Friday, June 5, 2009Today, June 5th, 2009 Margaret left NYC for Reykjavik, Iceland to attempt a solo circumnavigation of Iceland by sea kayak.
If successful, she will be the 2nd solo paddler ever, and only the 5th expedition overall, to successfully circumnavigate Iceland.
After shopping for food in Reykjavik on Saturday, where members of the local kayak club will assist her in getting ready, Margaret will face the biggest challenge of the trip right at the start of her trip: How to get all the food, her 7 books and camping gear in the 3 hatches of her NDK Explorer.
Margaret will update this blog propably every week to 10 days, pending internet access (and motivation to look for one!), stay tuned, and please leave lots of messages for her under "Comments" below.
