Thanks for reviving memories. I grin as I remember fishing the far corners ofBaudcau.Sounds like pedaling is a lot like paddling.
You have to drive a ways to get away from crowds and larger vehicles. Not always physically easy (up hill/current, headwind etc.). One difference, when I paddle there always seems to be a headwind when returning to the launch. It may have blown from the opposite direction all day but it will change when time to return. Wind speed seems to correlate to how tired you are and how far it is back to the vehicle.
Started to say another difference is paddling takes to the fish. Then I remembered how many miles, as a kid we paddled just to fish a pond or road side canal.
On a lot of canoe trips those birds were circling overhead all the time. I started calling them Georgia Eagles since most of them were in Georgia.you did better than me. I’ve never had a cougar follow me, to the best of my knowledge. But I’ve had vultures following me. Though, come to think of it, maybe they were following a cougar? Hmm.
