Approximately 40,000 km from Seattle, Washington, USA to Buenos Aires, Argentina. We rode less than 500 km on any major freeways or highways, and over 20,000 km on dirt, gravel, sand or mud.

These are the travel and adventure musings of Alan as he contemplates what the future will bring.
I finished the Murray River from the source to sea in January 2021 (2,500 km). This was done directly after paddling the main sections of the Murrumbidgee River (1,200 km) along with the lower Tumut River, a combined paddle of 4,000 km over two months.
While the recent COVID-19 lockdown caused me to miss the main flow through the upper sections of the system, I was still able to complete the leg between Warwick and St George (900 km). With no water being released from the Beardmore Dam at all, I had to skip repeating the Culgoa River and I will be continuing on from the lower Barwon River to tackle the remaining sections of the Murray-Darling river system, including the entire Darling River (1,400 km) and the lower Murray River (800 km) to the ocean.
I considered starting from Goondiwindi, a 1,000 km paddle down the Barwon River, but I sense starting from Walgett (400 km) or Brewarrina (125 km) to be the most sensible options considering the current flow.
