Way cool, Floyd! Great to see everybody again, and put names to faces again. We loved meeting everybody.

Floyd.

Kath and I watched every minute of this trip video. We saw many things we did not originally experience.

This presentation was truly a labor of love! Thanks Floyd for all your photocraphy efforts. You must have spent hundreds of hours of editing here. You must also have thrown away as much material as you used.

We loved all your animation pieces. This was very creative and technical workmanship. You exhibited lots of good humor.

The music was great. Loved your selection for Bumpas Mills. Very appropriate.

Your mapping segements were very clever and instructive. Finally, the weather map at the end was off the top. Clearly an above and beyond trip documentation effort.

This was a trip of a lifetime for me and Kath. Don't know if we will ever find another C-Dory cruise as special as this one.

For those that did not go, check this out. You might want to plan your own Cumberland and Tennessee River cruises. We have the perfect vessel to do so.

Floyd, I had to stop all that I was doing and watch the video. Well done sir! You captured the essence of the heart of the watermelon.

Thank you! Certainly a work of art and love.

If our health remains good, and all other things in our lives remain constant, we are planing to do the upper part of the Cumberland--and the Tennessee--with perhaps some further exploration of the area between Huntsville AL and Chattanooga, TN this Sept. We would welcome others. Our itinerary would be loose, and at a slower pace. Time for fishing and walking the streets of the little towns....maybe no floods?

We met some wonderful people along the way this year, and we are certain that we will find even more next year.

Thanks again to Jim and Kath for putting this trip together!

Only previewed part of the videos, but from past experience, there is no doubt in my mind that they will all be worth watching.

Bob, when the time gets closer, perhaps you would open up a new thread regarding your trip. I'm still planning on the Inside Passage this spring/summer of Alaska, but no other real plans for later summer, other than probably Meet in the Middle. Colby

Floyd... awesome man I truly appreciate you showing my home waters of the real Cumberland, up river of Nashville. Many make it to Nashville…. then back to the TN...and some on the great loop run up to Nashville. Several yeas back several made an upper Cumberland run with Bill and El of Halcon providing geological narative on the cliffs and rock formations. that was great too.

i cant make September as mid Sep thru about 10th of Oct is the Skagit Valley potato Harvest. late Oct thru March is doable.


See some of you in FL and others in CA

Those were fantastic. I really got the flavor of the trip and it's on my bucket list now.

I so need to retire!

Although we get up at dawn, at dawn Floyd was always already up and pointing his monster camera at the sunrise...every day!

Great job and Thanks, Floyd!

'Floyd, Terrific work. I watched your entire video and thought it was so good that i went back it watch "the Snake and Columbia" again. Obviously enjoyed both. Watched "the Cumberland and Tennessee' again and had a hard time picking favorite parts. Finally selected the reflected clouds at Pebble Island Marina. Spectacular color. Very well done. Lew
