Awesome journey! Wonder how they will get home,will they go back the same way,another 1700 miles ? Kayot (Harris/Kayot) is still in business. They should give these guys a new pontoon for the publicity

Refreshing to see true adventure being carried out. What is that definition of adventure.... when you don't have detailed plans for the return trip?

Nowadays all my friends wanna plan something spontaneous. Sad.

What a great story! Sounds like they got their priorities in order with a stop at the FloraBama.

There is probably enough dope & booze consumed on that trip to last an average person their entire life.

I agree,thanks,Ricky (DonziDog) for giving these young guys a little help with their dream. You and I were their age once,we should have taken the cruise we always talked about,but we are too old now. Good luck guys,live the dream.

Not too fast...

This just might be on my bucket list....

Last week I saw an expose on being a hobo...

Found it to be rather exciting, especially when they profiled a very sucessful Minnesota businessman who stated that when he gets bored, he hits the rails for the summer...and his wife said that she understands his need for freedom and simply let's him go...

For us boat lovers, the pontoon adventure may be a reasonable replacement for an adventure road trip or ridin' the rails...
