Missed 'em

Three boats have come through my area in recent days, but I wasn't able to see or photograph them: the Steven M. Bryan, the Claudia Harold and the Jill P. Harvey. I haven't seen any of them that I can remember.

Maybe on the next trip up this way...

Canoeing back to school

Here's something from last week: Two guys from Parkersburg, W.Va., decided to make their back-to-school trip a bit of an adveture. They canoed from Parkersburg to Huntington before starting classes at Marshall University.

Some of us couldn't do that in our day. I don't want to think about canoeing upstream nearly 70 miles and then up another river to get from my home town to Athens, Ohio.
