Clean Water Challenge 2010- 20 Miles- Weldon Spring CA to Frontier Park, Missouri River, Sept 4th, 2010

Ater the 20 mile race
It was so incredible to go for 20 miles on the Missouri River with a Kayak....I will be back.  I did not place tops, but I placed, and that is something I am proud of.  It was so great to kayak with Ray and see him kick butt with his Necky tourning Kayak...I think a touring kayak will be in the works real soon.  I was so suprised to see Mel, Mom and Shelby at the fishing line...they got some cool shots of me coming over the finish line.  We also really appreciated my sister Jenni coming out to support us and help us get the car from Weldon Spring...I was exhausted after...It was such a big help.  This was something so worth doing...It had been a dream of mine since I was a kid...being able to navigate the big river.....About 1/4 into it, I almost got taken out by an Asian Carp...saw it in the corner of my eye and it hit the aft of the kayak...good deal.  I stayed in the middle of the channel almost the entire trip.
Getting ready to get my land legs
My littlest fan...she gives the race a "thumbs up"

I retired in March of this year and I got back into fly fishing.
There's only a couple places in Alabama where you can fly fish, and as it turns out, I'm about ten miles from one of those places.
I'll be back to check in.
Fish Joke: Fisherman was telling a friend about a monster trout he'd caught that day.
The friend asked, how much did it weigh?
The first guys says, I'm not sure but the picture weighed four pounds.
