Jim picked me up at 7:00am in Charlotte and we loaded the yaks. Bob, a neighbor stopped by to give us some
encouragement and told us he wished the pythons were small, the gators had no teeth, and the raccoons were blind! What a hoot.
We arrived in Pensacola about 4:00pm. Traffic wasn’t too bad except around Atlanta. After checking into our motel, we decided to do a recon of the launch site at Big Lagoon State Park. After we found the kayak launch site who shows up? Wes and Carol- former co-workers from Charlotte!!! So nice to see them here. What a big surprise.
Now the plan is to meet at Flora Bama Lounge and Package for some oysters and cold beer. Sounds like the perfect food before embarking on this journey.
