You just shot by the last marina for MILES. Where are you going for the night?

Are you trying to break the record for getting to Guru status in the fastest time ever?

Daddyo-

You have made good time today-a couple of decent anchorages in your general area around Deewees Creek, Whiteside Creek or around MM 450. You need to stop and have a beer!

Looks like he's anchored. Good job Daddyo. You got your 100+ miles in today.

If you're anchored, Daddyo, you're just south of a shark hole we sometimes fish. Not the best place for a swim. Some of my wife's family lived for many years just behind that golf course on Isle of Palms. Before Hurricane Hugo, that was all jungle. Great memories.

Thanks, THD. I'll try to check out that film. Development's changed things for sure, but there's still a lot to love about that country.

I think I went over that hole on the fork in the creek. Depth plunged to 80' like it was a cliff. Pretty amazing stuff for a sand and mud bottom.

Tom,
You have to know by now I'm too cheap and too late arriving to justify a marina.

Sorry to say but I'm not a beer guy. Wine, single malt or black strap rum and tonic with a twist of lime

Marina not necessary with his set up. Just watch the moon, sip the grapes, listen to the cicadas and the jumping fish.

Convergence of all that is good.

Gosselin's Rum, Jamaican Ginger Beer and a lime.

Will you make Oriental for Saturday? Will you stop or just pass by? Should we come for beverages or stay home and do yard work?

Hi Bess, he's doing about 80 miles on a good day, currently around MM 460, we're at 180, so that's around 280 miles to go. Currents and other stops notwithstanding, that puts him in Oriental on Monday evening. Daddyo should make his Deltaville destination by Friday week.

I guess I'm generically stalking, but enjoy checking the route time to time and living vicariously through Daddyo's travels.

That's the spot. Couldn't see your position clearly on my iPhone. The tide really scours those creeks.

The inlet you passed before Deweese, but probably didn't see, is called Breach Inlet. It's where the Confederate sub Hunley put to sea to sink the Housatonic.

I singled handed for three round trips from the chesapeake to s fl The hardest part for me was lack of human contact. I would dinghy to shore at night and go to the store just to see people. In the fall it was a 20 to 22 day trip in the spring 15 18 days

Yeah, we're all stalking him! Tom and I did the math too. Guess we're doing yard work as planned. I was so looking for a reason to go to the boat this weekend!

Y'all need a reason?? We'd be there but the kid has a volleyball tourney this weekend in Asheville. We're in the opposite direction. Just have to follow Daddyo on line...
