The Low Down

Here’s the Latest Update:

Jim went for a follow-up visit at Flagler Hospital in St. Augustine, FL. this morning. The doctor ordered an X-ray to make sure there wasn’t an insect stinger still inside the wound. That turned out negative. Afterwards, Jim got the green light to continue paddling with some cautions. The doctor said this is still a serious infection that must be monitored. Everyone at Flagler Hospital has been remarkable.

Come Hell or High Water

We mapped out a paddle schedule last night. Our goal is to finish in Fort Clinch at the Georgia/Florida border around noon on Saturday March 1, 2014. We will land at the north end boat ramp in the park (N30.6958 W81.4600).

Our friend Gus has offered to assist us with shuttling during these last few days similar to what we did in the Keys. Gus has been nothing short of amazing in his support. Words can’t express our gratitude.


We’d also like to thank Gary LeVeille for all his help in St. Augustine. He drove Jim to the urgent care and hospital. Then took us to eat and get supplies. That means a lot!

Advance Around,

Marc and Jim

    Ooooh, an everglades trip. A friend and I are planning one for 2015. Maybe we’ll see you on the water 🙂
    So glad Jim got the green light to keep on paddling. Sure has been an adventure!!!! Amazing…
    Have stood right in the same spot with a picture from 1973 of the oldest little school house…still looks old. 🙂
    Take care and many blessings for safety, health, success. Paddle ON!
