Hello!

I am planning a trip from Vermont to Paris via NH, ME, NB, NS, NL, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Russia, eastern Europe -> Paris. For COP21, the United Nations Climate Conference in Paris this December.

I would absolutely love any advice on:
1. Gear! I'm starting from square one, pretty much. All words of wisdom appreciated
2. Sponsors/funding! Any advice on who to approach for any of the gear I need or financial support? Crowdfunding page here: crowdrise.com/climatejourney
3. Teammates! Get in touch if photography, film-making or digital story-telling is your thing and climate justice is why you get out of bed in the morning
4. Route planning! Have you ridden any of these sections? Advice for me?
5. Ideas! Know of people or places along my way that I should not miss? I would love to visit them

You can check out my website at climatejourney.org

Thank you so much!

Hi Morgan,

I can give you advice on the Maine, NB, NS portions, as we did a trip this way 3years ago.  How about at the Pipeline Pilgrimage this weekend?  Yup, funny coincidence, it's Rob from Portland who you just offered a ride home!

This sounds like an amazing and important journey and I can't wait to hear more!

Talk soon,

Rob
