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'

  4. We are really happy you made Rupert. Have been following you everyday since you left that Island you landed on that has a beach that sounds like "West Beach"!!! Can't give away our true location now!!! Absolutely amazing journey, fantastic videos and side splitting blog entries; particularily the one detailing the very fine art of peeing while travelling the wild west coast in a kayak.
    We have now left that island ourselves for our two months off and with the aid of wireless technology are able to follow you as we travel in our motorhome throughout Vancouver Island. Yes, we pee in our motorhome but will spare you the details!!!
    Keep up the posts we love them and know that if the world had bunch more young ladies like you two we doubt it would have many of the probelms it now faces. You are goal setters, driven to reach as high and as far as you can............. and then a bit farther. Greatly admire you.
