Big Island is a spectacular deep-delta haven for writers, photographers and other creative-types concerning paddling the Lower Mississippi River!

When you start an expedition you never know what to expect: sudden change in weather, lost or broken equipment, mistakes in maps, an injury. Planning for these eventualities will allow you to deal with them and still reach your objective in spite of temporary setbacks. On the other hand, lack of planning can spell disaster. The more careful the planning, the more likely problems will be anticipated and not allowed to interfere with your ultimate objective.

    There should be a book specifically written for expedition paddlers on our mighty river that should be required reading prior to shoving off at the head…Just sayin 🙂
