Emails, Phones Calls and Interviews...

We've been working really hard for the past two weeks contacting every retailer, outfitter, non-profit, organization, company or whoever we think would be interested in our adventure. We have gotten a hold of Rutabaga in Madison, Dan Cooke the great pack/canoe skirt creator, Valley Natural Foods in Burnsville and a few other pro-deals from Chota and BugShirt. Next weekend, March 12th - 13th we're going to Madison to advertise ourselves at Canoecopia! It'll be so great to meet other adventures and get the word out about our cause. As for media, look for us on Monday March 7th on North Shore Community Radio WTIP at 9:40AM. They will do a follow up interview with us closer to the beginning of the trip. Sometime in April we will be going to Grand Marais to be on a longer program with WTIP called "The Roadhouse" which airs on Friday nights. The Northfield Newspaper, Nick Coleman, The St. Olaf Magazine, Paddling Life and a few other online journals have also shown interest in writing about us. woo! That's all for now. We'll keep you in the loop. Meanwhile, send us any ideas at
