In Response to Where you all are?:
I have to ask what's blackwater - swamp feeders and wetlands. After RVing it always means flushing something with gray water afterwards. Admit I don't remember ever seeing black water unless it might have been in fens or wetlands and those were creeks. Most Maine rivers are either pure and clear, or slightly brownish unless green with millefoil invasion.

Black water looks like tea and is caused by tannin from decomposing leaves. They also have it in the New Jersey pine barrens where they call it cedar water.
I have already reserved my spot at the Flamingo campground in the Everglades for the annual gathering of Folbot kayak owners. It is the last week of January and the first week of February. Hopefully I will be able to manage a few other trips between then and now.
