Just for the record, when your the guide, that means your the first one in the water......
any and all water. Its a good thing I enjoy algae covered mud holes and swamps, much better than exploring some oxygen starved freezing cold mountain. Lots of stuff hiding under the green ooze.
So the last few weeks have been paddling the Suwannee, Northern Withlacochee, Alapaha, Ichetucknee, and the Wacissa.The first week I had the honor of leading 14 high school kids and a few of their teachers from The Fountain Valley School in Colorado. The second week I lead a great bunch of folks from the National Sierra Club down a heap of rivers and springs.
This week is catch up on paper work and one big day trip to Juniper Springs in the Ocala National Forest.
