About to launch message #2

About to launch message #2

I’ve always thought that finding a message in a bottle would be an interesting experience.  Unfortunately, since it’s also a rare experience and not one that can be controlled, I decided to go a different route and release one instead.  In fact, during my Atlantic crossing, I released two bottles.

The first was when we were about 1/3 of the way across the Atlantic from Bermuda and the second was when we were adrift at sea @300 miles from the Azores.

In both instances, I enclosed a short note in a wine bottle and chucked it over.  The first note was pretty basic just giving my contact info and our position at the time of release.  The second was a bit more dire and may cause a bit more drama if it is ever found because it mentions that we are adrift at sea and waiting to be rescued.

I don’t know if they’ll ever be found, but even if not, they were fun to send.  If they are found, I hope that they bring a bit of fun into the life of the finder and they take the time to drop me a note.

I will have to see what other chances I have to let a message go as it was, as anticipated, pretty fun. 🙂
