It's expedition season, and I am at home.

Well, expedition season is in full swing, and you have many to choose from:

WithLandOnOurLeft - is three young men circumnavigation Britain for charity. And they are going the wrong way around. By the looks of their blog they are spending a lot of time on land as the wind isn't really cooperating. But I guess that is to be expected when you go the opposite direction of everyone who has ever done the trip before you. I am very curious if they have the perseverance to make it happen.

Aluetians 2012 - this one is already completed, and blows me away. From Dutch Harbor all the way out to the end of the island chain, Herbert island. There is no good weather where they paddled.

Pacific Kayaker - I don't have a lot of information here, apparently this gentleman is going to paddle from California to Hawaii. His departure date is TBD (July 2 to the 4th). I am pretty sure that this route has been done once before - that makes it no less insane.

There is one more expedition I remember reading about and this morning I can't find the link. A pair of kayakers is going from Juneau to Patagonia. This is the Inside Passage and then some!

As for me, I am thinking about potential dates, and talking with Sarah. Last year at this time I was somewhere in the vicinity of Wrangell, Alaska I was almost certainly cold and wet, and having the time of my life.
