Quick put in for paddle wave, day three.
Dinener and refreshments at "The Cellar" in Long Lake... Superb!
Finish day two at the "Crusher" just east of Tupper Lake.
Day two start; rained all day.

About half way through, while paddling the rackette river I looked skyward through the drizzle and said mockingly, "is that all you've got?" The sky opened up and the rain came down more intensely. I looked up and said, "that's it, that's all ya got?" Then the deluge came and Leigh said, "will you be quiet, the canoe is filling up with rain water."

HA ha ha... tempting the rain gods... what were you thinking?

Funny Rel.

Looks like a grand time, very glad that you went and accomplished it!

...so, did you beat the boat full of ladies? The ones you mentioned before?

Wonderful pics, Rel! What an adventure.
Just so you know, I'm all about chocolate milk recovery. :)
...and do you ever get the feeling someone upstairs - I'm not naming any names - gets a kick out of calling our bluffs? I'm just sayin'...
