Back in the 1840's water carriers would go from town to town in Mexico's Highlands carrying by "world of mouth" issues of day. "Aquadores"...were considered the noblest of "vagabonds". Communications today somewhat the same but the internet and social media help "spread the word" on issues and concerns. Pathways roll w social media evolves much so like the nomination of the Rancocas Creek as a National Water Trail.
4 years of paddling and efforts, the application was submitted by the 03 Nov deadline. I am obliged and thanking-all who helped. W/o the hours of volunteers dissecting and putting together the application there would be no nomination. For all those who think that they have done nothing in support of the nomination rest assured the huge, giant jigsaw puzzle of the nomination has 1,000 pieces to fit. An old proverb says "crossing a ford" leads to further decisions. Indeed the ford is crossed. Crossed in good style and composed of elements of charm, free of animus.
More remains to be done. The nature of the application is such material can be added to the application as updates. Further resolutions of support, (formal and informal) agreements on rehabbing segments of the Rancocas Creek welcome, videos, adopt a creek events, frequent infographics, paddle excursions, end of the season party, etc... follow the evolution of the RC/NWT on social media and follow-up activities. We encourage all folks to be out and about. Paddling, hiking, wandering, touring, checking it all out, come visit the Rancocas Creek. "Wet-Wild-Wonderful".
