He Did It!!!

     Congrads to Sean!!!  He pulled into Port Hardy last last night @ 7p.m.  He broke the record by nearly 6 days, ( plus he had 1 layover day in Uculeut).  He paddled straight all day without stopping.  Solely eating power bars and drinking water.  You would have thought that he would have been exhausted, however just empowered.  
     His adrenaline rush carried him through out the night as he drove to the ferry terminal in Nainamo.  He survived eating a Subway sandwich and Rockstar drink arriving at 2:30a.m.  He caught the first ferry to Vancouver.
     He will make his way home now down the I-5.  Projected arrival into SF Bay on Tuesday.  He wanted to make some stops at dealers along the way and I absolutely said "No Way!"  Get home!  He was easily convinced but feels like he should pay visits to his dealers.
     I will be having a welcome home party for him next weekend with friends and neighbors.  I am sure he will be delighted.  I am teaching our daughter to say "Dada driving," now because that is what Sean will be doing for the next 2-3 days.  
     Cannot wait!  Thanks everyone for following his journey.  Hopefully, Sean has inspired others to take a journey and get out and explore.  I know he has with me.  I am off to Mexico next month with girlfriends on a surf trip.
