Lost Oar in Hells Canyon
Just got off, we had a wonderful trip BUT, I allowed another boatman to use my spare oars. I did not insist that they were tethered and one was lost in Granite. I was last observed bobbing below the rapid. It is a Counterbalanced Sawyer Polecat (White) 10' with a Gilman Grip. My initials JM are on the oar, below the rope wrap. Most of my equipment has contact information on it, I screwed up and did not have on the oar. Here's to relying on the kindness of strangers, hopefully the oar did not make it to the Land of Wind and Ghosts.
