I am a grandmother paddling alone over 2,500 miles from Maine to Guatemala. Along the way I will be:
- telling the story of the children who live in the Guatemala City garbage dump community
- honoring their entrepreneurial mothers
- talking about the success of the Safe Passage model school and
- raising funds for additional grades for the school.

News Flash: I now have a paddling companion!

Paddling a pond so my companion can join me first on gentle water.
I am so excited that I now have a companion to join me during the entire expedition from Maine to Guatemala!  This pond of water lilies is the perfect place to start paddling together, as there are no scary waves or high winds to frighten my new companion.

Less than a month before the start of the Kayak For Safe Passage Kids expedition, and there's still so much left to do.  How can I get everything done?

Where would Deb be without her Maptech charts?

We had a little misadventure when Chris, my photographer husband, and Tom Pilla, expedition videographer, joined me camping in Freeport over the weekend to do a photo shoot.
