I accomplished two major milestones in my planning yesterday: I mailed off my first of many sponsorship proposal letters (this one to Eddyline Kayaks-I hope they like it), and I announced the trip to my Facebook friends after two weeks of serious consideration, and numerous questions emailed to Norm Miller (thank you again, Norm).
It is almost a relief to commit to the project, and then announce it. Once you announce your plan, doubts and worries transform into direction and details. I have passed the point of no return. Going for it is the only option.
Today, I feel great. Not so much because of these two accomplishments, but more so because I am NOT racing in the MR340 race (340 miles from Kansas City to St. Charles) today, tomorrow, and the next day in triple digit heat. Now THAT’s extreme paddling!
