In April of 2018 a group of 4 paddlers will embark on an ambitious and wonderful trip.
They will paddle across the United States of America in one long push. EXPED is a sponsor and the team will be using our tents, sleeping mats, sleeping bags, drybags and stuff sacks. Below please find an overview of the trip - exciting stuff!
From the Coursing Through America Facebook page:
From April to November of 2018, our team aims to paddle in two 18’ foot canoes across America; from the Pacific Ocean just south of Seattle to the Atlantic Ocean at the tip of Florida. As you can imagine, this trip will take a grueling 220 days to complete the 7,700 Kilometers (4800 miles) from coast to coast. This is the expedition of a lifetime. More people have walked on the moon than have traveled across the United States of America by canoe from the northwest coast to the southeast coast in less than a year. This adventure will take the team across America’s natural waters to pursue their dream of discovery, understanding and consciousness of the world around them. This incredible seven-month journey will empower the participants to engage in a close relationship with nature while retracing the legendary explorations of many historical voyageurs such as Lewis and Clark, Louis Jolliet, Jacques Marquette as well as follow the traces of America’s First Nations.
