This is Ben Lacompte he is swimming around the world. In 1998 he crossed the Atlantic Ocean. During his 73-day, 3,716-mile (5,980 km; 3,229 nmi) journey, Lecomte was accompanied by a 40-foot (12 m) sailboat that had an electromagnetic field for 25 ft (7.6 m) to ward off sharks. Now he is swimming the Pacific Ocean 8,900 km from Tokyo to San Francisco. He has been stopped twice by tyhoons. After 6 months he just crawled up on a beach in Hawaii this week to spend Christmas on land..

He swims about 40 miles per day which is father than the English Channel. Below is his website you can follow this amazing man on his final push to San Francisco. http://benlecomte.com/
Makes my Alcatraz and Vancouver Island swim seem like childs play!~
A supermoon is like every other full moon except infinitely more powerful. The closer the moon is to the Earth, the more intense are the pull on the tides, as well as well as all of you insticts feelings and complications in life. Its time to forgive and make peace. When a supermoon is combined with a total lunar eclipse, you get one strong cocktail of cosmic forces. An eclipse symbolizes beginnings, endings, culminations, and clean slates.
To benefit from the light, you need to be in a place from where it can shine upon you. It will take out the darker energy from within you and bless you with heavier and brighter energies in life. Your mood will be uplifted, you will feel good, and you will feel at peace.
Thus, the super moon is a very powerful phenomenon of the Divine which appears to help humans in a various way depending on the current state of their existence. You need to let the light of the super moon get into you to let it heal you in ways that you need healing.
November 29th has turned out to be a very significant day in my life.
November 29th, 2013. I buried my mom and dads ashes In Whistler Canada and planted a tree over them.
November 29th, 2016, I cycled up the steepest street in the world for a Guinness record.
November 29th, 2017, I finished my 10 year journey around the World (29,400 km) in Melbourne, Australia.
That same day my good friend Dr Bill died of cancer. I sent a letter out into the sea for him in my memorial.
For some reason the universe caused all these things happened on this very day !
November 29th 2019 will be the most significant of them all.
This is about as far south as the sun sets in winter in this view Stanley Park Vancouver. The sea otters are just amazing to watch hunting along this wall. They go through a small drain pipe under the road to a big hollow tree. Its voted one of the most beautiful parks in the world. The seawall I train on!
Here's the deal. Behind this sign I am pointing to 10,0000 ft up on Haleakala Volcano I taped a Canadian $1.00 gold coin. On the coin is a number in black felt pen and a special note. If within 1 year you cycle up tell me the number I will donate $250 to your charity and take you out for dinner and unlimited drinks.
If you are lazy and drive up I might consider just taking you out for dinner. Yup its legit, treasure map is attached. Good luck!..... ready, set, go.
After 7 hours of non stop climbing reached the 10,000 ft summit of Haleakala. the air in the death zone at 8000 ft was so thin it was hard to breath caused headaches and nausea. The top was like touching the universes edge . Above the clouds so still and quiet among the lava fields.
I will stand on the Haleakala Summit in Maui after grueling a 10,000 ft 32 mile climb into the thin air danger zone above 8,000 ft and hopefully post a smiling picture .
Remembrance Day Nov 11, 2018 at around 12 noon Hawaii time.
If you can kindly donate to:
Thee Maui Hospice (US tax receipt) https://www.hospicemaui.org/donate/
The Vancouver Lung Centre (Canada tax receipt) https://www.thelungcentre.ca/
Or to the Canadian Cancer association through my website here it would be appreciated.
When you see trees in your travels remember, not only are they amazing to look at but they actually communicate with each other. Trees share water and nutrients through the networks, and also use them to communicate. They send distress signals about drought and disease, for example, or insect attacks, and other trees alter their behavior when they receive these messages. I love sitting and sleeping amongst the trees when I travel!
I hope someone plants a cedar tree over my ashes.
Training further inclines Trimble street, Cypress Mountain for Maui attempts of Haleakala summit next month. Have some great support from locals, and some businesses for lung cancer charity. Fundraiser dinner in Lahaina that night. Stay tuned.
