  • Bumfuzzle - Just out looking for Pirates By Patrick Schulte We ve all had that conversation with ourselves or our significant other the one about what to do with our life For some it remains just that a conversation But for Pat and Ali the simple question posed over too many pitchers of beer at their favorite downtown Chicago pizza place had an answer that demanded action What do you think about sailing around the world for fouWe ve all had that conversation with ourselves or our significant other the one about what to do with our life For some it remains just that a conversation But for Pat and Ali the simple question posed over too many pitchers of beer at their favorite downtown Chicago pizza place had an answer that demanded action What do you think about sailing around the world for four years Pat asked Ali Sure, why not came the non chalant, slightly inebriated response And thus concluded what would become a life changing moment for the two.Why not Well, for starters, they had never stepped foot on a sailboat before For another, they were on the fast track to beating out all of the Joneses They were young, and by any measure successful, but they were bored and getting a little soft around the middle Their comfortable existence wasn t doing it for them, and the idea of moving to the suburbs from the city to become comfortable made them queasy.Within months they d bought a 35 catamaran after just eight hours of searching , and had set out across the Gulf Stream for the Bahamas For months they fine tuned their decidedly amateur sailing routine, and theney were off.For the next four years they sailed around the world, had adventures, met new people, faced down dangers, discovered new and amazing things like winches have two speeds and a sailboat s windex is not it s blue glass cleaner They also learned that people are good the world over that every stranger was not out to get them, that even the scariest looking among them the pirates of our minds eye are deep down no different from you and I In fact, they ve had that conversation too What am I going to do with my life

      waste of time Save yourself an afternoon.cally here s all you need to know in a run on sentence A couple went on a sailing trip around the world, saw some things no details needed , had minimal adventures, found out they don t like sailing or people who sail very much, and finished the trip.

    2. Joe Farhaven on said:

      Most of the book was complaining about one thing or another I enjoyed the parts about people and cultures, but the sailing parts did nothing for me The blog is better.

    3. Steve Jenkins on said:

      Sometimes their complaining about sailing gets old, but I suppose anyone as unprepared as these two were would find the long passages boring I love the fact that even with their miniscule knowledge of doing this kind of thing they did it successfully on their own terms The included pictures had no captions so they had little meaning With the attitudes some of the crusiers had I can understand their dislike I m sure the diehard nautical types will scoff at their abilities, but they did something [...]

    4. Beccy Edsforth on said:

      I m not entirely sure why I enjoyed this as much as I did, but there you go Very easy to read due to the diary format and lack of over arching storyline, and an interesting take on the whole process I m not as offended by his comments about other cruisers as some, I rather like his honesty about being slightly indifferent to sailing and the other people involved, as well as his justifications for taking some potentially questionable decisions if you were to believe sailing lore.

    5. Denzel L Struchen on said:

      Amazing stories of rokiesWho would believe 2 white collars workers with no nautical experience except 1day of class could sailing around the world Like 2 toddlers who don t know that it is impossible, these two buy a catamaran With whimsy and a go for attitude they proof the cruising community wrong Great read and challenge When are you going to step out of your rut and go for your dream.

    6. Alyssa Callahan on said:

      sighI guess I liked the epilog the best I cannot tell you how lucky these two were on the ocean I was surprised to learn they didn t like the compass on deck, good thing the computer didn t crash The disdain for other cruisers I understand, but it got annoying after the first twenty times I appreciate that they had an idea, set a goal, and did it Not many do.

    7. Andrew on said:

      I picked this book up on the Kindle from and it cost 0.00 All I can say is that after reading this book, if I had to have paid for it, I wouldn t have been very happy Bumfuzzle is the name of the boat that Pat and Ali Schulte bought and circumnavigated the world in I didn t like this book on a lot of levels Firstly, it was the usual travel log I did this, and then I went there and did that, and after that I did this, and I don t like sailing, then we went there and did this I don t like cruisers [...]

      Sailing around the world with a boat, a blonde, and a brash attitude.I ve never been on a sailboat in my life and never had any interest in doing so And yet, I don t know when I ve enjoyed a book so much I suspect that being around the author would quickly exhaust me, but he s a delight to read about.His years as a trader in the Chicago Stock Exchange gave him boundless confidence and daring He was lucky enough to be married to a woman who shares his fearless approach to life She LITERALLY can t [...]

