That was my thought before the Adventure began. Now....I wouldn't change those four things needed to succeed although I'd move "persistence" to the last. It starts with "determination" and ends with "persistence" with "wise decision making and a little luck" needed in between. Yup, that sums er up pretty good!

For those interested in reading more, the best written account out there is an internet discussion on an Alaskan Canoeing forum where I posted a question about availability of drinking water on the Bering Sea coastline that turned into kind of a play-by-play of the trip. If you’d like to understand some of challenges faced take a look at that discussion and then maybe you’ll think twice before asking me if “I’d do it again?” It's 32 pages of discussion starting with Post #1 dated 01-03-2013.
Being back from the Adventure hasn’t been without its challenges too. But I wouldn’t want to relive the past. Still glad it’s over…but when I see water, I haven’t lost the urge to paddle it.
