The Quest Eco Challenge has come to a close. We got more than 400 inspiring and absolutely amazing entries from people across the globe who care passionately about the Earth and who have challenged not only themselves but their children and neighbors to live more simple and sustainable lives. Choosing the winners was an almost impossible task, and our judging panel had a very, very hard time ranking the many incredible entries. We used creativity and eco-effectiveness/consciousness as our primary criterion, and the inspiring entries we received made putting some ahead of others almost impossible. In the end though we feel like we’ve decided on four people who have truly gone above and beyond in living an eco-lifestyle. We’ll be sharing these stories and more in the coming weeks and hope to create a dialogue that goes beyond borders and creates a wave of change around the world for years to come. We’ll announce the winners shortly and hope to begin a dialogue on solutions these folks have come up with to make a substantive difference to leading healthier, more rewarding…and more simple lives. Stay tuned!

We’ve got a couple of last-minute trips available to non-members of the Cabrinha Quest. The first is October 26-Nov 5, 2012 in the Los Roques archipelago, off the coast of Venezuela. Those of you who followed the Best Odyssey, this was one of our best stops on the expedition and cannot be missed. For more details go here.
The second is in the San Blas, Panama, one of the windiest and coolest flatwater places there is hands-down. Dates are December 10-20. We have a full cabin and shared cabin available. More details here. Want to join? Give us a jingle.
