Scouting trip decisions

We examined the MRT trail and found some portions unsafe for us old timers so we have created a route that connect the Gulf to the source and touches all ten adjacent states for the spring.  Now we are going to combine boats and biking on the way back down.  We want to capture the true story of the river and still inspire people to bike.  So we will ride the best bike trails of the flyway and catch rides on as many different boats as we can.  We will capture the stories and work to protect our mighty Mississippi.

      Sounds like a reasonable plan. Safety becomes a bigger issue as we age.

      Wisdom takes some time.
