dreams of America.

This is a grassroots project and all forms of support are greatly appreciated!
Stay tuned for details on the next expedition and a chance to join me on the water.




The ReDiscovering America Kayak Expedition was completed on July 9th! 

With  a detour because of flooding, a portage to catch the South Bass Island event and getting around the Chicago Shipping and Sanitation Canal, my total mileage ended up being 2,350 from Cold Spring, NY to Twin Bridges State Park in Wyandotte, OK!

I finished my trip over a month ahead of my scheduled Aug 15th arrival.

I would like to thank all the people that helped me out along the way. From warm dinners, hot showers, cold drinks,ice cream, car rides to stores, random gifts of peanut m&ms! and couches to crash on, I could not have completed this trip without all of you.

I would really like to thank Jackson Kayak,Richardsons MAPTechSea to Summit, the Toledo River Gang41DegreesLake Erie OutfittersGeneva Kayak,  Peoria Boat Club members Kevin and Jeff, Muskogee Port Authority, Summers Lighthouse, GRDAErie Canal Historical Society.
