4-14-08: Canoe?

OK, I got my tax checks into the mail, did some more research on canoe trails, and I'm ready to go. I spent an inordinate amount of time in a dream store called Sunrift Adventures. They have stock on over 500 canoes and kayaks and everything to go with them plus a bike shop and god knows what else. I'd hate to drop in there after winning the lottery. I'd never get out. Mainly what I wanted and they had was a map and a guidebook for South Carolina river trips.

So tomorrow I head toward the Edisto River (accent on the -toe). Possibly the longest black water river in the US. The black water is from the tannin that comes from all the trees that live knee deep in the water. It makes a great reflector for photos. If all goes well I will canoe down about 123 miles of it so you won't hear from me for a while.
