Any old timers remember Verlen Kruger?
Author Last Post

Are there many of us around who still remember Verlen (not Warren, as the linked CL post calls him) Kruger and his Ultimate Canoe Challenge? I think he stopped in Seattle in 1982 or 8? When he continued on his journey south, a big contingent of local paddlers (likely including Rog & Diz Marquardt, Lee Moyer, Bob Morris, Judy Moyer and others?) escorted them out and sent them on their way with a raised paddle salute.

This post came up in a canoe trading site on Facebook. Merely sharing it for general interest for us old fogies. ;-) It's Verlen's custom boat from a later endeavor of the late 90s. This collection of (likely overpriced but she'll figure that out) memorabilia took me way down memory lane.
