Flooded Highway? Time to Go KayakingFriday, 31 December 2010
I found this interesting article the other day about Hamish Reid and Paddy Moran who decided to paddling along State Highway 73 in New Zealand after it flooded during a recent rainstorm.
"It is something I have wanted to do for a long time. I have seen it flooded a few times and always thought it would be fun to kayak along the highway," Hamish Reid said.
Though their trip seemed a bit drier then when Kellie Maier decided to go kayaking down Highway 12 in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina back in September 2010.
