Voyage Stories


I've taken several lengthy voyages, and this section is for those stories and for Your Stories to be told. There is a way, I believe, but I don't know how it works yet, for you to add your story to this site as an HTML page. For now, just send me an e-mail and I'll cut and paste it to the site.

Also, if your voyage location covers rivers, lakes, canals, or waterways that are not listed on this site, I'll add them to it and do the research required...unless of course, You want to !!

Finally, if you wish to submit your story to a national magazine, or you just want to make sure your spelling, grammer, & punctuation are fine, OR you feel you could use a "ghostwriter" to do your story justice, I can direct you to the best experienced writer, editor, & proofreader I know, my wife (River Marie)!
