Exped LLC is a small company and we all happen to be paddlers with a passion for adventure. It saddens us to see trash in the waters and on the beaches where we paddle - whether that's far from home on a remote beach or on our home stretch of water. The stuff is everywhere! It's ugly, dangerous to life, and it needs to be removed. That's what is all about - removing the trash we see from the waters we love.

It's quite simple and our little tagline says it all:

Take only trash, leave only swirls.

When we paddle, we pick up trash in our human powered craft and we invite you to do the same. Spread the word and let's turn our kayaks and canoes into Garbage Scows!

See you on the water.

Another Sammamish Slough paddle, another TV set

Western Washington has seen some heavy rains and elevated freezing levels in the past few days. This has melted a lot of snow in the mountains and flooding has occurred on several local rivers. On my home stretch of the Sammamish Slough the high water cut loose a fair bit of trash, which I was able to pluck from river with relative ease. But tucked away in the brush on the bank of the river was one piece of trash I didn't have room for in the solo boat. As I mention in the above video, I'll head over with the car and pull it out that way. I would really like to meet the person who dumped that thing there...

On a brighter note, it felt good to be on the water. Saw a bunch of birds and a muskrat and got away for a little alone time and a good workout. Such is the magic of the little red canoe.

Spring has sprung and that means more paddling!
