Nothing if you happen to enjoy people knocking on your door trying to change your life with absurd values.

Fortunatley I just finally clicked on this thread, so i wasn't waiting on most of the story.

There needs to be a way to be notified only if the OP replies. Not a whole lot of interest in reading the side comments (like mine).

It originally sounded like he was missing the ammo can that he in fact had on the first night, with the keys and wallets.

Is your first mate still your GF? Will she boat again?

Dear Mr. Dave Frank:

The material loss was just shy of total (certain folks on the river immediately after us, and on the banks below, were stellar in salvaging a little of the gear). The First Mate and I, however, did not lose one another---Thank God. She is of hearty soul and spirit, with tremendous fortitude.

---As to your second question? At this juncture, Iím not sure either of us will ever boat again. ---Or, if so, in what capacity. The river has been my life ---not hers.

Her ammo can was strapped to the right running board and was lost.

My objective here is to bear down and get the story told. Hopefully readers will benefit from the telling. And finally, I hope to post some of my own reflections as to how and why this happened.

My best to you and to yours, and to all the great folks out there who make up the larger river community.

It's actually getting pretty hard to tell, having read the opening post as a true story, where fact ends and fiction begins.

Never let the truth get in the way of a good story.

Never call out a story teller unless you always tell the truth.

Yes. And if you weren't there....and none of us were.
