Just great paddling today, and we made it 28.5 miles to what is known as the “DNR Swimming Bear Campsite”, upstream from Jacobson, MN. Our campsite is elevated, which gives us a captivating view of the river. Good food tonight and great paddlers to share our campsite with.
In other good news, the film production crew was able to shoot several scenes in perfect lighting with no bright sun or hot spots to deal with. Water was moving fast and I am not as tired as I expected to be. No aches or pains.
This wonderful day’s mojo was quickly shattered when I poured my clean clothing on the tent floor. Somehow, water got into the waterproof bag. My clothes were/are dripping wet. That ended such a great day with a deflated since of security. Unfortunately it is raining and no way to dry out the clothing.
I will write more for the blog early am once I figure out how to get my clothes dry.
