Before we start, let me show you my river today…Oscar Harris said she looked golden. I think she looks like those old Yoohoo Colas! You might think this was a bad day to go kayaking…wrong!! While I would never want to go out on the river during rapidly rising waters or flooding, that was not the case today. The rains in the past 48 hours had given us about an extra 14″ of water, and, of course, it was muddy since it runs off of our mountain. It was also the perfect height for the kayaks to glide right on down the river. No worries about tugging them across rocks!!
We had a busy day, and there are so many layers of people who have got us to this point. However, I’m thinking of the media and their diligence in telling people about Adventure Mendota. They’ve done everything they can to help us succeed.
Here’s the article by Marci Gore at the Kingsport-Times News. It also ran in the Johnson City Press Chronicle.
WCYB sent Kristen Quon out to float the fork with us! We had a good time, and she garnered us a lot of attention.
A few weeks ago, author and reporter Joe Tennis, and I, along with his niece and a friend, had a wonderful time kayaking the North Fork, and he wrote about it in the Bristol Herald Courier.
Thank you to all of these wonderful folks.
