Day 100 of my 100 Day Paddle Challenge (2019)

James Ryan


Day 100 of my #100DayPaddleChallenge was absolutely incredible!!

Special thanks to the entire crew out of Buffalo, NY (Carl, Nath Alie, Jojo, Richard and David) for travelling up to the Great White North so that we could all paddle together on this momentous occasion. We had a tonne of fun together playing around on the ice shelf, and paddling out on a lumpy Lake Ontario – the perfect way to end this crazy year-long journey.

Thank you to Ralph the Gatekeeper, and John from the Niagara Rowing Club for allowing us access today down into Jordan Harbour.

Thank you to my family for believing in me and encouraging me and putting up with me. It doesn’t go unnoticed.

Thank you to Jamie Bingham and the rest of the staff over at Outdoors Oriented in St. Catharines, for teaching me and supporting me throughout all of this. If not for this amazing store, I probably never would have discovered my love for kayaking or met so many incredible people.

Thank you also to my friends in real life, as well as my friends on social media for your kind words and your positive energy. I love you guys!

And special thanks goes out to Delvia – for sticking with me every step of the way, keeping me safe, and getting us out of all sorts of sticky situations. I couldn’t have asked for a better kayak. #PerceptionExpression15

Well…. what else can I say?¬†It’s been a hell of a ride! Thank you all so much for following along and being such a huge part of my path to self-discovery. Feeling really blessed and grateful right now.
Thank you and take care.
