We were thrilled to enjoy some local media coverage:
Alan Walton from CHEK TV shot some footage of us preparing the canoe for a short paddle in the protected bay.

March 22, 2007: First official day of paddling on the trip
Diminished winds on Thursday made it possible to finally push off and put our first 15 kilometers of paddling behind us.
Anyone willing to be a re-supply location?
Depending on our progress, we’ll need to re-supply every few weeks. That involves buying fresh food, and picking up maps and supplements. Unfortunately, we don’t know people at each place we must stop. From time to time, we’ll need help from volunteers. This would consist of holding a re-supply package that comes in the mail until we pass through. Please keep an eye on our newsletter for upcoming places where we will need this type of help.
A very big thank you to Regenesis:
