There is an adventure at every stop of of this sailing trip.  Some on land and some on sea.  This episode covers both.  There is trouble off the coast of Venezuela in the form of a big ship with suspicious activity and a run on Panama led to a spooky, undisclosed location.  So far, everything isn't as it seems and we haven't even gotten to the Pacific yet, until the end of this show. Enjoy this episode of Voyage Into Hell.

Today we record in the middle of nowhere, West Virginia.  Nothing is as good or as bad as it seems.  We give a few personal examples.  Scott shares 5 cases for podcasting if you were on the fence. You might not expect the main benefit but it is just that.  A stellar lasagna recipe we found that happens to be gluten free and an amazing adventure just completed in the Amazon.
