Nothing like a 4 day work week to get back into the grind after a week off. Left work at 4 om Thursday for a wedding in New Orleans on Saturday. Made a few stops on the way.
First stop, Ichetucknee River. Which has a new ADA ramp (I assume) at the Last Takeout.
Or First Put In, from my reference. The area at water's edge has also been modified. There used to be steps at 90 degree angle in addition to the ones above. And, a platform, which, depending on water level, allowed easy launching. Not easy now. I now launch beyond the far edge of the stairs.
Headed up the Ich just after 6:30.
Midpoint landing. Likely turned back here, or shortly thereafter. As it is on my left, must have been thereafter.
Landed just after 8.
At the Days Inn, Marianna, FL, 11:30. 10:30 Central
I bought a used kayak in March, 2005 and began sending tales of trips to friends and family. That November, generous friends bought me a camera, Canon Powershot 400, so pictures were added to the tales. January 2007, I was able to add underwater photography, thanks to one of my brothers. I am now on my sixth camera. As of May, 2014, I have a Powershot 115 IS.
When I began kayaking in 2005, I would search the Internet for paddling information, trip reports, and practical advice. I hope this site adds to your knowledge and enjoyment.
My home in Winter Park, FL,north of Orlando,allows easy access to both coasts and all the spring fed rivers in between. Many Tales are day trips. No overnight stay required.
