I first blogged about The Crazy Kayker last week when he announced his plan to kayak the length of the Mississippi this Summer. Well, our friends over at The Oudoor Weblog have gone a step further by posting aninterview with him.
In the first installment of a new section entitled “The Outdoor Enthusiast Next Door” they put the questions to Jacob van der Merwe, a.k.a. The Crazy Kayaker. This is part one of the interview, and Jason answers questions about how he got his nickname, why he loves kayaking, and why he wants to kayak the length of the Mississippi River. His answers are interesting and insightful and give us a nice glimpse at his personality.
It should be fun to follow his progress this Summer, and if I still lived along the Mississippi River, maybe I’d head out to join him for a day on the water.
Update: Part 2 of the interview has now been posted as well.
