Update from Chesapeake Station World Cruise

William Thayer guest speakerIt’s been an enlightening journey as we’ve traveled around the world by ship, and I’ve met and heard from fascinating people. Pictured here is William Thayer, guest maritime speaker on board the Pacific Princess ship. He has terrific research on Amelia Earhart, Capt Cook, Drake, Howard Hughes, he was a test pilot for Hughes etc. many historic figures throughout history. Google him.

In the meantime, after sailing north in the Red Sea (without incident) for the past three days, we’ve finally docked in Jordan. Jordan is and continues to be an ally of the U.S. From the starboard side of the ship we can look to our right and see Jerusalem.

The Red Sea shipping channel allows for the unfettered flow of cargo and passenger ships, north and south, from the Gulf of Aden to the Mediterranean Sea.

Warm temperatures (75F to 85F) with intermittent overcast clouds. The glass deck sliders are locked open for an abundance of fresh Salt Sea air.

Construction workers were waving and raising their arms in a gesture of friendship all along the shoreline. Mounds of sand boarder Canal channels that had been dredged during the original Canal construction dating back to 1869.

Surprising to me, The Canal Authority drafted an agreed that all shipping through the Canal would permit passage for both peaceful and wartime transit.

Onboard ship communications were in hushed whispers this morning due to security issues and tensions just over the adjacent port side berm.

The Nile River to Cairo flows parallel with the Suez Canal several miles to the East.

In reviewing the map, we’ll be sailing north past the coastline of Tel Aviv in Israel to Beirut in Damascus, then west to Nicosia on the Island in Cypress, then due west to the Island of Rhodes, our next port of call.

We’re the lead ship. Number one in a twenty-four ship convoy to pass through the canal today.
Among the many cargo and tanker ships, we’re the only passenger ship in the convoy.

After paying shipping and customs charges, I’ll be receiving two additional cases of Chesapeake Station books when we dock in Rhodes, an island off the coast of Turkey.


A World Tour to Raise Awareness About the Dangers of Nuclear Weapons

A World Tour to Raise Awareness About the Dangers of Nuclear WeaponsOn January 3, 2017, I enlisted my wife and my California based coordinator and his staff, to help promote a renewed global awareness regarding the threat posed by the worldwide expansion of nuclear weapons. At present there are no less than 10 major country states engaged in the development and stockpiling of nuclear weapons. Some nuclear initiatives concentrate on developing sources of energy and defense, many others are centered around offense measures to dominate the world.

Our target audience are the Millennials: those 30 to 35 years in age.

The future belongs to the Millennials. Our objective is to instill an awareness among young people. They and those who follow are guardians of the future. The launching of nuclear weapons against other nations of the world has the potential of ending life on Earth. The Chesapeake Station series, a futuristic expose into this growing phenomenon. Episode One, Evil Never Sleeps (Amazon.com) begins in the year 2188.

Signatories of to the NPT (The Non-Proliferation Nuclear Arms Treaty) include the USA, the UK, China, France, Russia, India, North Korea, and Pakistan. Several others such as Iraq and Israel, etc. are engaged in the development of such weapons.At present, there is an estimated 10,144 nuclear weapons world-wide..

We booked a world-wide initiative on board the cruise ship Pacific Princess out of Fort Lauderdale, FL. The cruise stops in 27 countries over 111 days. At this writing, we’re sailing in the French Polynesian Islands of Bora Bora and Papeete in the South Pacific Ocean. We have recently crossed the International Date Line and zero degrees of latitude.

We boarded a Jet Blue Flight from Boston to Fort Lauderdale with several suitcases, three of which were full of books. My baggage handler attempted to lift the luggage containing the books and was surprised to find them so heavy. When he hauled the luggage on top of the carry-on cart, the entire load of bags tipped over. “What’s in here,” he gasped. I just laughed and said, “books.”

“You like to read I guess,” he mused.

“Actually.” I said, “I’m on the first segment of a book tour.”

I helped him restore the load and we headed for the gate.

The 650 passenger ship is scheduled for six segments, and is completely booked with travelers from around the world. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting many of them to discuss events of the day, especially as regards my writings and the need to pay attention to world affairs. We’ve now begun a give-a-way program for those I feel would benefit from reading one of the three books I’ve brought along. Ticket to Ride, the Promise of America, Chesapeake Station, it Began with Serenity, and Episode one of the Chesapeake Station series, Evil Never Sleeps.” Visit the website: www.donhussey.com for more information; be sure to open the YouTube tab, “Media Room.” at the top.

I will be receiving two additional shipments of books when we dock in Auckland, New Zealand and in Hong Kong. over the next several weeks.

From New Zealand we will be docking in Australia, Singapore, Cambodia, and eventually Abu Dhabi, and Honk Kong, before a passage through the Suez Canal into the Mediterranean.

I will continue to post updates on our travels throughout this initiative. Earth, the little blue planet, tucked inside the vastness of the Milky Way Galaxy, is the place we call home. As generations pass, the continued future of mankind depends largely upon the use and misuse of nuclear technology.

Chesapeake Station, an orbiting space station, is in a fixed orbit around the planet Echo, within the  star system Tau Ceti, one of Earth’s closest habitable zones.


Chesapeake Station: Evil Never Sleeps Now Available

Seawall Books, Inc. announces their latest book, Chesapeake Station: Evil Never Sleeps (Episode One).

Following the introductory novella referred to as Serenity, comes the newly released Episode One of the Chesapeake Station Series. “Evil Never Sleeps.” 

Episode One, Evil Never Sleeps, is intended to encourage young adults, and the public at large, to stay focused on the state of affairs in today’s world. All must assume an active role in the ever growing political deeds and misdeeds of our day. This first in the Chesapeake Station series brings into remarkable focus the use and misuse of nuclear technology and the growing threat of a nuclear nightmare.

The incidence of violence both domestically and throughout the world must be confronted and eliminated. None of it promotes a healthy respect for life and certainly does not allow young people to grow up without the fear of what might happen next.

This is an adventure – a fast-paced, frightening adventure of nuclear extortion, mayhem, political intrigue, and evil on a grand scale.

Winter 2196

Episode One, Evil Never Sleeps.

*   *   *   *   *

Serenity is a medium size cruise ship of 74,540 tons, bound for the Caribbean out of Anchorage, Alaska. On board are 2605 passengers and crew. High-spirited high school students on a senior class trip from Tacoma, Washington, have arrived to join the cruise in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Also on board is a nuclear device stored in the ship’s safe.

In the backdrop of this seemingly endless and senseless chaos, President Katherine H. Delgado, is presented with a series of unimaginable and catastrophic events. Events that go far beyond the battleground of armed conflict…far beyond reason or even comprehension. At stake is the very existence of Earth itself!

There are no restrictions or limitations in an imaginary world, bearing in mind that much of what I’ve written here, may be far from the imaginary. Don Hussey 2016
