Most of you guys should have your rewards in hand by now. There were a few cyanotypes that I needed to make again because I am being a bit picky about what goes out. I want to make sure everything is high quality.
The last cyanotypes are made and ready to go in the mail on Monday morning.
Tshirts will go out then too (for those who are waiting).
If you have NOT claimed your reward; if you have NOT filled out the survey; then this is your last chance to do so. You backed this project. You deserve your reward.
I am very pleased to announce that I have been invited on another Grand Canyon trip. The good folks at LiquidLogic Kayaks asked me to join them on their annual winter self-support trip through the canyon. We will all be paddling 10' kayaks with all of our gear inside; no raft support. I call it a "comfortable" minimalist trip, because the boats we will be paddling (Remix XP-10) seem to be able to carry the equivalent of two large mountaineering packs. It's not luxurious, but it makes winter camping possible.
Who knows how much photography will come out of this trip (because of limited space). But, getting back into the canyon earlier than I thought I would be able to, is an exciting prospect.
Now for the plug for LiquidLogic Kayaks...
They are a great company, that makes exceptional boats. I have been involved with a few different kayak companies in the past, and have seen many manufacturers come and go. These guys have made their name by offering good boats, made in the USA. Their sister company, Native Watercraft make nice boats for still water.
If I did not like their boats, and the people who make them, I would just say "thank you" and move along. These guys are special. If you are in the market for a boat, then check them out.
From this point forward, most updates, news, whatever will move over to my ARTandWATER blogs. There, you can follow all the art projects (including this one) as well as the whitewater-specific side of this upcoming Grand Canyon trip.
I want to thank each one of you again for your show of support.
