If we are going to ‘do’ The Mississippi – a good ‘feel’ of it has to include the ‘upper’ part. I’ve heard about the folks and towns along the way and I’m not so sure where the character comes from – The River or the Folks, so we’ll do a ‘hasty’ search and share what we learn along the way.
The route is set, Upper and Lower Mississippi, 1800 miles worth – June and July 09, now for the ‘Mock-up’
What we’re working with is pretty much a ‘disposable’ boat, some painted scrap wood, a few ideas from others, a beverage, some of our own ideas, frame a shanty – and then.. back off, maybe have another beverage while taking it all in…….
Not really a work of art, but its nice to have time to frame – and sometimes its nice to have a beverage frame of mind – so what to name this albatross? – “Freebird” kinda comes to mind, or maybe ‘The Spirit of Freebird’ – but what else is out there – any ideas?
Will likely haul it just like this and then complete it riverside….., I think.
