Here's a little update from David de Rothschild and our friends working on the Plastiki. Their departure date is now schedule for late April or early May. Stay tuned for updates from our Plastiki correspondent.
Until then, learn about this incredible (dangerous, foolish, and innovative) expedition on the very cool Adventure Ecology website.
David de Rothschild, a National Geographic Emerging Explorer and founder of Adventure Ecology, will depart in Spring 2009 on a 7,500-mile voyage from San Francisco to Sydney (see the route map) in a boat made of plastic bottles. Find out more about the expedition in a feature article by Contributing Editor Paul Kvinta ("Voyage of the Plastiki," October 2008 issue of ADVENTURE). Check in here for de Rothschild's dispatches.