    9. Ryan on said:

      I liked that this book got me excited about traveling and fueled my desire to sail around the world But, I would probably not be friends with the author He comes across as pretty cocky and talks a lot of crap about the sailing and cruising community I m about the same age as him but in a very different income bracket I bought a 36 foot sail boat with two friends to sail across the pacific but we took a lot time getting ready largely due the fact that we had much less money than Pat and Ali We w [...]

    10. Max Nova on said:

      Bumfuzzle is the story of a couple s journey around the world in a catamaran for which the book is named They had almost no prior sailing experience and spoke no language besides English It was certainly an interesting read I got the sense that sailing around the world is a possible b involves very long stretches of open sea sailing that could drive me insane Seems sort of miraculous that they survived but I guess maybe circumnavigation isn t quite as tricky as it was in Magellan s day

    11. Maggie on said:

      I must confess that it was the title that drew me to this book but I really enjoyed these sailing adventures Pat Ali grew world weary when they realised that making money was not really making them happy they decide to sail around the world as you do Their laid back attitude should have led to total disaster before they left US waters but maybe that was the key to their success I really enjoyed seeing the world through their eyes.

    12. Kerry on said:

      This was interesting to read on many levels in terms of world sailing I did find the main character a little grating at times between his inexperience and his bravado But on the other hand, he doesn t claim to always know what he s doing and they do learn as they go By the end of the book they had won me over a bit Reading about the various places they went was fun too.

    13. Teresa on said:

      Followed these two on their blog from their Pacific Crossing Great travelogue Great for kids too Nice photos and a nice addition to the reports on the blog Still follow them as they prepare for sialing with their new fuzzle.

    14. Shelly on said:

      Love this book Love the bums Fantastic travel stories Their blog is full of stunning photographs from around the world Live vicariously or get motivated You can not go wrong starting with the book.

    15. David Hughes on said:

      I enjoyed the book but was a bit disappointed that it focused mostly on the sailing aspects of their journey and only somewhat covered the details of the various ports they visited So, I suppose I ll dig into their blog archives after all

    16. Victoria on said:

      I gave this book a 5 star rating because we are friends with Pat and Ali It is a great book though and between you and me it is a solid 4 Read it and get swept up in the excitement of possibilities.

    17. Michelle Valdez on said:

      Great adventureThis was a great read I couldn t put it down, as I wanted to learn about this amazing trip around the world Not as I would picture it, but still not discouraged to keep it on my bucket list.

    18. Craig Bowman on said:

      An enjoyable book to read, but I found the writer to be a bit snobby when it came to what they thought of every other sailor It seemed they didn t like being around other sailors It seems strange to live on a sailboat and yet not like other sailors Sailing is mostly a social endeavor.

    19. Kjm on said:

      Very Interesting and a wonderful accomplishment for this couple The best thing about this book is that it imparts to the read that desires can be accomplished regardless of your situation or station They weren t sailors, they were world travelersey just did it That is the key to life.

    20. Bonnie on said:

      Good info I liked it, but may not be for everyone This isn t a sailing in the caribbean with a rum drink in one hand while hopping island to island book I follow their blog and I ll buy his next book.

    21. John Posnett on said:

      A great book People give the author a lot of stick by the sounds of it, but you have to give them credit, they got out there and did it, and had fun, and that s what it s all about They have a refreshing outlook on cruising, which is great fun to read Taken as extracts from a diary.

    22. Joe on said:

      Listened to part of the audio book and then bailed wife listened to the whole thing and told me it was of the same Sailing sounds as tedious as this book Great blog been reading for years , but this book was meh.

    23. Ricky Kimsey on said:

      Sailing Around The WorldThis is the author s account of his nearly four year voyage around the world with his wife He gives vivid discriptions of the people and places visited on their voyage.

    24. Maura Bushior on said:

      Oh my gosh Finally finished This made sailing sound like the most boring, redundant chore ever Travel yes Sailing ehh.

    25. Jenny Nicole on said:

      I will have to agree I enjoyed the blog better than the book They write about what I have always wanted to do Amazing adventure.

    26. David Harper on said:
