"I am looking at (2) 13' Old Town Castine Touring Kayaks and am wondering if $800 is a good price (paddles as well)? They seem to be in descent shape, but will look in person of course! Has anyone had problems with theirs? I'm sure these are about 10 years old. Thanks!"

"Canoeing the Mississippi: Cancer Alley to the Gulf (Part 2)"
Posted: Oct 8, 2012 at 9:30 pm
My homework on the Mississippi River prepared me to
battle for the last week of paddling. The industrial thoroughfare of
“Cancer Alley” concentrates at Baton Rouge, and funnels vessels through
250 miles of agricultural wasteland...
"Canoeing the Mississippi: Thunderstorms"
Posted: Oct 6, 2012 at 4:45 pm
Dark ominous thunderclouds are forming behind us.
You can smell the salt. We’re so close, only a few miles left in our
two-month trip. Streaks of jagged light are off in the west...
"Canoeing the Mississippi: Cancer Alley to the Gulf (Part 1)"
Posted: Oct 5, 2012 at 11:53 am
My eyes just wouldn’t shut. After twelve hours of
paddling through the Mississippi River’s infamous “Cancer Alley,” my
body ached for rest, but the distractions made sleep illusive. It was
Day 56 of our trip and we lay a mere two days from the Gulf of Mexico...
"Canoeing the Mississippi: Night Paddling"
Posted: Oct 4, 2012 at 12:05 am
Cancer Alley. After rounding the corner before
the port of Baton Rouge, we see titans on the water. These large
behemoths of transport, four times the height of tugs, clog both sides
of the river, making our hearts skip a beat...
"Canoeing the Mississippi: Cooling Down"
Posted: Oct 2, 2012 at 12:55 pm
How do you cool off when the sun’s wrath is upon you, at degrees that are above 110 degrees? Short answer, you don’t. You adjust as best as you can, but inevitably you have to accept sweat as part of it all...
"Canoeing the Mississippi: Big Muddy Mike and the Chain of Rocks"
Posted: Oct 1, 2012 at 12:40 pm
Big Muddy Mike is essentially a tall tale. As the foremost mid-Mississippi river guide, the man has retraced Lewis and Clark's journey in a dugout canoe, paddled more water miles than Columbus ever sailed, and he breathes a seamless combination of fact and legend...

"Canoeing the Mississipi: Worst Day of the Trip"
Posted: Sep 21, 2012 at 3:42 pm
We wake early to get a head start on the big storm that the weather channel promised Brainerd. But the combined factors of a one-hundred year flood’s surging current, a thick blanket of clouds holding down the darkness...
"Canoeing the Mississipi: Lake Winnibigoshish"
Posted: Sep 12, 2012 at 5:33 pm
It seems the river changes at every turn. We wandered through the dead
marshes, played canoe-pinball off a bunch of deadfalls, and have arrived
at our first set of big open-water crossings. Yesterday we took
afternoon off catching walleyes in the clear waters below the Beaver
"Canoeing the Mississipi: Lake Itasca"
Posted: Aug 17, 2012 at 5:02 pm
Over dinner in a college cafeteria, this idea surfaced: canoe the Mississippi River from its source to its mouth. Four years later, here we stand on the shores of Lake Itasca, Minnesota, with 2,350 miles and two months before us...
