So after much prayer and thought, I am facing a hard deadline of June 1st to be on the water and paddling.
This adventure has been prolonged enough.
The plan is still to put in where the Whitewater River meets the Ohio River just outside Cincinnati and head down the Ohio. I am almost 2 months behind but think I can still do this trip… barring severe weather when I get into the North Country.
When God wants you to do something, there are often huge setbacks because the devil does not want it done. So it goes with life but God will prevail.
There are still a couple essential pieces of gear needed.
If anyone has a good all season stove like a MSR XGK EX Stove or a MSR Whisperlite International they would like to part with, I could use the assistance and can return them after the trip. I have a canister stove but after working with it in the winds the past few days, I don’t think it is going to make the cut.
I am also in need of a new life jacket like the NRS Ninja PFD and a spare paddle. I will and can use what I have but really would like safety first. Feel free to contact me if you can help.
On other news. I am hyper excited to get going. I am anxious to meet many, many people along the way and share why I am doing this trip, just chat or share a pot of coffee.
