Love the Oceans? Help an Ocean Rower!

As many of you know, I've been following the adventures of Roz Savage, a British ocean rower and environmental campaigner who has rowed solo across both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and is now in the middle of the Indian Ocean!

She blogs on a regular basis to let us all know of her progress. Sending these blogs over a satellite phone costs money, and that's just one component of her row. How does she do it? She does it with the help of people like me and you.

You can sponsor her for only $10/mile. 100% of the money goes to the row. When she rows your mile (or miles) she gives you a shout out on her blog! She rowed my miles today and I must say it's a very easy way for me to feel like I've helped her spread her environmental message.

All those warm fuzzy feelings and the opportunity to follow along on her ocean adventure? Don't miss out...

Virtual Segway Tour with Miss K

Have you always wanted to take my segway tour in San Francisco but still haven't made it yet?

Well now you have a way. A very lovely German couple who came on the tour last week had a camera attached to their segway that took a photo every 10 seconds. They had it running for the entire tour, resulting in a 21 minute video.

Yes, it makes my hand gestures look more spastic than normal. Yes, I am wearing the men's XL raincoat which I refer to as my "big yellow dress". Yes, it is silent and there are some moments when the segway is parked looking at nothing special, but you know what? This is as good as it's going to get unless you get out here and take a tour. [hint]

Enjoy - just don't have an epileptic seizure on my account: 3 Hour Tour, 10 Seconds at a Time
