JOHN GUIDER: Barebones Cruiser With a Camera

John Guider photo

Beautiful photos these. Taken by a man, John Guider, who is currently rowing and sailing his way, in stages, through a circumnavigation of eastern North America aboard a 14-foot Expedition Skerry from Chesapeake Light Craft that he built himself. Right now he's in the South Carolina sea islands, a little north of Beaufort. By July he expects to be in New York City.

John, an engineer from Nashville, Tennessee, first started mucking around in boats in a big way back in 2003, when he paddled down to New Orleans from the creek in his backyard in a common canoe, snapping pix the whole way. He moved up to the skerry in 2008 and started out on his Great Loop the following year and is still creating amazing photos.

You should also click on over to his website, where you can follow his voyage, see lots more pix, buy some if you like, and order a copy of his book, The River Inside.

These last two photos of John are by Dave from Drift Away, who gets credit for turning me on to John and his art.
