Paddling from the Amazon River to Florida - An Update from the Henry Brothers

Here is an update from the Henry Brother's, Graham and Russell.

We are super stoked for these guys.  What an adventure they will be on!!!




It's starting to warm up outside and the snow is melting making room for more paddling and paddling thoughts. I have 3 weeks of work left on Patrol up here at Mount Washington and Graham has 3 or 4 weeks till his exams are done at UBCO. We're really pumped to meet up and get down to business at the end of the month, all throughout May, and right up till we fly. We've booked our flights for June 10th out of Seattle, so pretty much eleven weeks till go time. 



We're excited to let you know that we're set up to get some great media exposure. I think you were already aware of Canoe and Kayak Magazine being on board with guaranteed coverage on their website and hopefully print post trip. We have also now added Coast Mountain Culture Magazine to the team. They're a West Coast magazine based out of BC's Lower Mainland that brings incredible stories, spectacular photos, appeal and coastal/mountain vibes to the majority of BC and the Pacific Northwest. They're really cool guys. In fact, a graphic media designer has already come up with a sort of 'Good Luck from CMC' quarter page piece that also lists our sponsors(including Kokatat, Werner, and Nikki Rekman Sales) for their next issue that comes out in May.



In other news, we received all our gear from Kokatat, and our paddles from Werner and love it all. I went for a paddle out to Hornby Island the other day with my new Kalliste and felt phenomenal. Thanks so much.



Right on, just thought I'd give you the lowdown on what's going on!



Cheers,



Russell
