OWLS HEAD, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Deb Walters has made several journeys in her kayak that have tested her physically and mentally, but none will take as long, or take her as far, as the one she is set to embark on.
"When I tell people that I am going to kayak from Maine to Guatemala, they say you must be completely nuts!" she exclaimed.
Walters will be leaving from Portland's East End Beach on the afternoon of July 13th and hopes to travel the 2500 miles to Guatemala over the course of the next year.
"That's what I am hoping to be able to do, just by keeping at it a little bit, paddling a little bit each day," said the 63 year old grandmother.
"This is something I'm voluntarily doing, as opposed to the families that live in the garbage dump," she explained.
