A few years ago I discovered a guy who claimed to have canoed from the California straight through the continental United States....ending up off the coast of North Carolina.
He's a former Korean war veteran who claims that most of the waterways in the continental USA do NOT show up on maps...and that there is actually a continuous water way that would allow one to canoe from the coast of California to the coast of North Carolina.
He made me aware of the actual maps he used himself to do this trip...and I have no doubt they are legit as well.
I am talking one continuous canoe trip through various water passages that don't show up on any atlas.
Here was his route.......1. California to Nevada to Utah to New Mexico to Oklahmoma to Missouri to Kentucky to Virgina to North Carolina.......and he did it in 45 days.....he literally canoed across America...the canoe never left the water...and no....there was no tricks or gimmicks....each state was connected to the next via a legitimate yet unknown waterway.
I am going to attempt to duplicate this in June of 2009. I am going to attempt to canoe across America in 45 days......and shock the world in the process. And no...I'm not giving you the exact route for obvious reasons....but the states above will all be included.
Now before you'se "geography experts" and comedians decide to tell me that this trip isn't possible.....let me tell you that the same people who thought the world was flat.....gave birth to children who wrote the current maps they teach in school.
The fact is.....I have access to maps that you don't...and I have no doubt that the guy who actually did this is credible...as I have spent a lot of time with him and his family over the past year. I've seen the proof.
My question is this....besides the obvious ways of monetizing this...sponsors, pr etc......how would you IM'ers jump on this and profit from it?
And keep in mind that this isn't exactly something that ever been publicized before so I figure the exclusivity of it position me quite well.
Looking for any intelligent answers from Warriors.
