WaterTribe’s IronBob will be participating in a 5000 mile trek across South America… on foot, by kayak, and mountaineering. This is a fundraising event for cancer, and donations can be made here: http://www.stayclassy.org/events/amazon-5000-for-cure/e8764 or on Bob’s personal donation page at :http://www.stayclassy.org/fundraise?fcid=192628
To learn more about Bob, visit his website at http://www.kayaklakemead.com/ and while you are there, read about his Everglades Challenge entries here: http://www.kayaklakemead.com/everglades-challenge.html You know what I learned about Bob on his website? I learned that I like his style…. this quote should explain what I mean:
“At or near Highland Point, see photo to the right, we found a WWII anti-ship mine; yup, for real. I don’t know why, but I jumped on it a few times to…well I actually don’t know why I would jump on an unexploded mine. Something is awfully wrong with me at times. ”
