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
. We need
lots of dry bags of assorted sizes. Clear dry bags are great for seeing
. 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.
Refillable tanks are a more environmentally-sound solution, producing
fewer empty fuel containers.
. We will cook breakfasts
and dinners most nights during the five months of the Expedition: that
is a lot of fuel burned.
will be important in achieving our mission. We expect to shoot over 300
rolls of film!
. An important locational
beacon in case of emergency. We will hope that we never use it.
. We need one more VHF
radio, another important emergency item.
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.
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.
