Renata Will Soon Be Passing By

A 32-year-old Swedish woman is circumnavigating the mainland United States by kayak, bicycle, and in-line skates. Renata Chlumska's already made it from Seattle to Manhattan, and in about two weeks will be making her way up the coast of Maine.
She will eventually turn left at the tip of Maine, paddle through the Great Lakes, and, if she can get a permit, skim through Minnesota's Boundary Waters Canoe Area.

After that, it's all pavement and two other formidable obstacles: the Rocky Mountains and the immigration service. Her visa expires in September, when she will have about 620 miles to go. [Link]
