The Wahkiakum County Eagle - Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

Party planned to send off trekking kayaker


To The Eagle:

When I first heard about Kyleen Austin’s Ketchikan to Puget Island kayak adventure two thoughts came to mind. First, what an amazing adventure and second, how do you get ready to paddle solo for 1,000 miles? Seriously, the preparation that goes into being ready mentally, physically and spiritually in addition to the logistics of itinerary planning and provisioning are mind boggling. I would be a frantic mess, but Kyleen isn’t. She’s ready to go and excited to share this great adventure with all of us.

To find out more about her coming Inland Passage Adventure, there will be a launch party for Kyleen and her kayak, BABS, on Friday, 3-5 p.m. at Stockhouse Farm on Puget Island, 62 West Birnie Sough Rd. Please come and join with us in wishing her a bon voyage. Refreshments will be served.

As Mark Twain said, “Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than those you did. So, throw off the bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the wind in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
