Arrived in Pensacola- Recon Launch

20131101-182844.jpg

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.

    Make sure you have some type of Sunscreen. Long trip but aside from the overnight sleeping on the ground with those Gators around I think it will be great. BG
