Welcome to the "launch" of the Paddle Pilgrim blog. In a little over two weeks I will launch my kayak in the headwaters of the Mississippi River in Minnesota's Lake Itasca.
You are invited to paddle with me "in spirit" or "in person". I hope to hear from many of you and even see some of you along the way. I plan to post pictures and reflections on this home page on a regular basis. The other pages will give you a better sense of what this journey is all about. Thanks to all who have already shown their support in a variety of ways and for your prayers for safety and favorable weather!
