The Grandest Of Adventures

Aug 16, 2016

Descending the Grand Canyon of the Colorado has been a life long dream ever since I took up kayaking at the young age of eight.

I remember reading magazines, seeing pictures and dreaming of one day descending the mighty Grand Canyon. Eventually after many years of applying for a permit I won one and so the journey was set.

18 days and nights on the river, self supported and with a group of my best friends.

For some reason I decided that wasn’t enough, I needed more of challenge, I needed to build my own wooden boat to take down the river. And so the Betty Jones Dory was born.

Now the journey became more elaborate. Now we had to drive the boat down to the Grand Canyon, so, of course, we set about on an amazing overland journey through some of the USA’s greatest natural wonders. A wedding along the way, spending time with other friends and a faster sprint home. 48 days on the road, and what an adventure.
