Well, the time has come to start off on my long haul across the Rock. Saku and I are rearing to go. As most know, 700 kilometres of beauty and ruggedness lay in front of us. We are prepared. This trip has been a two year planning process for me. Specifically, over the last 10 months I have emptied near every ounce of my energy into the training and research of making this a reality. Hours of trial and error with gear, dieting, Saku’s preparation, my physical and mental capabilities and much more. The easiest part is over. Now the real fun and games begin. Days will be long, days will be short. Nature will be forgiving, nature will be cruel. We will learn to work with her and not against her. And at the end of the day the comfort of the country and thrill of adventure will fuel us to the finish! I have never been more excited, yet anxious, to do something in my life.
Along the way, help and support has been abundant. Below I want to thank some of my major sponsors and supporters:
BURSEY’S EXCAVATING AND DEVELOPMENT INC.
Without the exceptional generosity of this St.John’s based company I wouldn’t of been able to have the quality of gear I currently have now. Thank you so much for making this trip possible guys.
I also want to mention Chief Misel Joe of Conne River. His words of wisdom and willingness to take my food supply in that community has made that leg of the trip a success.
Other supporters are my girlfriend Heather, parents, grandparents and of course my close friends and family. All individuals have contributed in some way or another.
