Today: 13.4 miles
Trip: 1171.5 miles
Last night with Tom and Patty Hinton was just marvelous. These are fine, generous people, and I hated to go. I paddled 12.1 miles, roughly four of which was from the shuttle put in out to the river, but the shuttle (by Lonnie again) saved a net of 1.3 miles besides getting me around the worst portage on the Coosa, which is the one around Mitchell Dam. I am now camped on a beautiful high spot above Mitchell Lake. Tomorrow should get me to Lay Dam.
