Bob Bellingham’s 1,600 mile journey on the Missouri River in an Eddyline Shasta

Posted August 22nd, 2012

After 1,600 miles I feel I should say something about my experience so far in the “Barbara May” (the kayak, not the wife.) I am not sponsored by or linked to Eddyline the manufacturer of the “Shasta” in any way so the following is my unbiased appraisal. I purchased the kayak solely on the recommendation of Andy Bugh who undertook the same journey last year and then continued on down the Mississippi River to the Gulf of Mexico. Firstly I have to say that I can’t imagine a more suitable boat for me to undertake this voyage. I am not an experienced kayaker and started this journey after only a few hours of paddling practice on the Swan River back home in Perth.
