His first eBook, “Missouri River 340 First Time Finisher” documents his family's participation in the 2012 Missouri River 340. The longest non-stop canoe and kayak race in the world, their team, the “Three Boatdacious Blondes and Dad” completed this grueling race in just over 77 hours. Based on their experiences in this race, "Missouri River First Time Finisher" provides first-time paddlers valuable information on equipment, preparation and strategy for the race.
The Missouri River 340 (MR340), known as the longest non-stop canoe and kayak race in the world, is rated as one of the top 100 American adventures by National Geographic. Covering 340 miles of the mighty Missouri River, only two-thirds of the paddlers finish the race. This book provides the analysis and insights paddlers need to prepare for, and compete in, this grueling adventure.
