crossing the ditch

My "Crossing the Ditch" Buddy

Since being back in Australia I have been catching up with family and friends, but one buddy I was excited to see was James Castrission who in January 2008, with Justin Jones, completed the first kayak crossing from Australia to New Zealand.

I met James in New Zealand when we both first started alpine climbing. We shared some good adventures in the NZ Alps, but nothing compared to this. I hate to brag, but I'm pretty proud to know this guy.

Check out their website at for more details on their adventure.
