I’m Ryan Leighton, a journalist from Boothbay, Maine, and I’m stowing away aboard the Charles W. Morgan during the ship’s historic 38th Voyage. One of the main reasons I wanted to become the stowaway is because it is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Sometimes the most satisfying feeling is not knowing what tomorrow will bring. Typically, stowaways are forced to remain hidden below deck, but with this opportunity, I’m able to take part in the daily routine of the ship. Throughout the voyage, I will take chances, be creative, and fully immerse myself so that others are able to live vicariously through my videos and stories. I hope you follow the journey.
