What a great launch today! Wes and Carol Payne were there to help and snap pics. Jim’s cousin Barney was also there to help and drive the truck back to Sarasota.
As we were getting packed up, Matt Keene showed up. He’s the
first guy to do the CT trail so it was an honor to meet him. Actually his wife launched yesterday to finish her last 400 mile segment.
I will say this- our kayaks are very heavy. But every day they’ll get lighter. Amazing how Jim and I are already thinking on how to modify our “system”.
Camping tonight at top of Perdido Key. We actually tried to camp at Fort Pickens but just couldn’t find anywhere suitable to pitch a tent so we backtracked here.
Please check our Twitter feed since that’s becoming our preferred way to get out quick updates and pics. Also the audio feed.
Time for dinner and Jim’s harmonica lesson.
