According to Sean Myers, "It all started out with an energy-bar wrapper." Myers, who sails Souls Calling, a Lagoon 500, says that while eating the bar, "for some reason I was thinking about my life goals. The bar just happened to be a Clif Bar. On the wrapper was a brief note from the fellow who made it. He thanked his father, Clifford, for all the wonderful times they'd had together. It stopped me dead in my tracks. I wasn't expecting something like that on a wrapper. I was touched, deeply touched. I wondered if my kids felt the same way, if I'd done enough with them and for them for them to be as grateful. I decided that I hadn't. I was too busy with work. They were too busy with school. It was time for a change. So I walked downstairs to the kitchen where my wife, Jennifer, was preparing dinner, and I blurted out, 'Let's buy a boat and sail across the Pacific!'"
