Day 71

Day 71/Sept 15 Mississippi Islands 🚣🏻‍♂️

I’m a day from Greenville but it feels remote and there’s limited phone reception. I met a man with a homemade catamaran who said he’d come from Wichita.

I’m canoeing nearly 50 miles a day but ever since I stayed at the air conditioned casino I’ve been feeling worn out with a sore throat. The heat index and humidity put the temps past 100 but I don’t really mind that so much. Eating a lot of #beefjerky.

Hurricane Florence made landfall yesterday in the U.S. Carolinas. Today Super Typhoon Mangkhut hit northern Phillipines. ShelterBox is sending out updates of the situation. It’s bad on both accounts.

The river’s rising, too, with rain and storm residual from other places, but I’m dry and the sunrise and sunsets are gorgeous. Millions of people every day hope to say the same.
