We use the Adventuress as a metaphor for our planet: a closed system that requires understanding and care, and sails best when all aboard are working together.

Our focus is education because we believe that people will protect what they learn to value. As they voyage through the Puget Sound basin, Sound Experience participants are encouraged to realize that their daily actions make a difference. And they respond with a growing spirit of cooperation, community, stewardship and responsibility.

The 2009 Remodeled Homes Tour & Benefit is happening in Seattle this weekend, sponsored by the Master Builders Association. Thanks to Mike Vacirca, President of Lastingnest and former crew member aboard Adventuress, Sound Experience is the nonprofit organization featured at Home #7 (a Built Green remodel) on the tour and will be the recipient of any donations given at that house by visitors.

The Remodeled Homes Tour and Benefit is on Sat., Oct. 17th and Sun., Oct. 18th from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Seattle. Admission is free. Visit for details. "Passports" with directions to homes are available at the Tour or at any Dunn Lumber location.

Adventuress and Sound Experience make the place we live real to the folks who feel the breeze on their cheek translate into the pull of the sails. I've seen the beauty of this connection change people's lives, help them put together that simple idea of connectedness from which all else springs forth. It's an honor to do what I can to help that along. --Michael Vacirca, President, Lastingnest, Inc.

Our thanks to Mike and Lastingnest for such great support of Sound Experience and Adventuress!
