Today Trusty enjoyed a local lunch with paddlers Dan and Bethany (D & B). If you’re following their story ( you are aware that they are now halfway to completing their Maine –Key West paddle trip. Needless to say we were thrilled to spend time with D & B and hear just a few of their tales of adventure. Stories of grueling headwinds, compassionate locals and selling the car seasoned our lunch.

Dan’s credentials are stellar. (He is the youngest person ever certified as a ACA Advanced Swiftwater Rescue Instructor.) Bethany, also a certified ACA Instructor is quite a photographer. Check out her photo of Crow Island at and see if you don’t spring up from the desk, sell the car and go paddling.
