Dale Sanders celebrates at the Gulf of Mexico with a hug from Anna, his grandniece, in whose honor he paddled Source to Sea down the Mississippi to benefit juvenile diabetes research. According to his SPOT, he landed on a small island at the mouth of the river about 1:40 pm today, 15 Aug. At the age of 80, this would make him the oldest man to complete the passage in a single, straight-through trip. If you haven't followed the trip, the links are still in the right margin under Favorite Links. Congratulations to Dale, Anna, and their families.
