Imagine a spring break adventure in the depths of southern wilderness where warm weather and favorable conditions provide the ideal late-winter getaway. Originating deep in the heart of the Okefenokee Swamp in Southern Georgia, the celebrated Suwannee River flows southeast across the border to Florida for 200 miles, eventually emptying into the Gulf of Mexico. Its name, synonymous with Dixie and the Old South, stirs fanciful visions of stately moss draped Cypress, sultry Southern days, and a way of life long past. If the lifestyle has disappeared into history and imagination, the Suwanee remains substantially unchanged.
During this unique weeklong adventure we will escape winter in New England and form an expedition community that is bold, adventurous, and full of meaning. We will meet you at the airport in Jacksonville, FL and shuttle to the put-in where canoes await. Here we will leave the modern world (including our cell phones) behind and travel in the ways of old, the quiet stroke of the paddle and the crackle of the fire replacing our earbuds and ringers.
