Gainesville residents go floating down the Flint
Pair paddle for seven days and 106 miles
0630 PADDLE 3
Participants prepare to launch their canoes and kayaks into the water during the Paddle Georgia trip down the Flint River. Participants took seven days to travel down the river from Warwick to Bainbridge.
Doris Lindsey’s vacation didn’t exactly get off to the ideal start. The first night of her seven-day paddling trip down the Flint River a terrible thunderstorm passed over the campsite, flooding her tent. Lindsey decided to sleep on top of a picnic table to stay out of the water, but fortunately her neighbors on higher-ground came to her rescue.
