Tour de Hunter

As some of you already know, we are biking 5000 miles across the county hitting alot of the good kayaking communities. We've done the oregon coast to the the rogue, lochsa, the salmons, clark fork, yellowstone and jackson and not to forget colorado! We are in Pueblo right now saying good-by to our last signs of the whitewater. But were headed straight for Kentucky, the Virginias and the Carolinas next!! Just gonna take a little more peddling to get there. You never know, maybe we'll find a mean play-spot in kansas.

We have raised over $4000 in last 1 1/2 months which will be put towards kayak safety. But we still need alot more to accomplish some of our goals.

In addition to raising money for kayak safety, we are trying to spread a message, in honor of Drew Hunter (who past in the fish ladders section in our home town of vail) teaching everyone around us what we have learned from Drew and the way he lived his life. Drew was passionate about everything and anything he did in life, and his inspiration is what gave us the drive to conquer this ride!

If you are headed east you might drop a little south of Kansas and take a look in Arkansas for WW as we've had some good rains the past several weeks. Good luck on your journeys.
