Roz Savage is the FIRST woman to row across the Pacific Ocean (3 June 2010). She has also rowed solo across the Atlantic Ocean in 2005. She is only the SIXTH woman to gain that honor. She is an author, an inspirational speaker, as well as a proponent for ecology and sustainability. She is featured in the 2010 Banff Mountain Film Festival and is a prime contender for National Geographic Adventurer of the Year Award 2010.
Her message is simple and clear... Hope, Dreams, Adventure and Ecology.
Roz will be in the San Francisco Bay Area 26 September to 3 October 2010. She will be touring to fundraise for her Indian Ocean Row.
Below are several links via YouTube that will better describe and introduce you to her.

I got captivated by this story of adventure, dreams and ecology... I started this blog so that I can support Roz while doing what I do best.
Have a wonderful time adventuring!
