Another frozen river

10678786_10153304020179989_925644797771342491_n14 years ago, Karen and I set out to paddle from Chautauqua County, New York, to the Mississippi River. In the cold of each winter, I find myself starting to think about how we will manage to do a trip again this year. It is a way to deal with the winter. Karen has her own way of dealing with the winter. She keeps our canoe in Jamestown throughout the year and has committed to paddling the canoe at least once every month of the year. To my knowledge, she kept that promise to herself in 2014. At least I remember seeing this photo on her Facebook page in November when she went out on the semi-frozen Chadakoin River in Jamestown, NY, with her daughter-in-law Mikaela. I was a little jealous, I must admit.  Karen, was there any water NOT frozen in Western New York in January?

We have 4 months to plan how to get a good distance down the Ohio River this year. But meanwhile, stay tuned to some posts from our mis-adventures closer to home last May.
