I spoke with Joe briefly yesterday and received a message when he pulled into camp. It was an unexpectedly longer day than usual, with 70 miles paddled.
He originally wanted to camp at James Kipp State park; however, when he arrived, there was a large group already at the campsite. Joe decided it was probably best to not have an encounter similar to his sleepless night at Fort Benton, so he pushed on. The only problem was, the next campsite was full as well. As Joe was sitting down over a delicious tuna stroganoff dinner, he left me a phone message when he finally arrived at Rock Creek Campground.
Currently he is in the delta of Fort Peck Lake, and will be on the lake shortly.
