Way to get after it and conquer the land. Well done!

Amazing. My daughter and I were hiking the Kek over Memorial Day and were talking about doing exactly this - hike to Tuscarora Outfitters, pick up a canoe, and paddle back to our car. But we were thinking seven days, not five - three by foot to get east, and four paddling back west. I was surprised to see you describe that trip just two days after we were talking about it. Awesome!

I am amazed by how much distance you can cover (on foot or canoe). Thanks for sharing the trip, I think that would take me 7-10 days, but always look forward to hearing your adventures! Did you do any video for youtube on this trip?

Awesome video and trip Tony! My wife and I watched last night, we just love the adventures you come up and thinking outside the box to squeeze a trip in. This is one non-traditional way to take delivery of your new used canoe!
