    been out of touch on your progress for a few days… don’t know if you’ve crossed Trinity Bay or not… at Hant’s Harbour (my summer place), it’s blowing hard for 2 days so perhaps not.

    Terrific accomplishment, all KNL members in awe. Hope to see you again before you head off.

    best & paddle safe,

    HI Greg – Let me recommend a visit to Alison’s place just below Hant’s Harbour! Great people, great hospitality, especially after another one of your long crossings!
    Hi Alison – glad to hear you’ve met Greg. Great guy!

    2 paddling days left..
    your trip went by so fast,
    i hope you have a new trip plan soon
    for us to folow from home…
    now you must plan a visit to here in israel,
    for some fun sufing first,
    and for some worm worm (hot) sun and water.
    ciao now

    Seems like anything less than 50 miles is a lazy day eh? Is Freya’s pace contagious or do you have a date in Florida? I can hardly wait for the book and your reflections throughout this journey around such a big rock.
    Cheers Tom
    PS Maligiaq is 2008 Qajaqman of the Year, and I hear he has some travel plans maybe….

    Hi Greg, Hi Michael,

    Yup, met Greg at KNL retreat year before last – bunch of us shared a cabin. We had fantastic clinics with Greg & Freya. Thanks for glowing report on the Hants Harbour hangout… hope more paddlers come by… I’ve been finding more caves and paddling with fin whales recently.

    Greg – understand there’s going to be quite the flotilla meeting you in St. John’s. We remain in awe.
