Gabrielle Bilik of the Yorktown News introduced herself and we began the interview. She was very thorough with her questions and boy could she write fast. She kept up with my answers without using anything more than a pen and paper. I should have warned her that I can talk a lot, but I didn’t.
Life on the water is hot. Hot. HOT. Did I mention it’s been HOT? I am very concerned about Sun Stroke. There is no relief from the sun these past few days and there is little breeze so the air gets stagnant and hard to breath. Every time I tried to convince myself to jump in the water, I’d pass another dead fish. Catfish I think. Seriously, I stopped counting around 60 today and I’m just one little boat in a large river. That is way too many dead fish. Not sure if it’s the heat killing them or something worse, but I can’t bring myself to jump in there like I did in Lake Champlain. Sadly, that is how this will be until I hit the Keys.
My last night in my old neighborhood. It was a rather busy day. We scored some of that food I'd been looking for in the last place we looked (wink wink). The Daily Voice interviewed me today or rather tonight, just as I sat down to eat dinner. Then it was back to packing up my gear in the new dry bags.
