I’ve been away a few days, and I couldn’t post anything about it in advance because it was a surprise. My four brothers and sister and I planned for several months a three day canoe trip for our dad in the mountains of North Carolina. We concluded today, and I’m back at my brother Jim’s house in Atlanta and will return home tomorrow. We paddled 30 miles or so on the New River from around Jefferson, NC, to just over into Virginia. Pictures and video to come. And yes, he was totally surprised, and very happy.
Update: Some pictures taken by Rob.
Our guide was Terry Kepple of Riverside Canoeing in Crumpler, NC. We can’t sing his praises highly enough. Every detail of the trip was taken care of.
Here are a couple of pictures that they gave us at the end of the trip:
