I got up early but only managed to leave Memphis by 3pm. Thank you Bass Pro! I did meet a very cool river traveler though. He had moored his homemade sailboat in front of my canoe. One look at the boat and I knew I had to meet this guy. Luckily we ran into each other at Bass Pro and had a great conversation. He is working on one hell of a trip! Traveling from Three Forks, Montana down the Missouri, the Mississippi, and then the intercostal waterway to Florida. I’m a little envious. Anyway, his name is Nick Noreous and this is his blog Dogs and Windmills
I paddled 12 miles and camped on the smelliest island yet! Bleh! Some of this mud is just disgusting. It sticks to you like glue and really stinks. Avoid it!
