Over half way there!

Captain Ned arrived at Katfish Katie’s checkpoint at about 9:50pm. He was feeling cold and tired by the end of the night but looking forward to his first hot shower of the trip. He plans to wake up at 4am tomorrow and paddle to Jeff City. He hopes to make it there by 11am.

Thanks again for all of those wonderful comments. I’ll be calling my dad early tomorrow morning to pass along your messages.

180 miles down 160 to go!

  1. Hang in there Cap’n Ned. We are following your progress and keeping you in our thoughts and prayers. Trust that beautiful full moon is guiding you on your way. Be safe – Mike and Marsha!

  2. More than half and ahead of the schedule!! Must not have spent much time vacationing in Miami.

    I might have to start giving more credence to Popeye if a spinach salad can keep body and soul paddling 340 miles.

    Way to go Ned!!

  5. Captain Ned you are an inspiration to the rest of us. What dedication this has taken and I am proud to say that I was around listening to your stories when this all began.
