The Road Less Paddled...


On January 1, 2018 I left Orcas Island in a solo sea kayak. 47 days later I returned to where I started, having completed the first documented winter circumnavigation of Vancouver Island. This was a journey of over 700 miles through the coldest, darkest, and windiest part of the year on the Pacific coast. You can read all about it on the expedition blog page.
