EXIT ONLY SAILS AROUND THE WORLD

HOW EXIT ONLY GOT HER NAME

Over the years. quite a few folks have asked us where we came up with name "Exit Only" for our catamaran.

This is the way it happened. While I was working in Saudi Arabia, whenever we went on vacation, we had to obtain an Exit-Reentry visa in order to make the trip. The Exit visa got us out of the country, and the Reentry visa got us back in to resume our work.

There was a special type of visa for people who were leaving the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and not coming back. Those folks received an Exit Only visa. Once you went Exit Only, your work in the Magic Kingdom was over, and you were on a one way ticket to some place other than there.

I worked for eleven years in Arabia, always traveling on my Exit-Reentry visas. Finally, at the end of the eleventh year, it was time to sail on the ocean of my dreams, and so I got an Exit Only visa and went sailing on Exit Only around the world.


Going Exit Only on board Exit Only was a liberating experience. The scraping, scrounging, and saving were over, and it was time to live my dreams.

Exit Only proved to be a good name. It constantly reminded me that my old life was gone, and that I wasn't going back. It was time to move forward into new territory. I had a new life, and I was a new person. I was now Captain Dave, Master and Commander of Exit Only, and it was time for 50,000 miles of global adventure.

Captain Save Our Souls

Awesome music video that captures the essence of what it's like to sail offshore in a catamaran around the world when conditions are less than perfect. David Abbott from Too Many Drummers sings the vocals, and he also edited the footage from our Red Sea adventures. This is the theme song from the Red Sea Chronicles.


Red Sea Blues

Sailing up the Red Sea is not for the faint of heart. From the Bab al Mandeb to the Suez Canal, adventures and adversity are in abundance. If you take things too seriously, you just might get the Red Sea Blues.

If you like drum beats, and you like adventure, then have a listen to the Red Sea Chronicles Trailer.



Red Sea Chronicles Episode 1 - When Flying Fish Attack

Flying fish assault Exit Only in the middle of the night as we sail through the Arabian Gulf from the Maldives to Oman. And so begins our Red Sea adventures.


Red Sea Chronicles Episode 2 - Pirate Alley

Sailing through Pirate Alley between Yemen and Somalia involves calculated risk. It may not be Russian Roulette, but it is a bit of a worry. Follow Team Maxing Out as they navigate through Pirate Alley.


Red Sea Chronicles Episode 3 - Aden, Yemen

Stopping in Yemen was just what the doctor ordered. We refueled, repaired our alternator, and we made friends with our gracious Yemeni hosts. We also went to Baskins Robbins as a reward for surviving Pirate Alley.


Red Sea Chronicles Episode 4- Gate of Sorrows and Sandstorms

After you survive Pirate Alley, you must sail through the Gate of Sorrows (Bab Al Mandab) at the southern entrance to the Red Sea. The Gate of Sorrows lived up to its name with fifty knots of wind and a sandstorm that pummeled Exit Only for two days. Life is good.

Ebooks are less expensive and have no negative impact on the environment. All of Dr. Dave's books are available at Save A Tree Bookstore. Visit the bookstore today and start putting good things into your mind. It's easy to fill your mind with positive things using eBooks. No matter where you are or what you are doing, you can pull out your smart phone or tablet and start reading. You can even use electronic highlighters and make annotations in your eBooks just like paper books.
