Sean Gastonguay, his wife, their two small children and his father left the United States by private boat to get away from what they considered government interference in religion. They attempted to reach the island nation of Kiribati, halfway between Hawaii and Australia. A storm severely damaged their boat, leaving them adrift on the ocean for weeks. Rescued by a fishing boat, they were transferred to a cargo ship that took them to Chile. Now back in the U.S., they owe the State Department $10,000 for the flight home (AP).
