A year ago today

Last year at this time, I was driving frantically through the Yukon headed towards Skagway Alaska. I arrived in Skagway exhausted, and celebrated my birthday alone in an empty restaurant in town. The next day I got on a ferry and headed south and then embarked on an amazing trip.


This year I will be spending the evening with my wonderful and amazing wife, who lets me go on trips like this. Though in the back of my head, part of me will be thinking about the next time I can get out to the edge. Where the water is cold, and the weather is bad, and there is nothing left to do but paddle home. Thanks to everyone who reads here, and to my amazing wife who understands what makes me tick, and more importantly is okay with it.


  1. Your sentiments are understood PO...totally. Well put. Duncan.

  2. PO, you are one of the reasons why I started on this amazing journey. I don't know how many times I have watched your Paddle North videos but I hunger for more.

    Although I have read a lot of your blog posts it is on my list of things to do in its entirety.

    Maybe one day we will cross paths :-)

    POW (LOL)
