WOW! 53-yr.-old paraplegic grandmother rowing solo from Santa Cruz to Hawaii

It will take her 80 days if she makes it.  My god, what an undertaking!  What a woman--absolutely fearless!  I wish her all the BEST!  I will be thinking of her every day during this journey, and sending encouragement with prayers.  What a courageous (foolish, without help?) thing to do!  But she has been through a lot in life, and seems to be like steel strengthened through forging by fire.  I have to say, with some embarrassment, that this is a kind of pioneer spirit I have very little of.
