Everyone knows that a top-notch support team is critical to the success of any expedition. That’s why we’ve hired the best security duo in the business: Gaya & Jack. Sadly, they won’t be on the river with us this summer. (Jack, in particular, is an accomplished kayaker who has participated in numerous paddling trips to Canada.) But the pair will be working security at the home offices in our absence. That means we can focus on the tasks at hand and needn’t worry that squirrels or birds are ransacking the building while we’re away. That kind of protection doesn’t come cheap, but we feel it’s worth the extra dog biscuits.
