The Great Loop


You can never cross the ocean unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore


I have always been drawn to the water. Ever since I took off on my paddle board trip up the entire coast of Texas Solo and unsupported it opened my eyes to a new world. In the spirit of adventure there are two amazing routes that stand out above the rest. Going down the mighty Mississippi.. and more than just that, The Great loop. I am planning an adventure over the next 2 years to tackle this monumental American dream! June 2021 I plan on doing a test run traveling the same route as my paddle board adventure but the 450 miles will be in a kayak. I plan to use that trip and a test run for the Great Loop. In the early summer of 2022 I want to launch out of Louisiana, go around Florida, travel up to New York, make my way through the Great Lakes to then make my way down the Mississippi River to end at Louisiana.

You can not only track/text me live via my GPS but I am also encouraging you to join for any leg that you can!
