I want to be the first man to set world record to stand-up paddle board the entire coast of Texas (450mi), solo and unsupported for Patriot PAWS service dogs. They are a non-profit organization that helps give service dogs to Veterans. Patriot PAWS also works within the Texas Department of Criminal Justice( TDCJ) prison system that has female inmates also work with the dogs during their 3 years of training!  100% of everything raised is going to Patriot PAWS

I am carrying 6 days of food, 11 liters of water, tent, solar panels, battery back ups, emergency rescue gear, first aid, clothes, camera equipment
