In this episode of StoryJacker, Lyssa Danehy deHart interviews adventurer, traveler, and speaker, Wendy Hinman, author of Tightwads on the Loose.
Tightwads on the Loose tells the story of Wendy and her husband Garth, lured to sea by the promise of adventure. They buy a 31-foot boat that fits their budget better than it fits Garth’s large frame and set sail for an open-ended voyage, never imagining they’d be gone seven years, or cover 34,000 miles at the pace of a fast walk. They live without most “necessities” and learn that teamwork and a sense of humor matter most as they face endless “character-building opportunities.”
There are really two stories happening, the first is the outward adventure and the the second is the internal adventure. We spend this episode delving into the internal experience and how Wendy was able and willing to leap out of the box and into an adventure.
To find your own copy of Tightwads on the Loose, head over to Wendy’s website, wendyhinman.com or you can find her book on Amazon. Wendy also is a regular speaker at book stores, libraries, boating clubs and at writing conferences. If you have the opportunity to go hear her, take it!
