During the second day on the Suwannee River, the expedition team continues upstream from a campsite north of the Roline boat launch, through the Suwannee River Water Management District's Cypress Creek and Roline Conservation Areas. Friends from the Everglades Foundation and Palm Beach Photographic Center came to visit the Roline tract in their helicopter where they provided flights for photography and video. The team crossed into Georgia in the early afternoon and made camp on exposed sandbar just south of Fargo.
