It’s a "muscular"river they said.
Then the third (or forth) fisherman that we encountered after the launch at Chattahoochee said: “mind 'dem currents, they git ya!”
So I probably was a bit close when I passed by that red buoy… fortunately it was only a “paint swap” - and my seam is red (and a close match).
Lesson learned. Respect this muscular river.
5 days, 4 nights.
Full moon - with a lunar eclipse.
Mid forties at night, low 70’s by mid day. Trace amount of rain.
5 gallons of water per paddler (potable but sulfury water available on last night).
Whole, fresh food until the final day via Ice Mule coolers.
A few beers, some whiskey and a bit of rum.
And now the pictures:
Sample campsite (sand bars every night except the last)
Yes there were campfires to go with that whiskey and rum. Complete with a lunar eclipse too.
