—Steve Isaac – Chief of the WaterTribe
I really enjoyed reading your book. Great insight into the Ultimate Florida Challenge and what it takes to succeed.
I think that most Watertribers will relate to it fully and realize that all of us who paddle small boats on adventures have more in common that you realize, especially our view of life and adventure. On several of my own long trips I have written in my notes about living life fully, and in the present; wave by wave. Rod echoes the same sentiments in his book.
Several times I laughed or said "Yup", as Rod shared something that mirrored my own experiences, thoughts and feelings.
Very enjoyable story, and as a Florida resident I especially enjoyed all of the historical information!
Rod's thoughts on paddling through "concrete jungles" versus the beauty of the Everglades also struck a chord in me. We often travel through such beautiful, remote areas, that perhaps many of us have "culture shock" when exposed to loud noise, huge crowds of people, impatient boaters and other trappings of "civilization". I know that I do.
Rod has written two books: Racing Around Florida and Racing to the Yukon. I'm halfway through the first and can't put it down. Spot on paddling advice, historical footnotes, beautiful quotes and a heartfelt passion that tells us why we do this.
