1000 MILE KAYAK QUEST

 In 2007 I purchased a Necky kayak and set out on a 1000-mile quest. I started logging mileage on all the paddles. I lost interest by 2015 but continued to log miles. I decided this year I was going to complete the quest. 4/3/2021 I finally went across the 1000 mile marker. Here are highlights of my journey with all the places and different kayak types.
