Beyond Looney Island: A work in Progress
With rowdy pup Maggie as a passenger, I just finished paddling up the Tennessee River, from Paducah to Knoxville. I'm working on a book about this trip, an adventure similar to the 1998 downstream trip I took before writing Paddling the Tennessee River: A Voyage on Easy Water. Looney Island is a real place near Sequoyah Park. It's just a few miles from my takeout on this trip, and I felt that its name had some relevance to the project as a whole. Just a working title, though. Below are a few images from the 2018 journey, which lasted from March 21 to May 17.
