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 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) and Tumut River, a combined paddle of 4,000 km over two months.
I am now contemplating kayaking the remaining sections of the complete Murray-Darling river system, from the source in the Condamine River to the end of the Darling River at Wentworth (3,000 km). Fives years of drought had made it impossible to traverse the Darling River, but recent rains have brought back some life into the system. Having started this trip in 2020, I was initially stopped due to COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, and now I am waiting on a decent flow that is not hindered by COVID restrictions nor blue-green algae outbreaks. The remaining sections include the Condamine River from Warwick to Surat (800 km) and the Darling River proper (1,400 km).
