The Bicycle Portage Begins and Gratitude at the Confluence

Thank you Lewiston and Clarkston for everything and connecting me with amazing people and friends new and old! You have brought this time at confluence to life and rejuvenated me for the next chapter of this journey!Β 

I still am trying to wrap my mind around the odds of running into one of my childhood friends, Hyder Bos-Jabbar, who I grew up with on a rural road in the Yukon, at a show I played in Lewiston the other night πŸ’₯🎢 

I also can't fully express how grateful I am for the wonderful souls who have believed in, supported and helped me and inso become part of this epic adventure. It truly strengthens my faith in humanity and bolsters my belief in the human spirit πŸ™ŒπŸ”₯Β 

As for the journey, I am now transitioning to a 400 mile bicycle portage over the Bitterroot Mountains to the headwaters of the Missouri River where I will be reunited with my canoe and I can finally start paddling downstream to the ocean. Big thanks to everyone in Lewiston who has helped make this possible (the bicycle + canoe portage), including Tom Eier, Gregory Raye, and other unsung heroes. Thank you all so much for believing in this odyssey and happy trails πŸ’›πŸ™πŸ›Ά
