I remember hanging out with a dude who had done stuff with NASA and was into sailing talk about a project he wanted to do with a sailboat like this. He was going to program the whole thing to sail from San Francisco to New York via the trans siberian railway. He had the idea of having the sailboat somehow interact with whoever found it and then pay them to load the thing onto a freight car and ship it on out. He was also very high when he told me about it, and I'm guessing I would have heard about it if he'd pulled it off. I think getting a little robot across a park is about my speed.
