    I follow the blog but have never left a comment. I just wanted to let you know I appreciate the work you put in to document and share your adventures. I managed five floats in 2012. Your blog was helpful in researching new rivers–or new stretches on old old rivers–but was also motivation ot get off my butt and get on the water. Thank You!
