Until last Saturday, I hadn’t been in a kayak since October 26th, the day I reached the Northwest Angle. I went to take a friend a few miles down one of Florida’s spring-fed rivers. We saw an alligator, some turtles, and a red Valentine’s Day balloon. The balloon reminded me of all the balloons I found on the trip, left to drift in the sky until they floated their way into our waterways. The map above shows the location of all the balloons I found along with a picture if you click on the markers.
You end up in all kinds of interesting places if you set off into the sky. This Friday, I’m going to get on a plane and end up in Madison, Wisconsin, for Canoecopia (here is some more information: http://www.canoecopia.com/canoecopia/speaker.asp?spid=1001695&year=2014. It’s a giant paddling event with tons of presentations, gear manufacturers, and workshops. I’ll be speaking and sharing pictures and videos from my trip on Friday night at 7:30pm and Saturday morning at 11:30am. Please come out and say hello! I miss you all!
