Don't pee in the grover.

Always pee down stream.

I love to dance, but who needs the music- It throws me off.

The Inland Marine Navigation Act

In Regard to:
(As Amended)

"Any and All Able Bodied Persons, within striking distance of the Master of the Vessel, shall immediately render Aid and Succor to the Master upon his demand"

The courts have repeatedly held that "Aid and Succor" will include but not be limited to-

-Scurrying from one end of the vessel to the other (Stem to Stern) in search of cold beverage for the Master
-Upon Discovery that only one cold, unopened beverage remains on the Vessel, that beverage shall immediately be proffered to the Master
-The Able Bodied crew shall Pop the Top for the Master
-In the event of Incapacitation of the Master, the crew shall hold cold beverage to the Master's lips
-Should the Master remain in the state of Incapacitation, the crew Shall Not hold anything Rude or Offensive to the Master's lips
-If in a state of incapacitation, the Master should "Soil His Sheets", the crew will act as if nothing is amiss
-The term "Drunkenness" shall apply only to the crew, never to the Master, as the crew be mostly Scurvy Dogs
-Master is whomever is at the oars at the time
-The Master may be She
-"Striking Distance" shall only be determined when the crew is Mutinous, or at least Mouths Off to the Master
-In the unhappy event that the Vessel's Beverage Stores be warmed, the crew will raid neighboring vessels in the quest for ice

OK, that's all I know regarding the Act.

Don't bring fish on a hot multi-day, but if you do, eat it last, or else you are going to carry the waste and boat downwind of everyone else.

The more you volunteer to help or take on a chore, the better your odds of being invited again

Always do a thorough camp walk-around in the morning when you have dogs, to look for any surprises they left behind. If you find some poo from another trip, do the happy river karma dance.

^^^^^ Yeah, She says that, but this is who you'll REALLY have to deal with if she finds you've left poop at your campsite!
