Many have asked about where and when I’ll be during my Canoe 50 Campaign. Where? I have a general idea. When? Well, that’s a fine question, which I can’t answer with much certainty. I’ve budgeted for a 6 month trip, but it looks like I could complete it in 5 months if all went as planned — that’s a mighty if. Nevertheless, here’s my best guess of when and where I’ll canoe!
There are a multitude of unknowns that can (and likely will) slow my progress. This list includes, but is not limited to… my car exploding, my canoe sinking, injury, illness, piracy, alien abduction, a Deliverance type scenario, a Cast Away type scenario, getting sucked up by a tornado (think young Helen Hunt’s father in Twister), snake bite, alligator attack, bear fight, bar fight, incarceration, swamp monster, poisonous berries, joining a cult, starting a cult, Appalachian family feud, forest fire, flooding, prolonged period of bad weather, and bees.
These are just some of the challenges I can think of — rest assured, I will encounter plenty of unforeseen problems. And when things do go awry, I’ll be sure to document it on this site. Unless, of course, I get eaten.
