    Put the phone down and step away . It is a good thing that what you hit was a sand bar and not another boat.

    Whoever Tex is, I think he is a bad influence and you should not be hangin together.

    Bob took longer to walk back up river to find a spot that was shallow to walk to the bank. Then hook up everything. Just to clarify here I was reading a tex not replying.

    I hate it when you run aground while reading a TEXT from tex.

    If you can't walk on water...You need to learn to read it.
    Almost as easy as reading a "tex"...but drier!
    Who said a dry read is not a good read???

    As a rookie I get nervous every time those silt filled rivers get wide. Usually I am light and get that tell tale shhhhhhhh then cringe waiting for the crunch of pumping rocks.

    Lujon fun thing when I was running up river. I thought to myself remember this spot on the way down...it way shallow. But I forgot. I carry a chain saw winch so it was pretty easy to get off the 1 inch of water I was sitting in.

    I'm waiting for our first grounding - which will probably be tomorrow on the Twenty Mile River. We've been told to "corner hard at the log jam", which probably means we will wind up in it....

    Twenty mile would be a lot of fun; I looked at the primitive launch, it looks like a real challenge getting the boat off the bank into the water. Looks like the tide may really affect the area, so we havenít tried it yet.

    Since the grounding the dog seems to crawl into my lap during the tougher moments, he's pretty smart.
