Exploring Alabama’s Oldest City!

Exploring Alabama’s Oldest City!

20141120_103355Over the past few days, besides getting my gear ready for my upcoming adventure, I’ve had the opportunity to explore Mobile Alabama and meet several people.  It’s definitely an honour to be staring my next adventure right here, an area rich in history!

Located in the Gulf of Mexico and founded in 1702 – Mobile is Alabama’s Oldest City! It was the Spanish explorer Alonzo Álvarez Pineda who first explored the area in 1519.  It’s also the birth place of Mardi Gras, the oldest annual Carnival celebration in the United States, since1703!  This was fifteen years before New Orleans was founded.

Here’s something I want to do…. the Underground Railway Bicycle Route. There’s a bicycle route you can take to explore the path.  Hmmm…. this might have be my next adventure!

I’ll be on a journey of living out of a kayak for the next 15 months as I paddle The Great Loop. I’ll be covering between 8,000 – 12,300km of water during this time.

As I use my kayak as a form of transportation, I will continue to blog about the places and  people I come across.  However, if you really want to know what it’s like to live out of a kayak for the next 15 months, be sure to checkout my kayaking adventure at OCJ – The Great Loop
