Paddle Chickamauga

Jerry McClanahan, Gary Buchanan, Patrick Lavin, and I paddled about 6 miles on Chickamauga Lake from lake access on upstream side of Sequoyah Nuclear Plant to Chester Frost Park. We were fortunate to have a little wind behind which helps with paddling but it wasn't sufficient to cool us off. Maybe October will provide some cooler weather for kayaking on the river.

Thief Neck Island

Pat, Rosemary, Keith, Gary, Bob, and I made the approximate 6.5 mile round trip out to Thief Neck Island, around the island, and back to Winton Chapel Road boat ramp. Wind was calm and temperature was comfortable until the last mile. Keith was able to get some swimming practice along the way. His new paddle board threw him off at least three times.
