Spent the night at a Marriot for a good deal of $250. Matteress was soft so after tweaking my back picking up kayak to get it behind fence it was not a great night sleep.
woke up had breakfast then a 3.5 mile walk to hardware store to get what I needed to repair the wheel.
Met a veteran in the store who gave me a ride to the marina which was out of his way.
Fixed the wheel and the marina lent me one of their guys to get the yak to the dock. Then I had 2 guys waiting for gas help me put the yak in the water.
Down the river I went. Landed on a beach at an inlet which looked like the local hangout. Talked to a bunch of people about Mission22. I was invited to spend the night at his house
I took the offer
