Its a struggle for me to roll without my god as me copirates and id rather had floated the first 40 sumthins into ladore in the hog insteads of rubbers
We had a resupply day built into the schedule before our ladore launch , but the logistics of the probably 4 hours and 20 minutes with a tailwind and leadfoot one way to swap boats and ditch the god then deadheading back and the spansers eye rollin look at that option was enuffs

it'd been mo betters had I got my add laden ass to the gorge and floated the res for poopers the morning before or the photofuckit could git it act right on
but thanks
in the end a simple unedujumacted gas station attendant and river rat sums er up
the last bad one above me--the Bad Rapid--Lava Cliff--that I had been looking for, nearly a thousand miles--I thought: once past there my reward will begin, but now everything ahead seems kind of empty and I find I have already had my reward, in the doing of the thing. The stars, the cliffs and canyons, the roar of the rapids, the moon, the uncertainty and worry, the relief when through each one the campfires at night, the real respect of the rivermen I met and others.
i can honestly say the blessins of being able to do the doing of such things are probably way more than my underachiever ass deserves, and this ginger bastard stepchild of nemos beloved mag ,filled with joes of mere averages to pros who piss pure excellence to the tweeners, has afforded me more of the good
