340 Miles!

Well, folks, he made it! At 6:20pm Captain Ned paddled right up to the shore and triumphantly raised his paddle in the air as friends and family cheered him on. It was a beautiful moment followed by lots of hugs, handshakes and high-fives. Afterward, we spend the evening enjoying bbq, cold beer and the company of some really wonderful people.

I”ll upload photos to the Flickr site as soon as I can and I’m sure my dad will have a few things to say as soon as he has a chance to log on. Just wanted to let you all know he made it. 340 miles for Haiti!

    Finishing is everything and very satisfying I would imagine after all the hard work and sacrifice you did to make it happen. It was an UNBELIEVABLE FEAT!
