I've lived on a boat in Mexico for three years. In that time I've sailed every mile of Mexico's west coast, much of it following the 16th-century conquistador that discovered California. Essays on some of my travels can be read in the days section of this website. These essays set up some of the first-draft foundations and research is now going into finalizing the project.
