My Facebrook friend, Layne Logue, met Jake Anderson yesterday while stopping for a break while paddling the Mississippi River. He started in Iowa and has paddled 905 miles so far to Vicksburg. Jake called Layne yesterday for supplies and got him a double pounder with fries and some other minor stuff. He will take the Atchafalaya River (south of Natchez) to the Gulf of Mexico.
Jake pushing off continuing his journey!
An hour later he called Layne to tell him that he just watched a black bear swim the Mississippi River about 10 miles south of Vicksburg. He caught it halfway and escorted to the Louisiana side. The river is 2/3 miles wide in that area and said he was getting tired just watching him. How cool it is to witness that! Lucky guy!
Wishing Jake a successful and safe travels on the Mighty Mississippi and Atchafalaya Rivers.
