Please check this schedule to see where and when you can help with kayaking or overnight logistics. Scroll down to see yellow shading where support kayakers and lodging are needed. Towns named are only possible lodging points – the mile markers are what Mimi will swim from and to each day. If you live within 10-15 miles of an end point, please consider offering lodging.
