Wish List

In order to achieve the goals of the Expedition, there are a number of items that we could use. Whether you donate one of these items, or make a gift toward its purchase, we will gratefully acknowledge your contribution.

· DRY BAGS. We need lots of dry bags of assorted sizes. Clear dry bags are great for seeing its contents.
· SLEEPING BAG. We could use one down sleeping bag rated to 20° F. Down? You may ask. It packs smaller than its equivalent synthetic fill bag - and on a kayak expedition, space is at a premium.
· 5-LB. REFILLABLE PROPANE TANK. Refillable tanks are a more environmentally-sound solution, producing fewer empty fuel containers.
· WHITE GAS. We will cook breakfasts and dinners most nights during the five months of the Expedition: that is a lot of fuel burned.
· FILM & DEVELOPING. Photo-documenting will be important in achieving our mission. We expect to shoot over 300 rolls of film!
· EPIRB. An important locational beacon in case of emergency. We will hope that we never use it.
· VHF RADIO. We need one more VHF radio, another important emergency item.
· 2-GALLON NYLON WATER BLADDERS. Water will be our single biggest limiting factor for how long we can go between stops. Water bladders are lightweight, are malleable, fitting whatever space they are in, and compress to a small bundle when empty.

VOLUNTEERS! Shuttle drivers, Gulf of Maine Day volunteers, logistics support, and more. Volunteering is a great way to help the Expedition raise awareness about Gulf ecology and boating safety and stewardship.
