For ages 12+. Chesterfield native Sam Perdue has hiked, canoed, and kayaked all over the world, from paddling in Thailand to trekking in the Scottish Highlands. Tied to a day job like so many others, he constantly looks for what he calls “accessible adventures”- point-to-point journeys that can fit in a 2-3 week window to satisfy his thirst for the great getaway without sacrificing his need for retirement security. In April of 2015, Sam and a longtime friend drove their kayaks down to the Florida Keys, pushed off from Key Largo, and paddled 115 miles to Key West. Both adventurous and accessible, the trip fit the required criteria; and while it lacked off-the-grid seclusion, it more than compensated with scenery and paddling diversity. Sam will share his experiences and offer logistical tips for those seeking an alternative to driving the Overseas Highway.
