I also plan to incorporate hard shell kayaks (as primary expedition boats) as well as the folding kayaks into this my largest expedition to date. I plan to paddle from Ninety mile beach around Cape Reinga to Auckland in the Trak kayak and then change into a larger faster hard-shell boat there. I am doing this as I need to carry alot more gear than the Trak allows me to carry, plus with hopes of filming alot of the trip, the need for a rudder or skeg to allow for easy camera use is a bonus!
The Trak will still play apart in more than just the first leg of the trip. I hope to have guest paddlers join some legs and the Trak kayak works well as portable kayak to those adventurous souls who wish to join for a part of the trip.
So the idea becomes written, and the intent is set!
