The last few days I have been traveling - in and out of airports and hotels.  During the trip I have enjoyed the continuing story Downriver: A Mississippi River Canoe Voyage.  Today I reread Chapter 2, which can be found here.  Great stuff!
Please just reply to this thread at SurvivalMonkey to enter the drawing:
