    Anytime out on a river is a good time. Remember, even a blind monkey finds a bannana once in a while. Good luck on you adventure.

    Not easy access and not too friendly locals. Put an NRA sticker on your rig and maybe pick up a license plate frame from one of the auto dealerships in PA.

    Good luck!

    Isn't there anything that you are not afraid of?

    Just because you did it and came out okay doesn't mean you were not scared!

    I have done ok on the Hoko, but I've been skunked many times.
    The locals are definitely an "interesting" bunch

    Bring booze and weed as bribes for good behavior
