Troop 777 “50 Miler” trip on the Suwannee River

July 2011

I was given the privilege to work with an outstanding group
of young men in July – Boy Scout Troop 777 came out with us to earn their “50 Miler”
award along with a few additional badges all the way from the Space Coast! We
spent 5 days with these fellas and they were real troopers. This was a tough
paddle in canoes with record low water levels and nearly no current to speak

We were very lucky to only have had rain once on the whole
trip! I loved what a great job the leaders did with the boys and everyone was
so respectful. We not only paddled the river but we stopped and played in the
springs, did a few hikes, learned about Leave No Trace, cleaned the trails at
Blue Springs and ate some yummy meals. The staff from Good Time Kayaking helped
these young fellas get their Canoe and First Aid badges also!

I look forward to getting another opportunity to work with
this great group! For more information on how we work with both the Boy Scouts
and Girl Scouts contacts us!

Remember we can supply all the gear, do all the cooking and provide
all the meals and instruction when you choose to book us for your scouting

About notacluegal

Jeanene was born in Pittsburgh, PA. As a young child her family was very active in the outdoors. Things changed when her parents decided to travel down different paths in life and with that decision so went many of the opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Being lucky to live in the suburbs Jeanene always had a backyard to play in and loved being outdoors. As the years passed she took every opportunity to be outdoors. She bought land in Tennessee and as a single mom moved her young daughter to the mountains. The were many life lessons learned on that mountain. There was no plumbing on the property – or even a house, but that did not stop her. She learned to live off of what was available and built her own cabin from the trees on her property. Those were rough years but the most rewarding. Now Jeanene resides in Tampa, Fl. and works as an office manager full time….but still yeans to be outdoors. Jeanene started “Not a Clue Adventures” to teach everyone she could how wonderful the outdoors are! That camping and fishing and hiking can be done by everyone and at many different levels. Single mom’s no longer have to be afraid to take their sons and daughters outdoors. By working with young couples, single parents and even seniors, she gets to teach others about her love for the outdoors and hopes to open their eyes to new adventures. In 2009, Jeanene completed certification as a Leave No Trace Instructor. She also works closely with the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF), Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC) and the Florida State Parks. Jeanene is also certified in First Aid/Adult CPR.
