  1. Wow,

    Nice site, I am section paddling the trail and I live vicariously through the blogs of through paddlers, I wish I had the time to do it myself. Remember that while the trip is a wonderful adventure it is also a lot of plain hard physical work.

    There is a convieniece store on the portage from 6th to 7th lake so you can get a cold soda and a candy bar. I just checked the weather for Old Forge and it looks like you might have a shower but the winds are out of the SSW at 10 mph which will be great. Plan on figuring out how to have the bow woman rig up a sail. Mountain Man Outfitters in Old Forge is a great shop.

    I wish you the best of luck and hope you have a great time.

    Tail winds and Blue Skies,

    Chris Gill

  2. Morgi (& Mahsa) – Am having fun following your adventure. Also watch the weather reports with some trepidation for your safety … appears to be the coolest & wettest July on east coast. Be safe, eat lots! Love you, Kathy
