OUR AMERICAN SPIRIT
A GOD GIVEN GIFT TO AN AMAZING PEOPLE
Born to it, yet rarely celebrate it.
Live it, while millions have died for it.
Take it for granted while others strive for it.
More precious than gold, but we can’t buy it.
Join us in our search for it!

Only In America 2011
Norfolk to Boston, 2011
On June 3rd, we climbed aboard our 19-foot Boston Whaler, powered by our 150 HP Mercury outboard, and embarked on a 1,400 mile voyage, from Norfolk to Boston, In Search Of The American Spirit.
Our journey was prompted by the many e-mails we received asking, "Do you think the friendly, generous and welcoming America you discovered in 1987, described in your book Only In America: An American Boating Adventure, still exists today?" Stunned and shaken by this response, we decided to find out!
For 30 days an eclectic crew of individuals, from all over the country, battled storms, rough seas, sand bars, low bridges, bugs (the bugs, my God!) and 1,400 miles of American waterways to make it to Boston in time for the 4th of July. And, we filmed it.
We accumulated over 400 hours of amazing video: The elements, the crew, the beauty and the people, oh my! Our search introduced us to extraordinary Americans with incredible stories to tell.
As for the friends we met along the way, it is difficult to say thank you to so many for so much. Ours was an experience of a lifetime, all made possible by our fellow Americans. . . . Only In America!
