Predictably New York

Quick update on Daniel Alvarez, the Florida man who spent 9 months kayaking from Minnesota’s Northwest Angle to Key West, got there and decided to kayak back to Minnesota.

Today, he announced he’s done with saltwater. He reached New York City.

He couldn’t very well paddle back up the Mississippi River (against the current and all), so he kayaked up the East Coast to New York, and he’s now heading up the Hudson River. He’ll hit Lake Champlain, the Ottawa River, Lake Huron and then Superior.

He’s still got a long way to go, and he’s being chased by winter. The days start getting shorter next Friday.

He writes daily on his blog, Predictably Lost (two weeks delayed).
