Our Story began on April 7, 2012, a few months after the Mother, of our daughter, died from Cancer on Valentines Day 2012. I purchased a West Wight Potter to Motor-Row-Sail, to create more awareness 2 find a Cure 4 Cancer, and named my Potter . . . FLOYD. Since our adventure began, Floyd & I have made several course changes, which has expanded our purpose. Creating awareness, is Not Enough. The Cure, Must be available to Everyone. If Not, There Is No Cure.
Chapter 4 Not sure how long our adventure will take
I, with the assistance of Ken & his staff, are now ready to begin our adventure
on the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Loop. It has been mutually decided by Floyd and I to
be in the Delta by the first week of July 2012 and be launched just south of
Isleton on the Mokelumne River. This
would permit us to divide our adventure into four legs. North up to and beyond Sacramento
and its confluence of Rivers that flow
into the Sacramento River, East towards Lodi and beyond, West towards the Napa
and beyond, and South down the San Joaquin River to Stockton and beyond.
before we launch, Floyd & I will spend some quality time with my daughter,
Sabrina Anne . . . who, in part, our adventure is dedicated, in memory of her
mom who passed away on Valentines’ Day of this year from cancer. Donna, the
wife of my brother Bob, is the other "special" lady that Floyd & my adventure is
dedicated to. Donna is a cancer
Floyd and I
are not sure how long our adventure will take, as its more about meeting folks
along our way to create more awareness 2 find a cure 4 cancer. However, we have both agreed that it gets
rather quiet on the Delta as October approaches. So we will travel and meet folks in one
section at a time in the Sacramento Delta as time permits til’ October, and
pick up where we left off in April of 2013.
Between October and April, Floyd and I will continue
our adventure to meet more folks along the inland waterway back east from New
Jersey to Florida. Floyd said that she
heard Florida was a great place to hang out in the winter months and she is eager to meet my east coast relatives whom I speak often of to Floyd.
hopes that he will meet more of his WWP-15 relatives on the east coast).
Floyd and I
are reaching out to all Potter owners and all boaters for friendship
