Who am I?
I'm not an avid canoeist, nor fisherman. I caught a fish once when I was ten, and that's about it.
My name is Pat Daley. One year ago I successfully hitchhiked across the USA 3500 miles from Florida to California with the help of 50 random strangers in cars.
I filmed a full series and uploaded it to Youtube. Since then I have continued to create travel and adventure related content during my travels through Hawaii & Asia.
It's time for a new adventure that will push me out of my comfort zone.
What am I doing?
I'll be canoeing approximately 2600 miles from New York City to Mexico via the Intracoastal waterway.
I will be filming weekly episodes for my Youtube Channel.
When am I starting?
Monday August 1st, 2016
How will the money be used?
In order to film this unique journey in a better way than I filmed my first series, I will need to upgrade my filming equipment as some of it has failed on me after much use, or is insufficient for filming a canoe trip of this magnitude.
I deeply appreciate any donation made - I hope to make it seem as if you are in the canoe with me :)
I'll be paddling south along the coastlines of these states:
Upon reaching Ft. Pierce, FL - I will cut through the state via the Okeechobee waterway and exit at Ft. Myers, FL.
I will continue north from the gulfcoast along these states:
I will officially end my journey at the border of Brownsville, TX & Tamaulipas State, Mexico.
If you live along this route on the coast - let me know so we can meet up - or you can even join me in my canoe for a bit.
Has anyone ever done this before?
To my knowledge, no one has ever completed this trip in a canoe. (or even a kayak.)
If they have, they never recorded it.
How long will it take?
It is hard to accurately predict but I'd say this will take 5-6 months.
What do I get for donating?
$10 - You get your name in the credits of an episode on Youtube
$25 - You get a limited edition True Transient t-shirt with a brand new canoe design.
$50 - You get some True Transient Stickers, the T-shirt, plus a Personal Shoutout from my canoe in an episode on Youtube --trust me I'll make it epic.
Why are you doing this?
To challenge myself, test my limits, and share a unique journey with others. If I can inspire others to test their limits, well hey that's great too :)
I would like to thank everyone for supporting this journey, this will be a huge challenge for myself & I hope to bring you along for the ride by filming this in the most epic way possible.
