After cutting my ring off, we decided the best course of action to get my hand to a surgeon ASAP while not ruining the whole trip for everyone was to lash my kayak on our 14' raft and for my son and I (me using only my thumb and first finger on my left hand) to row the remaining 40'ish miles to Clay Hills. We stayed on the oars (either one or the other of us, or one on each oar) the entire time. Left Honaker at 11:00am, got to Clay Hills at 7:30 pm (and to the Blanding ER at 11:30 pm).

This was at a bit over 2000 cfs, though.

Glad you didn’t have that run today. Damnation.

Good news, it won’t be 893 the rest of the trip.

And apparently, this camp has 3 bars worth of 3g.

Go figure.
