      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Row Across the Pacific Ocean, A Guinness World Record

 

Thursday, August 27th, 8PM

The North Face, 1202 NW Davis Street, Portland (503) 727-0200

FREE

 

Join endurance athlete, Erden Eruç as he shares the amazing story of his Pacific Ocean crossing and what motivates his ongoing quest to circumnavigate the world, all under human power. Between July 2007 and May 2008 Erden rowed his 23’ boat across the Pacific Ocean from Bodega Bay, California to Papua New Guinea. His remarkable 312 day solo crossing set a new Guinness World Record for time spent at sea by a solo rower. Erden established the nonprofit, Around-n-Over to educate and inspire school children based on lessons learned from human powered journeys.

If you would like to share with your friends, that I will hold the above presentation soon, that would be great.

 

The presentation will be about our nonprofit, our goals and my row across the Pacific from California to Papua New Guinea. The ocean row is part of my human powered circumnavigation efforts. I stayed at sea a record 312 days between July 2007 and May 2008 to reach the PNG waters, then returned to the same spot in January 2009 to finish the last bit to shore with another 20 days spent at sea. Now my boat is in PNG, and I will return there in September to push the journey across PNG south to Port Moresby, before launching on the Coral Sea toward Australia. I will then bicycle until Perth and launch on the Indian Ocean westward…

 

It should be fun to have the company of you and your friends at my presentations...
