Husband and Wife Team Successfully Crosses North America by Kayak, Canoe and Dogsled

 

Dave and Amy Freeman have spent the past two years working their way across North America by kayak, canoe, and dogsled – and yesterday they reached the Atlantic Ocean. They have finished crossing the continent, from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean but they have about eight months of kayaking left. The adventurous pair are not content to just reach the Bay of Fundy; their final destination is Key West, Florida which they expect to reach in April of 2013.

On Earth Day (April 22) of 2010 Dave and Amy Freeman began the North American Odyssey, a three year, 12,000 mile journey across North America by kayak, canoe, and dogsled. The purpose of their expedition is to highlight North America’s waterways and wild places while actively engaging over 100,000 elementary and middle school students in their journey though their website and school assemblies.

The Wilderness Classroom is a non-profit organization that strives to improve students' core academic skills and appreciation for the environment by introducing students to the wonders of exploration and wilderness travel through live, web-based expeditions and school assemblies.
