Krusty,
Good to see that you are still out paddling and enjoying new rivers. Enjoyed reading your trip report from last year.

I enjoy reading any trip reports from John Depa, here is one he posted for a Suwannee River trip.

Reflected from his light were the sparkling eyes of a small creature. Casting the light back and forth we saw that there were a tiny set of eyes about every square meter, sparkling back at us like tiny diamonds. We were surrounded, and it was a little bit creepy. Close inspections revealed that they were spiders.


Was fun to find this old trip report on a cold March day. Fun little read. I liked the spider part. I hammock camped in the Mexican jungle once and had a similar experience. Oh look, spider eyes! Oh look, more spider eyes. Holy shit, that's a lot of spider eyes....

Made me glad I wasn't weirded out by spiders and also glad that I wasn't an insect.

Thanks guys.
Currently in Florida. Plans A, B, and C, rivers coming down from the north, all have unfriendly high water so I've headed on farther south. Suwannee is high but doable, and falling. Will spend some time on it on the way back north.
Keep on keeping on.
