Re: Five Mile River-June 12th (LIMITED ROOM)
Yes it was quite eventful: A broken seat support, an accidental backwards slide over a beaver dam and snapping off a paddle blade trying to stop, 4 or 5 beaver dams run in a forward direction, stepping off a ledge up to my neck, broken sunglasses, walking and pulling the boat through short shallow stretches 4 or 5 times, a slightly twisted ankle on a rock, getting in and out of the boat about a dozen times, hitting countless rocks and submerged trees, almost flipping once or twice. One of the most fun trips I've been on. Second only to getting lost in the Great Swamp a few years ago. Looking forward to doing it again.
