Our goal is to make it to New Orleans by New Year’s Eve. To put that in perspective, it has taken us 76 days to paddle 1250 miles. (we just crossed the halfway point of our trip a few days ago). We want to paddle the next 900 in 20 days.
And this is partly by necessity – I’ve recently been offered an internship with my favourite magazine in New York City… and it starts in January. So a combination of an intense desire to make it to our destination, combined with a flight booked from New Orleans, has got us excited and motivated. But we need all the warm thoughts we can get. This might mean 20 days without showering and eating mostly canned beans and trailmix!
