Subject: RE: BS: Okefenokee Swamp
Thanks, everybody. I'm reading the articles.

Elderhostel is having a trip to the Okefenokee this October, so there must be something to see, fire or no fire. Trouble is, it's only two weeks from a big trip I've already scheduled.

(Elderhostel trips are now open to any adult. You don't have to have white hair to go along.)

As for boats, I prefer rowing to paddling. Rowing uses your back and legs, the strongest things you have. Paddling a canoe uses the arm and shoulder. I find it very hard on my shoulder, and did even when I was much younger.
