    Paddling update

    Friday- Juniper Springs. Leave camp NLT 8:30. It’s a little over 13 miles to the put in. It’s about of a mile to the launch. They have carts to haul your boat to the water. There is a $5.00 per person park use fee. If you would like to have the shuttle service, that’s an additional $6.00 per boat. The river distance is almost 8 miles, all down river. It’s got quite a few bends and some low branches. Plan on getting wet! Bring snacks or a lunch and something to drink. We will find a place to get out of the boats. There are bathrooms and showers available at the park.

    Saturday- Alexander Springs. Leave camp NLT 8:30. The put in is 15 miles from Camp. There is a $5.50 park use fee. No shuttle service is available. We will have to set up our own shuttle. The river distance is about 5 miles, a little more with low water and a little less with high water. This river is an easy float trip. There are a couple of shallow places that you may need to get out of the boat. Bring snacks or a lunch and something to drink. We will find a place to get out of the boats. There are bathrooms and showers available at the park.

    Sunday- Silver Springs. Leave camp NLT 7:45. The put in is about 30 miles away. There is a $3.00 per car park use fee. No shuttle is needed. We will paddle up river and back. The river distance is about 10 miles. It will be a little over 4 miles against the current. The current does get a bit stronger the closer to the spring we get. Bring a lunch and drinking water. There are very few places to get out of the boats. There is a landing at the State Park where we can get out. There are no bathrooms at this landing but a short walk will get you to them. On this trip it is common to see large numbers of monkeys. Keep the noise to a minimum and your eyes to the shore and trees, chances are you will see several troops! Travelling to and from the launch, we will pass near several convenience stores and gas stations, if you need to resupply. Add a few miles to the trip and you can go to Silver Springs for some real stores. There is a bathroom at the put in. This will be a long day!

    There are no bathrooms along any of the rivers. We will practice LNT.

    How goes the dinner bell construction?
    The dinner bell wasn't forgotten. It just took a while to get fully inspired. D1 and I have been busy with it. We forged a while yesterday afternoon, and have a little more to do on it. Instead of going with a plain triangle dinner bell, I incorporated some artistic elements reflective of the FL hang. It's a really cool dinner bell, if I do say so.

    These legendary feeds call for an extraordinary bell!
    Way to step up DM & D1.
    I can't wait to see (& hear) it!

    So many trees, so little time...
    We follow where the Swamp Fox guides,
    His friends and merry men are we;
    And when the troop of Tarleton rides,
    We burrow in the cypress tree.
    The turfy hammock is our bed,
    Our home is in the red deer's den,
    Our roof, the tree-top overhead,
    For we are wild and hunted men.

    I'm bringing my Dutch Oven. No dea what to cook in it besides helping a few batches of MM Breakfast.
    Maybe a couple of good desserts, "like I really need another dessert"

    Ironically, chapter 13, verse 32 of the Book of Mark says, No one knows about that day or hour that the Lord will return, therefore you should always eat dessert first.

    Actually, I added the last part. But the first part is a direct quote. The second part is just a good idea.

    That foil pack southwestern chicken dinner recipe I gave you works good in a DO. you just put all the individual servings in the big pot and cook away!but not wrapped in aluminum of course.
