Taking a rare "0" day, meaning no paddling today. Great evening of entertainment last night. Most of all enjoyed the company of the Keens and their air conditioned home!
Now that I have had a chance this day to dry out "stuff" want to take a moment and reflect on the background, reason for the Cruising for a Cure Expedition in the first place.
In the spring of 2004 I paddled from my birth place, Lickskillet, Kentucky to Memphis via Whippoorwill Creek. Followed the Red into Tennessee and back into Kentucky on to Lake Cumberland into Kentucky Lake. Down the Ohio and on to Memphis via the Mississippi. This trip left me with a burning desire to continue my pursuit to expand my horizon exploring other outdoor long distant paddle, bicycle and hiking expeditions.
Considered hiking the Appalachian Trail until I found out the oldest through hiker to complete the journey was 82 years ago. Since I was only 80 last year decided to wait couple years.
I'm the Grey Beard Adventurer. But you can call me Dale Sanders, and these are my stories.
