The Adventure has Begun . . .

Paddle to the Sea

Our Eel River Expedition has begun. We are paddling the main fork of the Eel River from the its beginning whitewater stretches to the Pacific Ocean.

Yesterday, we began by paddling Pillsbury to Hearst.

Today we are at our friends house staging for the rest of our journey. We got some great photos yesterday which we will be posting with a full write up of the adventure when we return.

When will we return? We are estimating that the trip will take us from 7-14 days.

After today, we will be in the wilderness without phone or internet communication. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers. We look forward to sharing photos and stories of our adventure when we return.

For now - we are off to paddle to the sea.


  1. Have fun & be safe kids! Wish we could follow the boats via GPS or something, but we'll just stay tuned here for the exciting stories and pictures.

  2. What an awesome trip. Have fun and be safe and God bless,
