Day 25

Please note that there will be no update tomorrow (Saturday) as it is a down day, but there will be a new update on Sunday.

It rained off and on all day, but it was pleasant to me because I have always loved kayaking in the rain. I’m currently at the Kingfisher Bay Marina in Demopolis, Alabama, where I will be until Monday morning. Believe it or not, I paddled 33.77 miles today. Having previously worked at this marina in the past, I thought I would push through knowing they had a restaurant and motel.

My thinking was that if I paddled hard today, I would get a room and sleep in a real bed for 3 nights. However, when I arrived I found out that the motel and restaurant were closed. Another night in the tent it is my friends. I am expecting a resupply day tomorrow.

Fortunately the marina caters to boats traveling, so I can use their facilities, bathrooms, showers, and have access to a courtesy car. First on my agenda is a giant cheeseburger, onion rings, and a sweet tea.

On a side note, I ran out of water this week, and there was nowhere to refill. Therefore, I boiled river water for 2 days for drinking and cooking. Additionally my water filter was broken, but it was not as bad as I thought it would be honestly.

Total miles paddled in 25 days: 488.44 miles

Living the dream
