An adventure in Northwest waters

Our inspiring sponsor, Susan Marie Conrad, did something many of us want to do, but almost nobody does: she kayaked the entire Inside Passage, from Anacortes to Juneau, Alaska. You and I both know this story is more than just the logistics of paddling, and Conrad delivers a great story in her book Inside: One Woman’s Journey Though the Inside Passage. It's well-told, rife with personal accomplishment, and that kind of self-examination that only comes from pitting oneself against nature.

We have a long, engaging excerpt on our Sponsors page. Please give it a read, and see a few pictures from the trip, as well. If you're like us, you'll want to click through and read the rest of the story. We hope you do.
