We are in New York City!  About to leave for New Jersey so we can launch the SUP’s and circumnavigate the Statue of Liberty.

Since Matt and Brad have joined the trip, the adventure has taken on a different feel.  And it’s not necessarily Matt and Brad joining that has changed the feel; it’s the fact that there are tons of people.  It’s all about people.  The hosts we had in Boston, Rhode Island, and Connecticut all added value to this adventure.  The support and enthusiasm is overwhelming.  Thank you to Stacy Mac for putting together a great group of paddlers to join us in the Boston Harbor.  Included in the group was Jon, aka “Chino”, the only board shaper in Boston.  Check him out at  You can also check out Stacy at  In Rhode Island we had John from guide us through downtown Providence.  The paddle included going under a mall!  Meet up with John as soon as you can.  He’s moving west and we look forward to hosting John.  In Connecticut we had Frank guide us through the Thimble Islands.  Frank is a fellow teacher, coach, and ocean lover.

Again, thank you to all that have added to our experience.  It really is all about people and relationships.
