Fight Against Maturity

Roz Savage, rower, and person extraordinaire

This lovely lady is Roz Savage, writer, speaker and rower extraordinaire, whose location¬† at 2130, 29th July Pacific Time, 0430 30th July UTC was 24 01.189’N, 139 02.119’W. That’s halfway, almost, between her starting point at San Francisco and her first stop at Hawaii on her way to Australia. “So what?”, you say? Here’s what: she’s rowing a 23 foot boat.

I just discovered Roz on TWiT about a week ago and have been following her both there and on her own blog since. Check her adventures out at these links:

In case you wonder what an ocean-going rowboat looks like, here’s a picture:

Oh. Did I mention she has also rowed the Atlantic? That picture of the boat was taken on that row.
