THE 12 STEPS OF FLORIDA AQUAHOLICS
STEP 1 Realize that I am powerless over my KAYAKING ADDICTION.
STEP 2 Accept that the SUWANNEE RIVER is greater than myself and can restore my sanity.
STEP 3 Turn my will over to the care of the WEKIVA RIVER.
STEP 4 Make a searching and fearless exploration of the EVERGLADES.
STEP 5 Admit to others when we are lost in the 10,000 ISLANDS.
STEP 6 Patiently wait for God to restore the KISSIMMEE RIVER to its original path.
STEP 7 Humbly ask God to remove the OFEFENOKEE SWAMP from Georgia and place it in the care of Florida.
STEP 8 Float all rivers I have ignored — including the WITHLACOOCHEE RIVER.
STEP 9 Trust my Guides on the BIG BEND SALTWATER PADDLING TRAIL.
STEP 10 Make a visual inventory of sights along the OCHLOCKONEE RIVER.
STEP 11 Seek through prayer and j-strokes to improve my understanding of the WACISSA RIVER
