Okay we are almost done!

16 hours left in our kickstarter.

I am almost done talking about it.

I am truly flattered by the friends, family, co-workers, acquaintances and strangers who have come out to help us make this film, and have this adventure.

With 16 hours left we are at $1195, far exceeding our goal of $700. But, we would like to use this time remaining to see what else we can manage. Literally every penny counts.

If you have done a trip like this, then you know that expenses just appear in the final prep time. If you haven't done a trip like this, then here are the purchases I have made in the last 24 hours alone.

Fuel
Service for a SPOT connect
SD cards
A new battery charger.
And Batteries, lots of batteries.

with 33 days to go, here is what my desk looks like:


So what I am trying to say is, its the crazy time. The time before a trip when you are compiling all of the little things you will need. Think about everything you will need for the next month. Now put it in a dry bag, and hope you didn't forget anything. 

So if you have supported us, thank you. If you haven't yet, now is the time. Tomorrow at around 9:30am (EST) we are all done. Then I just have to focus on getting us all in place to paddle. 

Thanks
