Attention kayakers and clubs on the East Coast

This is an invitation to join me next year on my expedition. You can join me for a few hours, a day, a few days, a week, or a month.

The total trip will be 2000 miles.

The start point will be just west of Halifax Nova Scotia and the finish point will be Key West Florida. I plan on leaving on May 1st, 2017.

I am paddling for Mission 22 to raise awareness that 22 Veterans a day are committing suicide.

I myself am a disabled Veteran. I am training in Buzzards Bay, MA on my days off and run a course that is 37 nM total. I have it down to 6 hours.

I currently have a Wilderness System Pungo 140. I have a GOFUNDME going to raise monies to upgrade my equipment.

I will also be asking for permission to camp in your yard after Maine as I am doing this on my social security retirement pay.

I would appreciate the company on this trip. I would like to learn about the waters in your area and your experiences.


First blog post

This trip is bring awareness to Mission 22’s cause. To make people aware that 22 Veterans a day are committing suicide.

At this point I am making the trip solo but I would enjoy company along the route from other kayakers. I will have to decide where I should stop to spread the word along the way.

This is my first time raising funds for an organization so I will be talking with Mission 22’s help line allot in the beginning.

I will post picks here and send them to Mission 22 for their site.

Please join me in supporting this cause.
