Comments:Hi Kevin, SO glad to see you are making it southward, in clear weather, after your tough stretch on Lake Pepin. We were glad that Jamie "scooped you" out of the cold water and weather and brought you home to warm up a bit with us. And we've watched the weather closely since, thinking of you and Kobie and cheering each day there's no snow in the forecast. Stay warm and well and we'll keep following you on-line. Best regards, Jane Lorentzen

Comments:It was a nice surprise to see the two of you paddling on the river yesterday (Saturday)morning. We (Minnesota Boat Club) don't get to many 'non-moterized' boats in the early mornings and we usually never get a chance to talk so it was a very nice break. You should consider rowing down next time. It only took us 1.5 hours to go 10 miles. However, we don't have much room for gear and that could provide to be a bit challenging. I hope the snow didn't freeze you off today and the wind was hopefully at your back (but I know it never is). Safe travels! Jacque MBC Captain www.boatclub.org

I am in a small village called Chicxulub Yucatan and will be watching your progress along the Mississippi. Good luck and enjoy...
