And it begins!

Welcome.  We'll be posting random musings along our 1865 mile journey from Rosman, North Carolina to New Orleans, Louisiana.  We will paddle 210 miles on the French Broad River and reach Knoxville, Tennessee where the French Broad flows into the Tennessee River.  From there we turn south and head into Alabama and back up through Tennessee to Paducah, Kentucky where the 652 mile Tennessee River flows into the Ohio River.  We'll be on the Ohio for 50 miles until it flows into the Mississippi River in Cairo, Illinois.  Then, we have just 953 miles down the Mississippi alongside Missouri, Arkansas, Tennessee, Mississippi, and through Louisiana to the Gulf of Mexico.  We're paddling sea kayaks and we think the trip will take us about three and a half months.  Feel free to play along at home and follow our blog.

Cheers!
Kara and Liddell (The Broad Adventures Team)
