After cycling from the UK to Slovakia on old bicycles, my friends and I decided to build a raft and float down the Danube river. The raft was made almost entirely of recycled materials: old barrels, discarded billboards, and waste billboard sheeting. Only the rope to hold it all together and a few nails had to be purchased.

You can watch Paddle (the video above) to see our adventure, or you can check out the blog posts from our time as pirates below. Sadly our journey was ended prematurely when we were arrested in Budapest, but we were able to recycle all materials except for the rope.
