Paddling for Plastic

Below is the public link to photos Joy and I took from our daytrip from the Driftway, North River and the Spit on May 17th. The trip was posted on the Wild Turkey forum under "Upcoming Trips". We had such a great day on the water, and there is plenty of plastic left to be picked up. We wil...

Paddling Sanibel Island, Florida

In April I had a chance to connect with Wild Turkey Dave Briggs who now lives in Florida year round. We had planned an overnight kayak/camping trip in the Sanibel Island - Pine Island - Captiva Island area. The bugs can be horrendous in Florida at that time of year, so we decided that primitive camp...

Re: Watertribe Event in Florida

Thank you for sharing your Watertribe story, Dave. Very interesting. I can’t imagine kayaking 62 miles in a day, and I think I would have been scared to death kayaking solo in the dark only helped by a GPS for navigation. You are a legend. Hats off to you for an amazing accomplishment. FYI. I watche...

Re: Thursday Dec 7 6:30 pm get-together

So I called 99 just as they opened this morning, and they told me they did not take reservations at that time of day. I told them that this contradicts what I was told Monday- when they told me they only make “same day” reservation. Long story short, I think I was able to talk her into reserving a t...

We are gauging the interest for a Thursday Dec 7th 6:30 pm get-together at a restaurant near the Braintree split. Since we are not paddling it can not be called a PPR, but maybe just a R? I did not pick a specific restaurant, but will do that after seeing what kind of interest we are getting. Restau...
