Mile 258

After another long, wet, cold day on the river I’m nestled up on a muddy little island in the shadow of a massive coal fired plant.  Across the banks, next to the plant, are the remains of a town the power company relocated after a massive spill in 2002–glad I’m on this side of things. More on that later.

Tomorrow I’m planning to hit a warm shower and friend’s apartment in Huntington WV–so I’ll have a real update.

Think spring for me.



About banksofthebasin

Brett grew up in South Jersey, moved to the coast of Maine to study human ecology, and then spent a year traveling on rivers around the world—from the frozen arctic to the mangroves of south Asia. Before setting out on Banks of the Basin he baked bread in Pittsburgh and kayaked the beautiful rivers of central Appalachia.
