Final Trip Stats

Posted by Greg on July 30, 2008

Following are my trip statistics. I’ll also put a gear list together, along with a list of what gear worked and what gear didn’t make the grade.

Total distance paddled: 2102K (1306 miles)
Daily average: 60.05K (37.3 miles)
Longest day: 93K (57.8 miles)
Shortest day (aborted crossing of Trinity Bay): 27K (16.7 miles)
Total days: 44
Paddling days: 35
Weather/Rest days: 9

Many hundreds of whales, dolphins and blowspouts! Two sharks and two sunfish. And of course, and most important, too many life-changing memories to list…

  1. Dominique Said,

    Hi Greg, congratulations… After 1 1/2 month on their fishing grounds, what about the people, especially those living in remote outposts? They have a reputation for being a very welcoming bunch…

  2. Jeff Fabiszewski Said,

    Well done on the Newfoundland expedition, you probably have lots of material for writing a book. And I would read it “in a van down by the river.” LOL.

  3. Michael Bradley Said,

    Awesome Greg! I hope you can put together another slide show as good as the Iceland one once your paddle cools down! You could call the presentation ‘Blazing Paddles’! I’ll try and get a front row seat at Delmarva this year. Congrats!

  4. Stevie Said,

    Congratultions. In addition to the obvious trip reports, I’ll bet you have some pretty thorough gear reviews:-)

  5. Ken and Mariam Said,
