Mule Polly and me during the New Mexican phase of the Lost Sea Expedition, our wagon voyage across America. Looking back on it now, I’m sure Polly wondered why I kept stopping and taking pictures like this one. She was right to wonder. That footage – including lots of interviews with folks met along the way – is now the Lost Sea Expedition TV series. (Hope, NM)

I’ve sailed alone around the world, been across America twice by mule and then some. But hands down, this is the biggest project I’ve ever completed. Call it a project a long time in the coming.

Here’s a sneak peak at the Lost Sea Expedition TV series.

Windora

There’s a saying among Southern Ocean sailors. “Below 40, there is no Law. Below 50, there is no God.” It’s a bo-ho line to use down at Ye Olde Yachte Clube when it’s raining outside and you want to lay some salty lingo on a dirt digger.

But damn, here I was in hurricane force winds and snow. At Latitude 54 South. On the Antarctic island of South Georgia. Standing on “Windora” as she threatened to pound herself to splinters on a Southern Ocean rock.

The Falklands have a hell of a lot more birds, sea lions and fur seals than humans. These three king penguins saw us off on our Southern Ocean voyage. I am sailing aboard the wood ketch anchored off the beach.

The day has come to put to sea. Tomorrow two New Zealand friends and I sail from the Falklands to South Georgia. It may be a while until you hear from me.

It’s shearing time in the Falklands. Here, a shearer tackles a double fleecer. No, it’s not worth twice as much. Read on for why.

The past weeks, I’ve been in the Falkland Islands helping my friends at shearing time. This means mustering sheep, packing wool in to a press and shooing the occasional jack ass penguin out from under the Land Rover.

bernie harbers south georgia paddle row boat
A farmer prepares for sea. Between voyages, I live on my farm. I just learned I’m going on a boat voyage. I’m starting to train. I’m using what I have on hand. I use this dinghy to cover my mule hay. Substitution is key – the ax and orange hunting vest are stand ins for paddle and life jacket

Why am I using an ax to paddle a rowboat perched on a bale of hay? Because I’m preparing to travel to South Georgia by boat. Think penguins, not Jimmy Carter.
