My son Will began a river journey today.  Will and two friends are kayaking the Cape Fear River. They put in early this morning at the Jordan Lake dam and plan to arrive in Wilmington by Friday. Right now they hope to finish their trip at the USS North Carolina. If things go well they may continue on to the Atlantic. Please keep Will and his buddies in your thoughts and prayers.

What is the most exciting journey you have taken? What journeys would you like to take? Please share your memories and dreams.

A few weeks ago I told you about my nephew's walk across America. Matt Green is in day 45 of his walk from Rockaway, New York to Rockaway, Oregon. Matt is currently at the Crossroads of America. Indiana is treating him with warmth and enthusiasm. Matt is averaging more than 20 miles a day. 

What journeys are on your horizon?  

By the way we'll get back to our tour of the top ten oldest Tar Heel towns tomorrow.
