Let the signing begin! After picking up our canoe at the @wenonah_canoe factory we stopped in Rochester to visit our friend Elton. Elton visited us more times during our #wildernessyear to @savethebwca than any other person. An avid paddler and skier he came in through out the year, often bring others with him along with a few treats. Elton is living in Rochester for several months to receive cancer treatment so he will not be home in Ely on April 20th to sign the signature canoe at our send off celebration so he signed the canoe on top of our car! We can’t think of a more appropriate first signature. Thanks for speaking loudly for the Boundary Waters Elton Brown! Please join Elton in signing the canoe we will tow behind our bicycles from Ely to Washington DC. Follow the link in our bio to find an event near you. Do you have friends in Duluth, Minneapolis, Madison, Milwaukee, Chicago, Indianapolis, Columbus, Pittsburg, or other towns and cities along our route? Please tell your friends we are coming and encourage them to come to a Pedal to DC event, sign our canoe and online petition, support our kickstarter campaign, read our book, and help protect the Boundary Waters from sulfide-ore copper mines being proposed on the edge of our nation’s most popular Wilderness.
