About the Crew

We are Jenna Miller and James Utzschneider, and we departed Seattle with our children Leo and Hazel in September 2012 to circumnavigate the world. Nine years and ~80,000 miles later, we returned to Seattle on July 4th, 2021.

We currently live on Seattle’s Lake Union and are planning the next leg of our ongoing adventure cruise.

  1. Wow…. You are finally doing it! The Chan family wishes you well and Faye says if you need any advice on homeschooling front, just FB or email us!

  2. Jenna, Jamie, Leo and Hazel,
    We had a telephone call from Sarah and Terry last night reminding us of this wonderful trip you are experiencing. We have just read all of your blogs and will continue to follow your adventures. What happy memories you are making! We feel like we are the invisible passengers on your cruise. May God bless you and keep you safe.

  3. So great to find out about you today from Don Margraf and to start following your post- we are a family of 8 with 7 of us hoping to leave San Francisco next summer/fall on a catamaran. We arent sure if we’ll do the Pacific spin over a 2year horizon or the Carribean/Central AMerica thing. Really looking forward to spending time on your blog and to send you questions! 🙂

  4. Hi James!
    Last time I’ve talked to Amy, she metioned about this trip and today I’ve found this site. I am amazed with the posts: Tunas, tatoos, 2nd honeymoon…

    Have a GREAT time and memorable moments with your Family and Friends!

    Grande Abraço,
