A note from John

By on June 29, 2016
Finally, I am safely on land and I am dry!
Thanks to you, this has been a most successful and absolutely incredible first-ever 1500-mile, 70-day canoe and kayak expedition linking four major water routes in the northeastern United States and eastern Canada.
Here are links to some articles from last Friday’s completion of PaddleQuest 1500. I will send more as they become available! Enjoy!
So much thanks. I could not have accomplished this without your support!
More to come. Cheers!

Kayaking in Maine

In April of 2016, I’ll launch on a 75-day river/ocean odyssey that will carry me over 2 countries, 4 states, 22 streams, 58 lakes, and 1500 miles. As leader of L.L.Bean’s Outdoor Discovery Schools for 10 years and a former member of the US Canoe & Kayak team with numerous whitewater first-descents to my credit, I believe I am uniquely qualified to meet this challenge.
