Comments: Canoe Trip

Great pics at the spoon and blade.

Glad you made it down and had a good time.

It was a float by design. The trip was called the Exploration of the Spoon (or Amaquonssippi). The boat you were in and your partner are geared more towards freighting and supplying hunters, settlers, and the military. Whereas those of us who gear ourselves to be hunters would have been looking for game, or maybe mapping parts of the river come back and utilize later.

The only thing that has me nervous about next year is the crossing of the Illinois River from the mouth of the Spoon to Havana.

Petey... yea, it was a freight canoe, but thankfully we had it or Jim would have had to swim!

Jim. No problem, it was a pleasure having you along. You told some good stories and helped keep us entertained. I'll get that picture disc for you.
