We made it!

Just a quick note to say we made it….. The longest kayak crossing of the trip to get to the peninsula – a cheeky fifty miler – followed by another 30 mile day on Thursday we made it to Homer and the start of the road at 8pm last night. Happy happy happy paddlers!


More once we get back to Anchorage and get sorted. Thanks for joining us 🙂

    Absolutely Grand. Very pleased that you guys completed this leg of your journey without incident. Enjoy your week of rest, ride safe and please watch for out for the bears during the next phase of the journey. The bears you will encounter during the next 1000 km or so may consider you to be a menu item. Get an amble supply of bear/pepper spray and keep it close especially when camping until you get to the great plains.

    Safe Travels Sarah, enjoy the open roads again.
    P.S do not forget to give us daily updates once the next leg of your journey.
