Paddlers to host solo kayak adventurer

The Olympic Peninsula Paddlers invites the community to an evening of outdoor adventure with a presentation by Kitsap native John Kuntz, from 7-8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 13, at Dungeness Valley Lutheran Church, 925 N. Sequim Ave.

In August 2018, Kuntz embarked on a mostly solo kayak trip, paddling the entirety of the Columbia River — all 1,250 miles. Hear his story in words and video as he describes running whitewater rapids, dodging lightning strikes and forest fires, crossing long open water, portaging around 14 dams, enduring a five-mile hike around the U.S. border and more.

The event is free.

For more information, call 360-461-7008, email to info@olympicpeninsulapaddlers.com or visit www.olympicpeninsulapaddlers.com.
