Kayaking is a great outdoors’ recreational activity, but for
Brad Tallent, a.k.a. Captain Patch, of Dayton, he has taken the water vessel riding business to a
whole new level by embarking on a 5,000 mile ride, which is called the Gulf to Gulf Odyssey, and
will cover two countries, six Canadian provinces and 11 states.
Tallent, the avid
outdoorsman who has been kayaking since he was a kid, will share the journey with a friend he met
while hiking the Appalachian Trail in 2012. Tallent is making the journey with Austin Graham,
another hiking and kayaking enthusiast from Baton Rouge, La.
