A couple of years ago my dad and I took a small boat journey down the Miss River in a small aluminum boat. I rode with him from St Louis, MO to Pensacola Fl (Since I'm on the boat, and he dropped me off at Key Sailing - that's the catsailor connectionů).
I've since taken all of his notes, journals, etc and compiled a book of that journey. It was published last week on Smashwords, and soon to be released to Apple, Kindle, Amazon,, etc.
