A good freind of mine named Rod Wellington from Ontario, Canada wrote a nice story I thought I would share. Here is the link, enjoy.


Rod is an adventurer and has just completed a 3,800 mile Kayak journey down the entire Missouri/Mississippi river from source to sea. Amazing person!

Thanks Maddog. You know I consider Your expertise as a guideline if possible for me. This winter was not so cold, more wet than snowy, but it lasted for a long time. A few days with sunny and warm wheather last week, now it is cold again. (about 40F). But we have a warm house and good clothing. The Best to You and Yours Maddog!
