  • North Landing River – Old Pungo Ferry Road, 20050226

    Today, I had no specific agenda except to take my new Aquabound Manta Ray carbon paddle out for a trial run. I was originally planning on doing an excursion on Shipp’s bay, but I really didn’t feel like trudging across 20 feet of mudflat to get to the water, so I opted for a location […]

  • New Year’s Day – Dismal Swamp Canal, Lake Drummond

    Happy New Years! Beautiful day, Beautiful Trip, only regret is that I didn’t get my butt out of bed earlier so that I could explore more of the lake. Reflection: I remember that trip like it was yesterday, paddling the feeder ditch is always a workout, there is a constant flow to keep the water […]

    Smiths Creek 20041231

    Wow! Going through the details on this my first documented trip, the camera I used was a Sony DSC-73 camera with 4 Mega Pixels, that I am pretty sure I still have somewhere. The images, for some reason, would not let me embed the GPS data. Below are my original comments. New Year’s Eve trip […]
