....

We are now less than 30 days until we head to Bimini.

Please take a few moments and go to the donation website and give what you can for this event.

this year, we are heading over on Sunday the 16th with my buddy Robert who is donating his 30 foot contender as the official boat for the event.

We will be fishing from Monday to Wednesday and then the rest of the team arrives on Thursday for the Crossing Events.

We leave for Florida on Saturday night (0001) - Sunday and begin our trek.

We have a team of 4.  My daughter, Dr. Ivette, her Husband, Ada our crew from last year, and Ivette's friend Dr. John a thorastic surgeon.

We pay all our own expenses and every dollar you donate is used for the crossing fund raising.

Anyone who donates over $200 will receive a photo of either a pelican or dragonfly.  I will print it and mail it to you.  If you want a photo of you and a fish or family, I'll work with you on this as well.

If you have ever been short of breath from a run or long walk, imagine what that is like from the moment you get up until you go to sleep at night.....and combine this with having mucous drained from your lungs all day.....this is why we are doing this.....

thanking you in advance.....

 

DC

Updated For Ralph and his generous donation to the crossing.

 

I have a profession EPSON 7500 12 color printer

I created some family and memory pics for Ralph...

I can print up to 24x36 or 48 or 72" .....it's a $6K printer loaded

If anyone is interested in some custom prints....let me know

The work I did for Ralph was off iPhone pics....very low resolution...less than 500K Jpgs....I normally work in 24-36MB RAWS where the detail is significantly different

But, they came out nice for Ralph....

 

Here are the prints that I will then cut to size

In light room processing........

 

Here is the prints on the Premium Luster Paper

Ralph's favorite spot...so he told me....great shot of Bahia Honda

 

16x20 for the man cave....or Crik House
