Another post and pictures of our own soon – I promise, next week I will head to the lake and remove the ‘bird’ and bring her home – then final prep, maintenance, thinning and a next to final cut of any unnecessary weight/accessories/baggage.
I have taken on lots of extra work over the past few months, this has dissapated my focus and posting as I would like – it has also left me somewhat ‘burnt’ and ‘frayed’ from all the hours – so I’m eager to blend back into the mindset of that lazy current – 26 days to go (on the river May 29th) and then we can kick it all into ‘neutral’
we can ‘cast our lines’ – then spend at least 57 days/nights, coasting in ‘neutral’ on and along ‘The Great River, ‘ Minnesota to Nawleans our goal…………..
so just a short note, I’ve not forgotton this very large part of it – there will be plenty of pictures (our own) and words each day when we begin, promise.
– the moment can’t get here fast enough.
