Six to Launch

By on March 6, 2016

Six weeks till launch date, provided ice out of the Adirondack lakes and rivers and no flooding. Training weeks have consisted of weight training, xc skiing or trail running and canoe and kayak paddling in variable conditions. More focus on kayak over the next couple of weeks, then canoe. Have to finish outfitting boats for the expedition. #gettingexcited!

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.
