The Colonel Angus


I have learned that one of the better things about doing a ‘venture;’ is having that experience as a basis when doing it the second time”(little-circles). Somewhere within the value of comparison; that next ‘time around’ allows more opportunity to savor it all a little more.

My 32 days on the Mississippi a few years back was a satisfying adventure; yet, there’s parts of it I’d like to see and do again…. this time I’d like to add the Tenn-Tom (maybe more ICW) to the lower part of it.

Summer 2019 – not a kayak, but a platform….

I’m thinking a similar craft, same transient look; simple practicality.  Upper Mississippi, the Ohio river and down the Tenn-Tom to Mobile; and if all goes well – the ICW down the Gulf coast to SW Florida…. I got 10 years of barnacles on this rusty soul.

– anyway, that’s what I’m thinking, and the boat name – most likely; The Colonel Angus…. 🙂

    You guys motivated me to try a trip on the Rivers. I learned from you and stole some of your ideas (I hope you don’t mind). I leave from the Twin Cities this Thursday, bound for Cairo, Ohio R to Paducah, Tennessee R to Tombigbee, to Mobile, and on the Apalachicola. I’ll do short updates at
    Thank you for getting me going!
