Paddling the Thames

The plan has only just crystallized in the past hour, but Mark and I will be heading out tomorrow morning to paddle 80 miles of the Thames River, starting where the navigable waters begin and ending in Bourne End (the village in which we live). We’ll be leaving Friday morning and returning Monday night, camping out along the way and renting the canoe from the friendly Thames Canoe people. They drop you off and pick you up at whatever start and end points you choose and they provided us with a list of campsites (and inns) to use along the way.

Now to pile up the gear!
