Coming to the end of this blog

Well, I am sorry it took so long time to publish the last photos. I have spent the last few days just winding down. This has been a great trip for me, and I couldn't have made it without my fellow crewmembers, and since I only had two, you all know who they are. Thanks Håkan and Jenny! Maiken proved to be a great boat, and I hope to take good care of her in the future. Thanks for reading this blog and follow our way across the Pacific, and if you need to contact me you can always reach me on my email; fredrikfransson@yahoo.com

Take care,

Hej Fredrik!

Fiskegrejerna vi fick av dig har visat sig vara kanon! Kanske berodde det aven pa god fart och bra fiskevatten, men vi har valt att prisa var van Fredrik och den bla blackfisken =)
Kram pa dig!

Hello Fredrik,
I am fascinated by your encounters with the volcanic pumice floating in the water back in August. What an amazing experience. In your blog you made some very helpful observations of the eruption at Home Reef.
I am a volcanologist working for NASA in the US and I have been looking at some satellite images of that area from before and after the recent eruption. I am doing some research on the magnitude of that eruption and, in addition to observations of how tall the eruption cloud was, the aerial distribution of the pumice and the temperature changes in the water will help us determine the characteristics of Home Reef’s renewed activity. It’s also possible that in a few months, if the eruption ends, the island will be eroded by the waves and disappear, as has happened several times in the past. So, you can claim the island as your own, for now. :o)
Anyway, I was wondering if I could quote some of your blog text in a paper I am writing for publication is a science journal. Please email me at greg.vaughan@jpl.nasa.gov as I would love to hear more about what you observed. Thank you very much.

Hello Fredrik,

I published some photos on floating sands in the South Pacific from a circulating email.
It is on my blog :

Someone from the internet pointed out that the source is from this blog. I am unable to find the photos here but I recognise your face from the photo.

In my blog now, I refer to your blog as the source and hope this is OK.

Thanks and regards
