Long shuttle

Posted by on January 20, 2013

The Corps is still releasing at high flow from Allatoona, so I had to admit that I simply could not paddle against that current without undo danger. I paddled about 3 1/2 miles downriver to Johnny and Michelle’s weekend river home and had a delicious breakfast and enjoyable conversation with them. A half mile downriver, I met friends Mike Saunders and Joe Smith, who shuttled me around the stretch below the dam to Red Top Mountain State Park. I am going to paddle on from here and come back in a month or two when these rivers are not in flood to paddle the roughly 56 miles that I have had to bypass.

I will set out from here on Lake Allatoona in the morning, with an estimated 100.7 miles to reach Pine Valley, slightly less if I end the trip at Elvin and Nancy Hilyer’s house. That remains undecided at the moment.
