Father and son ‘run the river’ from North Carolina to Mobile Bay

Baldwin, Alabama (WKRGMore) — On Friday morning, a trip that started on a whim in January came to an end.

“Let the river flow from home to Mobile.” That was the plan for Clark Glenn, a Mobile native, who now lives in Asheville, North Carolina. He’s more than 500 miles away by car, but he and his 11-year-old son Tabor planned by the river. “Hey, I brought you a canoe and a jon boat. Let’s see what magic you can do.”

“I really loved being out there with the wind in my face at times and the water splashing up the bow,” Tabor said. “I really liked it.”

During my two weeks on the water, I crossed rapids, caught fish, “done what’s called hackfinning along the shoreline,” navigated locks and dams, and explored small caves. I did.

“We had a great morning on the Tennessee and Tonbigbee rivers,” Glenn said.

Summer is over and it was the last trip before school started. “It was a great adventure and I would love to do it again,” added Tabor.

It’s time for fathers and sons to make memories and enjoy the simple things. “There’s so much to explore in this world, and we tend to think that something special, something big, has to be a luxury, but you don’t know that,” says Glenn. Said, and even better when the most important person is on the boat with you.
