    I have been watching with some jealousy and admiration. Not sure how one man could enjoy so much solitude, then I remembered that your grew up in a family of four women. 🙂 I know them and after some serious contemplation, it becomes clearer.

    Have a blast! You deserve it. Be safe in your travels!

      Hey Mike – I understand. I remember going to Haz-Mat tech class at the time one of my class reunions was scheduled…. always a tough call. I guess its about learning to make a decision; and then moving on. thanks for considering – maybe next trip

    Great site. Have you witnessed dgredation from the Dan river coal ash spill? I am looking for water front property near the damaged spill area. How bad is it?
    Are the some lakes that should be avoided?

      Have only heard the same (likely) as you in the news, hope to paddle some of the Dan in the spring – buy Don, it’s just water under the bridge.

    Hello Tom!

    Lets go on a river trip!!!!! Well since I did climb a mountain it’s all down hill! 🙂

    Kilimanjaro, with its three volcanic cones, Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira, is a dormant volcanic mountain in Tanzania, the highest mountain in Africa, and the highest free-standing mountain in the world at 5,895 metres or 19,341 feet above sea level!
    This Gallery is from the 9 day western approach route and covers 55-60 miles.

    The CO mountains won’t be a problem…it’s that extremely windy, monotonous, sunflower filled, baking heat of Kansas that breaks souls. Welcome “bac” Janis.

    Do you have any waypoints for camping areas along the river that are not campgrounds or river camps?

      Which river? In the river adgenda for the Suwannee, Ideas post many of the boat ramps are noted; camping is ok

    Hello, just a quick note, under the Suwannee River Mileage, trip ideas, the Alapaha Rise/Shelly Run is at mile marker 135.6. We manage the Wilderness Trail and had a call today, someone reading your blog and telling me about this Shelly Run at rm 153.6. Ha Ha took some work to figure out what he was talking about! Glad to see you are out there living the life!
