The tides ebb and flow, the rivers rise and fall; the constant fluctuations of life necessitate thoughtful discretion and purposeful direction. The Great River Yukon is there. I am ready (kinda). Though the challenges of life remain steady, the time to paddle the Yukon is now. I welcome you to come dance with me down this free-flowing journey we’ll call adventure.
Stay tuned. Departure May 24. Shouting out a huge thanks to David Lynch, whom I do not know, for recently donating $100 on my website, 1woman3greatrivers.com. Your support will help me overcome my biggest hurdle, finances. You have inspired me. Now, MY desire is to INSPIRE.
Yukon River solo source-to-sea: Llewellyn Glacier, Atlin Lake, BC, to Emmonak on the Bering Sea, AK.
My name is Janet Moreland. I am a Missouri River paddler from Columbia, MO, graduated with a degree in Education in 2012, certified as a middle school Social Studies and Science teacher. I completed the LoveYourBigMuddy solo kayak expedition beginning in April 2013 from the Missouri River source at Brower's Spring, Montana, to the Gulf of Mexico, ending on December 5, 2013. My mission involved education, the environment, and empowering youth, women, and men.
In 2016 I completed a solo source-to-sea paddle of the Great River Mississippi in 61 days. In 2017 I successfully paddled solo source-to-sea the Yukon River beginning at the Llewellyn Glacier on Atlin Lake in British Columbia, ending at the Bering Sea at Emmonak, AK, in 57 days. I am believed to be the first person to ever paddle solo the three longest rivers in North America.
All expedition photos and updates were posted on my Facebook LoveYourBigMuddy Expedition page.

Thanks, Marjorie. Always happy to have you come along!
We have followed you thus far, and will continue to keep abreast of your outings. Don’t know if this will be your toughest or easiest, but we would like to be right by your side with your post. Wishing you the best of luck, but we know that you can handle this. Love and hugs.
Thanks, guys. I’m pretty sure this will be the most challenging, however, the Mississippi’s not for sissies, either. 😉 Just going to go with the flow. I can’t wait. I appreciate your support.
Can’t wait to follow along Sista!
Hey Janet Excited about this next adventure of yours. David lynch was an old river guide, friend, and a former roommate of Rics in sky hi. He had disappeared off the face of the earth for 30 years only to reappear in Big Water Bobs Village in Africa. Last year he ended up at our home for a visit with Ric. Ric mentioned your adventure and gave him your website info. ❤️Karen & Ric
