Follow Erik on GPS!

Check the canoeist location and see where he is.

The Daily Float Plan is my paddling schedule. Although weather and unforeseen circumstances can affect my daily plans, I will be checking in at major points on schedule.

HOSTING

If you are interested in hosting me for a meal or a night, please let me know. I will especially appreciate access to a laundromat or rides to the store to restock my food supply.

SPEAKING

If you would like me to speak at an event or meeting during my time on the river, please contact me. I will have a powerpoint, a small ShelterBox and gear that I can incorporate into my presentation.
