Great blog post for the following reasons.
1. After reading, I was left thinking...wow that was way better than the trip reports I have read in print publications.
2. The, "cheese cake - fire hose" analogy is fantastic even if it is reused.
3. I was left stoked on many levels, exploring my own gnar, dreaming of expedition paddling, California, making changes to my life so that I can paddle more and focus on the career less.
