Friday Morning in the Slate River campsite was a bit soggy but nice and cool. The storm had cooled things down nicely and that made for good sleeping! Stories abounded about the storm and where people were etc. Gradually boats got their stuff together and headed for Cartersville.
I headed for Fork Union and got some boat supplies and met the crew back at the New Canton boat ramp. There was a great chance to take photos of two old train engines that were sitting still waiting to back over the Bremo Bluff train bridge. I took a few photos.
The batteaux gracefully drifted on by as I waited on my crew. They got there a little while later and took on the supplies and were on their way. A canoeist in an aluminum canoe tied on to the rv trailer and hopped on board the Mary Marshall.
Thank you to the Goochland Library for the awesome internet connection. I got that good internet feeling again this am…lol… Andrew Shaw and I made up that term. He got that from the recent Marshall Expedition. When you are on the road it’s hard to get good internet!
Ok so It’s on to get some ice for the last day and pack it into the freezer on back of the trailer on the JRFC rv.
Then I’m on to Columbia to meet the crew. I think I’ll stop by Cartersville and take off this canoe first then wait at Columbia. It’s supposed to be hot again today. I like swimming at Columbia.
