Hey, George, sounds like you're once again covering a lot of territory. Nunzio and I are holding down the fort back in Wisconsin. One of these days we'll cruise over to your land by the Mississippi and either cut the grass or paint the outhouse or snatch some food out of your garden. I'll no doubt need to check on those pie pumpkins. Finally got the computer hooked up after moving, so I'm back on line. Hoping to head down to Chicago to do some sailing on Labor day. Now that I've tracked you down I'll keep track of your progress. Later, Dakota

Catfish,

We've been reading your posts with great attention. You're currently riding part of the route that we're planning to ride this coming summer (Florence to Yorktown).

We've saved much of your text describing towns, places to eat, nice spots and bad spots. We're inputing all of your comments into our planning process.

However we fear we're going to loose your experiances beginning tomorrow due to this site closing. Could you include us on your email list?

gusrileyiii@hotmail.com

We're grateful for your journal inputs being a part of our planning efforts. We hope to continue to see them.

Thanks
