As many of you know, in about a week, I am undertaking a canoe trek across the state of South Carolina and filming the journey for SCETV, South Carolina Public Broadcasting. In addition, ETV will be producing and maintaining a video journal of my trip, real-time at:

http://www.riverventurejournal.blogspot.com/

Over the next 40 days or so, periodically check in to this site monitor my progress (or lack thereof). Yes, there will be fishing-related segments and a lot more. I have been asked by many of you when this was happening. Well, its about to happen and during this next week I'll be preoccupied with preparation and planning, so I won't be around here much. Keith, sticky this post if you like - at least for the next 40 days.

The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.

Advice from previous trips.

#1 Paddle away from water moccasins!
#2. Gore-Tex Strom Proof Rain Gear
#3. Fleece/Polypro no cotton.
#5. Coppertone Sport Sunblock 50
#6. Bug Spray... Deet is bad for you but it sure keeps the bugs off.
#7. Thermarest Camp Pad 2' is pretty comfortable..
#8. Invest in good waterproof bags!

I'll think of more, but you probably know all this stuff anyway....

Actually, I am praying for rain, as the rest of us all are. Our fish need it and the extremely low water in the Broad River really concerns me right now. There is a good chance I will be dragging that canoe for most of the 100 miles from NC to Columbia - before I encounter any real water. Bring on the rain!

When I was with SDE I worked closely with SCETV.  Knowitall.org is a great site for kids, and I'll forward your blog to some of my 3rd grade teachers who cover SC History, Geography, and Culture.

Thanks for the heads up Richard. Be safe and I hope the trip goes well. We'll be watching.

you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking, racing around to come up behind you again, the sun is the same in a relative way but you're older, shorter of breath and one day closer to death - Waters, Gilmore, Wright and Mason

Dang Richard, get your priorities in order. I'd have left the cameras before I left the rod.  ;) Somebody get that man a fly rod!
