Countdown to the Keys

IMG_0040 copy

Entering the last few days of prep for my upcoming adventure trek in the Florida Keys! I don’t think I’ve ever planned a trip that is so much like an expedition before, even with the help of the folks of Burnham Guides, who have been kindness itself in helping me plan my trip. I am actually doing the first half of my journey with them in a small group outing, for reasons both of safety and just making the trip more manageable. I’ll have more updates as the week progresses, but for now the basics are: Six days of kayaking and camping from Marathon Key to Key West, then picking up my bike from storage and heading back north. All things being equal, by three days later I will be at mile marker 80 and will have traversed almost the entire Keys chain under human power. My tan should be spectacular.

While you’re waiting for trip updates, I just realized I forgot to mention our first PODCAST is up! It’s about the Ghost Ship of the Northumberland Strait in Nova Scotia, and you can access it on our podcast page. You should be able to download it as well, but as it’s our first stab at the podcast thing let us know if you have issues and we’ll correct them.

More to come, including our first webisode and me hopefully not being eaten by a giant marine predator while kayaking. Stay tuned!
