Journey to Chattanooga Tennessee

5 Sep

Goosepond was nice but we had places to be!

Bushranger and her good friend Summer Wind continued their wander up the Tennessee River…

…note how close Bushranger is to Summer Wind…

…yep, for those non-nautical types, this is called ‘rafting’.  In this case, Summer Wind dropped her anchor and we pulled up next to her (with lots of fenders hanging – we wouldn’t want to mess up her lovely paint-job), tossed a few lines across, then climbed onboard for a great dinner.  Afterwards we separated,  Bushranger dropped her anchor and spent a quiet night bobbing ‘on the hook’…

…nice anchorage, isn’t it?

We plan to spend a few days here.  We’ll be picking up some auxiliary crew members (welcome Ron and Adrianna!), so I expect we’ll have some stories to tell when Bushranger and Summer Wind get back to Guntersville.

    Glad to see you made it to Chattanooga safely. Looks like it’s been a wonderful trip upriver. I plan to drive from FL to TN later this week and would love to meet up with you to celebrate your Loop completion in person, and to see you off before you return to Australia. Do you think you’ll still be in Chattanooga Thursday or Friday night, or will you already be back to Guntersville, or so? Almost any spot with a marina is pretty reachable by car from the Tampa Bay area in a day. -Alex (901) 485-9095

    Great shot of the Golden Arches. They look like they are in the middle of the wilderness. Looking forward to more Chattanooga photos.
