For the first 3 days we spent most of our time in a canoe - Tucker in the back, Karyn at the front and Bev in the center.
This is how it all started -
Then the first canoe tipped over and we lost the eggs. Then the second canoe tipped over and we lost the beer. Then a canoe tipped over and we lost almost everything - Tucker, Bev and Karyn had stopped to wait for the crew and had no idea what was going on. We were at a nice place for lunch.... or dinner..... We saw some signs of visitors.
When the rest of the crew arrived - almost everyone had gotten wet. Doug, Gabby and Victoria were the only ones out of the canoes we got ahead of that stayed dry! Everyone was cold and exhausted so we just set up camp and called it a day. A clothesline was in order!
The next morning we headed out knowing that we had a lot of river to cover to make up for what we didn't get done the first day. We paddled all day with a train of canoes - each with a visual contact of the one behind them so no one got separated the way we had the day before. Tucker, Bev and I spotted an island that we thought would work and we started to set up camp again - not many pictures, not sure why.... it was raining the next morning as we headed to the 'get out' spot.
Debbie's mom, wet from a dip in the river before lunch, waits for someone to please build her a fire! They did, don't worry!
Doug passing on some wise words.......?
