Jerry and I went out this afternoon and were able to retrieve his boat. -- all of his gear was still in the boat -- so no worry's about ropes, etc.

Maybe I missed something obvious, so forgive me if you weren't solo, but perhaps boating alone could be part of the equation here...?

A friend and I were driving up to Alto-Alto just a couple weeks ago and stopped to pull a guy's boat out of the same stretch of river. He had been boating solo and when he pinned, he got lucky - he pinned head-up. He was also lucky to get out of the boat. Bone-zone mank + solo = you can only cheat natural selection so long.

Join up, suckas.

Not a Darwin Candidate!

Nope, I'm not going out like that! The only place I boat solo is IN the play park, and not during flood stage.

We couldn't get my boat out because none of us had a fifteen foot pole stashed in our boats.

Well, I did, but I couldn't get to it.

Thanks to Cheyenne for getting me my boat back, and showing me how it's done!

He's the man.
