Tom Gauthier, Author

In September 1996 young Benjamin Wade set out on a solo voyage in a tiny kayak. The chance discovery of his journals, buried on a Colombian cliff above the se, uncovered a mystery which took many years to solve. His journals tell of misery and elation, of triumph and failure, and of insight and insanity.

A Voyage Beyond Reason
It Took Him on a Personal Search for the Meaning of His Life That Soon Turned Into A Struggle for His Very Survival. Matching Young Muscles to an OldSea, and a Young Mind to Old Sources of Madness, Survival Will Be the Least Victory He Will Gain From This Quest.
A young man finds his dreams at a dead end, his life going nowhere near where he’d planned it would be by now. Finally, the death of a beloved grandfather spins his world in a tighter and tighter circle, until he is driven to a pinprick of light that he grasps and weaves into a plan for a singular, spectacular, survival driven quest. This quest will become his path to redirecting his life, his values, his spiritual beliefs, and his will to go it alone – if he lives through it.
With the purchase of an eighteen foot kayak, twenty four year old Ben Wade and his equally young friend Christian begin to plan for his needs that will sustain him on a voyage of six thousand miles – beginning at the head
Ben Wade struggled between a bravado filled defense of his plan, and the nearly unanimous doubt and fear expressed by those he cared for. But there was no turning back for Ben. No one could fully understand the depth of the need that was rooted in his soul. Superficial fear was not enough to deter his single focus on his quest.
Further complicating his singular purpose is a beautiful young lady that burst into his life only a few weeks before he waded into the sea – and his destiny.
Six Months after he launched into the Sea of Cortez, not looking back to those who prayed on the sandy shore, his hand written, stained and tattered journals were found buried at the head of a steep slope overlooking the Pacific Ocean – in Colombia, South America . . .
