Comments: This is near Hattiesburg, Mississippi, about a two-hour drive from here. You can camp in the campground by the put-in/take-out, or you can show up by 9 a.m. each morning to join the daily paddles. This is a "pool and drop" paddle, with safe opportunities to play on the drops.
In other news:
Surfing Kayak for sale: seen at yard sale in Fairhope by Larry Mickelsen, Sr., who reports: "This thing looks like a surfboard with three fins and a shallow seat, with the straps, and a cheap paddle. He was asking $200. He claimed he paid $1200 for it I looked at the name but never heard of it so I didn’t try to remember it. This guy is located on the end of Patlin that is away from Gayfer on the left side as you look at the armory. I really think he may go lower as he is moving to Montana soon."
