Reblog from the Wisdom Journal:
Thirty years ago, Steven Callahan was out alone in his sailboat, the Napoleon Solo, on a voyage across the Atlantic Ocean. Unfortunately his voyage didn’t actually goacross the ocean but instead went horribly wrong when his boat struck an unknown object in a storm (presumably a whale) and sank. The 29 year old Callahan managed to retrieve some supplies from his sinking boat including solar stills, a small amount of food, navigational charts, flares, and a speargun. But with meager supplies, no way to contact anyone, and being located outside of any major shipping channels, his chances of survival were slim … at best.
