We are off and running.  After spending a lovely morning with the ladies from the NFFF we set off from Toms Creek which is just down the road from the memorial.  The going was tough for the first day as the water level was very low and we had to carry or "portage" the plastic kayak that we are using for a large part of the distance.  After half a day the water level increased a little and we ended the day at Frederick, Maryland which has a rich civil war history.  The scenery is amazing and there is plenty of wildlife including fish, birds, turtles and deer.
