It's funny how when people ask us "Where did you put in?" or "Where are y'all headed?" that they don't really know what they're getting into. When we answer, we have to start with our more recent put-in, but then go on to explain how many days from our start on Grandfather Mountain we are and that our "take-out" is the Atlantic Ocean. The reactions range from surprise and wonderment of our ambitious journey (one took place today with two local fishermen) to the belief that we're a bunch of crazy paddlers just being smart. The excitement of what we are working everyday to accomplish is apparent in our quickness to take advantage of any oppourtunity to amaze someone of our journey.
Ocean in 8 days!
