Sojourning

Posted on Apr 13, 2009 in Artifacts | No Comments

It’s time to register for the Schuylkill River Sojourn. The sojourn is a 112 mile paddle from Schuylkill Haven to Philadelphia. It’s a fabulous trip, well organized and expertly guided. Lee and I went for 3 days last year and we are trying to do more this year. It was wicked hot, but beautiful weather and wonderful company. We met so many interesting people, all ages and all walks of life. We learned a ton about the river as well as some early American explorers, which was the theme of last year’s sojourn. It’s hard to describe what spending that much time on the river can do for you, but it’s an amazing experience you won’t forget. The event is in June and it’s put on by the Schuylkill River Heritage Area. It’s a huge undertaking logistically and it’s handled by just a few dedicated folks including Kurt Zwikl, Tim Fenchel, Susan Fordyce, Bob Folwell and Cyndi Kott (forgive me for anyone I left out). Hope to see you there.
