Camping out at Mountainman Outfitters
Ahoy! Matey's (i've had two cups of coffee today...)

Ok so while i'm here and have internet connection i will say a bit more.

Had a great day off yesterday and this morning in Lake Saranac Village! It's a pretty cool little town and everything we need is in walking distance! I'd like to thank the Hotel Saranac for their hospitality and letting us store our canoe there! The Pequod had such a nice rest! We'd also like to thank St. Regis Outfitters for the yoke pads and all their help in getting us reset for our next part of our adventure! They were so helpful!! Also it was nice to meet Anne from Raquette River Outfitters wish we could have stopped by her store and supported!! (if you're ever in New York and need some outdoor/canoeing equipment we recomend all of the outfitters we've been to!)

We were really excited to find a natural food store as well! Delicious dried soups and beans and Quinoa oh and some flax seed for good fiber! Yum Yum!!

Well we'll be heading off down the Saranac River today, got a few rapids down river the next few days! (yay...i'm

not sure which lake it's hard to tell in thumbnail form which picture it is...we'll give better captions later
not so sure about those, but should be adventurous right? p.s. this is whitny not brian!) But Dave i think is his name from St. Regis gave us some good tips and whatnot about the river! (sorry if i got the name wrong)

Just talked to Carolyn Wolfe and will be meeting up with her and Trevor in Plattsburg in a few days!! So i suppose we will be taking some time off there as well! But looking forward to a visit with an old friend!

I hope you are all doing well at home and wherever you are! We miss you and can't wait to see you!!

I'm going to try to put some pictures on here...

Ta-ta for now!

Plattsburgh = Lake Champlain
fyi... Lake Champlain almost got designated as the 6th great lake. We often take the ferry across from plattsburgh - about a 10 minute sail and sometimes we go across at Port Kent which takes about an hour and brings us to down-town Burlington. Thanks for the phone call. love and prayers uncle bob and vivian
