Out on tour yesterday we came across these two fine chaps. Jake Stachovak is paddling 'around the block' and for part of his GA coast leg he has been joined by local paddler Mark Gibbs. Jake told us a little about his 5000 mile amble, with no particular schedule except to be home in time for his mums birthday in October. How sweet. Jake's mum lives in Portage WI, which is where he began and will finish his trip.
The “Portage to Portage Paddling Project” is a 5000 mile solo kayak journey around the Eastern United States. An adventure that will link the Mississippi River to the Great Lakes via the Gulf Coast, East Coast, and New York Canal Systems starting and ending in the small town of Portage Wisconsin.
Mark Gibbs, from Macon, hooked up with Jake via his blog and decided to join him for a the few days paddle from St Catherines to Tybee.
Nice one Mark.!
And all the best to Jake...a fine way to amble.
