Good Sunday Morning
Hi Susan and thanks for your reply. It is always good
to hear from you. My internet is wireless and portable
but seasonal and when I get to rural minnesota it
stops. BUT a new coffee shop has just opened in
Alexandria and I will now be able to get online a few
minutes a week. Here in california I live next to the
silicon valley and have the best ,,but then the north
woods of minnesota is the dark side of the moon.
...I do not have much interest in the west coast
waterways other than walking along them but I do try
to use it for it,s cutting edge tech and it gives me a
bit of time away to correspond,read, etc.

I have only 4 maps and they sell for $6 each and can
be purchased separately. It would take you about 10
maps for the upper mississippi. At their site you are
given a map to chose from: Minn,
#1,2,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,19 and iowa #1. are the numbers

please,,NOW,however you need to see the world a bit
different than you may be use too...I am trying to
paint a new picture for EVERYONE based on the
discoverys of this last year. There is NO upper
mississippi river BUT it is a center and deepest point
of a LARGE inland sea. The west shore of this sea is
here in west central minnesota and the east shore is
not yet visible and may be near Duluth. When I put all
my maps together and put it up on the wall,,,out
jumped the new sea and the beaches along the edge of
that sea are marked on these maps. Here in west
central minn is two large islands and a cluster of
smaller islands on witch is the KRS.
ALSO,,,please note,,,there is no old upper
mississippi river valley before 1400,s,,,,Schoolcraft
was the indian agent who found itasca BUT Zebulin Pike
found the source somewhere else and I have a map that
also shows it in west central minnesota. Itasca was a
good place for a park, thats all! The lake in west
central minn is higher than itasca and also flows 3
directions and to the missippi,red river and hudson
bay and to lake superior.

This week I will be trying to scan my maps and
sattelite photos into my laptop and then post to your
sites and mine.They will give you a better look at
these maps. I spend hours looking at them and trying
to defind these ancient shores. ODDLY too,,these maps
have all the log cabins at the time and now have led
me to finding many of them too.
I look foreward to discussions in the coming month.
There is so much to do,,,as the picture on the puzzle
box gets clearer and clearer and bigger too. The beach
I found on this hillside this last summer is a WHOLE
NEW WORLD,,or old. This is maybe the highest watermark
of that greatflood on this inland sea.
I would call this new sea,,, Lake MARION or the
Marion OCEAN or the marion sea?????and i did get to
show him that sea last summer and we drove along it,s
beach. Here is the small bay which is a swamp today
and has my ship and also along this great new beach I
took the mooring stone photo with marion and leland.
I wish that some of these unused buttons on here
could be used and one was an excitement button,,,as I
would be pressing it often. I have learned to read the
KRS and the map on it. I would be pressing that
excitement button again...!?
Also i would hope that you and your friends know
about the free google earth and the new updates that
make flying obselete. They make tracing the river
simpler and it,s always a clear and sunny summer day
have a great day
ps,,susan...i got poor grades in english and my typing
skills have now graduated to two fingers....I took
shop class ,,,and have been building new homes and
remodeling for 25years. sorry!
