Hi everyone,

I have been negligent in keeping up with some of you for the last month, as I have been dreaming and planning for some time of taking a long float trip, starting in Calgary, and ending somewhere far away - perhaps St. Louis or New Orleans.

I plan to put-in just beyond the Calgary Weir, in Pearce Estate Park, around 7:00 am. Sunday morning - that's tomorrow.

I don't know how long this trip will last or anything that will happen - it might last a day, or five months. I am taking a laptop, so I may be able to blog along the way, at I may also be taking a cat, and a bicycle.

As you can imagine, I still have a lot left to do, but I hope I can at least keep some of you informed by telephone or email as I go along.
