Daniel Alvarez spent more than a year kayaking from Minnesota’s Northwest Angle to Key West, then turned around and kayaked back again, reaching the promised land — Minnesota — last October.
With a little time to reflect on his journey, he’s been featured in this just-released TEDx talk at Florida State.
About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
