We have finished our kayak trip, arriving in Ladysmith, BC on Saturday, Sept. 1. We have had an unbelievable time exploring this wonderful region of the world. There is no way that this trip would have been feasible without the amazing support of all of you in Juneau! We would like to shout the biggest THANK YOU to all of you who have supported us in some way. KXLL Excellent Radio, Above and Beyond Alaska, Nugget Alaskan Outfitter, Aurora Projekt, Cycle Alaska, Art Sutch Photography and Digital Imaging, Alaskan Brewing Co. and Seaward Kayaks.

In addition, the huge support that was lent from the many individuals who donated to our Kickstarter Fund as well as attended our kick-off party has allowed us to capture many of our experiences on film. We would also like to extend a huge thank you to all of our parents for giving us this once in a lifetime opportunity. Please visit our website, www.atripsouth.com , to check out pictures from the journey as well as a short film about a major issue in British Columbia.

While you are reading this we will be starting the bicycle portion of our journey. We will be traveling south from the Olympic Peninsula with the final goal of Tierra Del Fuego, Argentina. Please continue to check our website for future updates along the way!

Thank you,
The Crew of A Trip South
