Launching on the Grand!

In the next hour or so, I'm launching for my trial run down the Grand Canyon! We have a great team that will assist me and it should be an incredible two-week adventure. The goal of this trip is to test out systems and try running some of the rapids so I know what I'll be in for when we make the complete descent next year. I will try to send some posts from the river but satellite connections aren't the greatest at the bottom of the Big Ditch. I've also pre-scheduled some other blog posts while I'm away, including a more detailed report on last month's kayaking trip in Mexico. Stay tuned! Erik
