Successful Headwaters Launch!

My niece Janet and nephew Forest took me to Lake Itasca for a successful launch last Friday.  It was such a perfect day.  The day before the lake experienced severe thunderstorms in the morning and afternoon, large hail, and severe wind.  So I decided to wait a day!  Will be posting more video and still shots of the first four days of absolute solitude here shortly…

    Looking good Neal. Love the peace and quiet of the river as you drift.

    Thanks Wynette. Was so excited that first day I could hardly stand it. By the second day I thought I’d died and gone to heaven. It is so beautiful here. Am so looking forward to drifting south and hopefully meeting up with you!

  3. You’re amazing Neal. What others dream about you actually do. Wish I could have been there for the launch but be assured I’ll connect with you somewhere along the river.

    Godspeed!
