Everglades Challenge Training Trip

180 miles in a sailing ‘yak amongst the barrier islands of Georgia: simultaneously a training run for the upcoming Everglades Challenge and the realization of a childhood dream. Having recently met my newly minted nephew Graham, I was reminded of the way that infants can swing from the heights of joy to the depths of human sorrow and back. This trip felt that way—an emotional roller coaster.

On March 2, I depart with 90-something fellow competitor/wingnuts on an even longer journey from Tampa Bay to Key Largo. You can track our progress or lack thereof at this website:
