About the Blog
Salt and Trail is a blog about running, sailing and hiking in the Pacific Northwest. This blog is a spin off of a bucket list blog that I used to maintain. The vision of this blog is similar but the goals and bucket list items are scaled down to running, sailing and hiking around Western Washington.
About the Author
I’m Mike Barlow. I grew up in the panhandle of Idaho and spent 20 years away from the Pacific/Inland Northwest. During this time we lived in California between the Bay Area and Sacramento.
In 2015 my family and I moved to the Seattle area and since then we have been hiking, running and sailing our way all around Washington State.
About the Boat
Destiny II (Destiny) is a 1969 Shock Santana 37. There were only twenty one of these made by the W.D. Shock Company in Santa Ana California. Destiny is hull number 2. In addition to sailing her around the San Juan Islands we like to do research on her history. When we find it, we publish it on the blog.
