I thought this would be the best spot to give thanks to so many folks who made the trip amazing!  I finished!  Which was my goal and I did better than I thought do to friends along the way like Beth, Russ, Buck, Sam, and Emily!  My ground crew was perfectly trained due to this forum.  I was trained to a tee thanks to 340 Paddler videos on Youtube!  The crews at the boat ramps were amazing!  People along the route who would see your boat number, look it up and yell your name were AWESOME!  Thanks to the people who made this a dream come true.  It was an honor and pleasure to paddle with all of you!
Going where the river takes me!

It has that day after Christmas feeling about it.  Like an annual festival of the paddle where every act was original and awesome.  Everyone was experiencing a different story; hundreds of them playing out before our very eyes. Hearing the rumors about different paddlers being discussed on the ramps was mesmerizing and Every rumor of another fallen paddler was gut wrenching and yet the drama played out in real time and keeping up with all of it was impossible.  I look forward to seeing each of you involved with this race year after year for decades to come.
