The Dream

If there is one thing we can all relate to, it is the notion of a dream. An aspiration that consumes us and leaves us with no choice but to follow through, making that dream a reality. Those of us that share a great love for the outdoors and the wild spaces still left on this planet understand the need to be out there. We understand that sometimes a dream is more than just a desire; sometimes it is a necessity of life.

On a quest to fulfill our need to be out there we have pursued successful careers in the outdoor industry, pouring in the same passion we have for those wild spaces in search of a purpose that will connect us. But we know that lifestyle isn’t enough, something still calls to us and when we can, we answer. This is an answer that has been 15 years in the waiting. This is an expedition that reminds us of how we got here, keeps us going through the dry times and fulfills that empty space within us all labeled ‘purpose’. This is what we live for.

On May 4th 2009 we will depart from Galiano Is (BC, Canada) in two single sea kayaks headed north for Glacier Bay (Alaska, US). We are two able, confident and experienced women, seeking to challenge our experience as guides through our own expedition of the entire coast we love and work on.

We aren’t heroes and we aren’t breaking new ground. We are simply two women following our dreams and in turn hoping to inspire a few other people to do the same.

This is how we live our lives the way we have always dreamed...

It's about more than an expedition, it's about more than a sport, it's even about more than a lifestyle. This is about dreams, this is about passion, this is about listening to that need to be out there. It's about learning how to 'fly'. 

We're calling it 'Crossing Borders'

Two members have given up - Angela

Already TWO members of our team haven’t been able to cut the rigorous demands of paddling to Alaska. My mango sea kayak has left us, maybe to never be seen again. I experienced some major gel coat issues and leaking bulkheads. So, today I drove back to Horseshoe bay, retracing 20 days of paddle strokes and reliving many memories along the way. I swapped my mango boat for a blue boat of same make and model. A huge thanks to Bob at Deep Cove Kayaks in Vancouver for finding a not so common boat and delivering it to me at Horseshoe Bay.

The second member of the team to leave us is part of one of my teeth. Today while driving back from Nanaimo, I was eating a chewable vitamin, and part of a tooth fell out. So, I am currently on the phone to all the dentist offices in the area trying to figure something out! Turns out none of them are open on Monday or even most of this month! New career goal: Dentist in Port Mcneil.
