    I had not. Thanks. Shared with my kayak-guru friend, Harvey.

    I thought someone set out several years ago to recreate this amazing trip? The story is probably more well known in Europe than in the US.

    Remarkable voyage! I remember another long kayak trip in a German folding Klepper that was amazing too! That voyager crossed the Atlantic from Germany to New York. https://www.adventure-journal.com/2016/1

    Great read. Another one to look for if you're into this sort of reading (if not paddling.) "Paddle to the Arctic" by Don Starkell. Starkell also paddled from Winnipeg to the Amazon, some 12,000 miles. I haven't gotten to that account yet, appropriately titled "Paddle to the Amazon." But Speck's dogged trek beats all.
