Louis Bird, 24, is an inexperienced rower, yet he completed a 2,400 mile journey across the Pacific Ocean from California to Hawaii in just 54 days. Bird didn't have expertise to rely on, but he did have the powerful inspiration of his late father, who died at sea in 1996 while also rowing the North Pacific.

Bird only got five precious years with his father and he hoped this journey would bring him some closure on his passing. His father, Peter Bird, was also the first man to row the Pacific Ocean solo in 1983.

Watch today's Seeker Stories video to see footage from Bird's incredible adventure and find out if he was able to gain solace from this unique experience.
