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.

Kayak as Wheelbarrow

Chris demonstrating the use of the kayak as a wheelbarrow.
When we spent the weekend showing off the kayak at the Wooden Boat Show, we used the kayak to haul in the materials for the display.  It was fun when some one called out to us: "Great wheelbarrow!"
Note the final version of the cart we created: rugged, sturdy, but not light weight!  I have great confidence in the wheels, as they have been on several Arctic expeditions with me and successfully hauled a heavy kayak over rocks and tundra!
