Over the course of my travels, I have developed an affinity for the therapeutic and destructive forces of water. Travelling by road and highway on a motorcycle can be a loud and fast mode of transport. The bicycle revealed the peace and quiet of nature without the company of an engine. Taking the concept further, I enthusiastically am preparing for a 4 month solo canoe journey down the Mississippi River. The trip will begin in the headwaters of Lake Itasca, MN and continue 2'320 miles downriver to the Gulf of Mexico.
Following multiple cross-contitnetal journeys on two wheels, in June 2016 I will attempt to paddle the length of the Mississippi River from it's headwaters to the Gulf.
