    I see in the last two pics that you have a cooler strapped to the top of the kayak. Do you have any stability/top-heavy issues when paddling like that?

    I've seen more than coolers on the AT... not from Thru hikers tho... I was part of a party hike that carried in 6 tiki torches, and gallon of fuel for said torches, more libations than you could shake a stick at, a fire grill, fresh vegetables and about 20 pounds of pasta salad. hehehehe We gave a couple through hikers the feast of their trip. It was grand.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    Congrats - I know you were missing that boonie hat you lost. And of course, it's camo - what else would you get? We will have to get a trip list going to make sure we don't overpack and duplicate too much.

    Those hikers musta thought they had died and gone to heaven. Speaking of weight! I carry cast iron dutch ovens on my canoe trips. They make some mean lasagna and awesome biscuits for breakfast. I will treat this trip to some of that good dutch oven cooking.

    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.

    Man, I'm REALLY looking forward to this trip now - Dutch oven cooking. That's why I like canoeing - you can bring everything but the kitchen sink because the canoe does all the heavy lifting. I AM SO IN ON THIS TRIP!

    Give me a city close to where I will be meeting you and I will take a look at the map. How long of a trip are we looking at, a weekend, a week, 12 years? Mule

    Hey Mule, if I take the southern route through Chicago, maybe we could car pool? Have to see how the whole thing shakes out with days and such, but
    anyway to save a buck, right?
