For those that missed it, Lonnie Bedwell and four other blind kayakers paddled the 226 miles of the Colorado river through the Grand Canyon a couple months ago! This was featured on the Today show on Thursday, November 29th. Also, Travis Fugate, who originally began boating on Elkhorn creek and one of two original members of team river runner Lexington was there also. You can view some of this on "five blind kayakers on the Grand Canyon " on Google. Great stuff for the BWA 's "honorarary " member and an Elkhorn paddler!!!!

BJ,

I missed it but my dad saw it and sent me a text about it. I told him we knew Lonnie and he thought that was super cool. Apparently the show made quite an impression. Easy to see how with kids like Lonnie involved in yet another amazing paddling feat.

Any chance you will be around Hartford today around 3 p.m. and can give me and Amelia a hand with a Shuttle? And, you should come to Nippur and hang out this weekend. Bring your drum.
