We charge for shore asrepparttar lake turns to white caps. The rain and lightning moves in fast. Did I mention that we gotrepparttar 141418 boat for free and have no clue what to do inrepparttar 141419 rain? We pullrepparttar 141420 boat up close to shore near our camp, outside ofrepparttar 141421 no-wake zone. We leave all of our gear and head forrepparttar 141422 soggy camp.

Well, apparently its best to leave your boat in protected cove inrepparttar 141423 no wake zone. From what we could tell, our boat was hammered with 300 to 400 gallons of water fromrepparttar 141424 waves and boat wakes from boaters rushing back torepparttar 141425 dock. Yes, it sank in 18 inches of water. I didnt realize a boat could sink in 18 of water! All of our gear is floating aroundrepparttar 141426 shore. The gas tank and gear which included an Orvis waste pack with hmmmm, some 500 plus flies. Every box any fly had to be opened and dried onrepparttar 141427 dashboards of our trucks.

We bailrepparttar 141428 boat, loadrepparttar 141429 truck and haul our soggy gear and crippled egos back home.

Next memorial day, its back torepparttar 141430 river!!!

Safety Awareness & Self Defense: Circle of Safety

Written by Eric Gehler

Continued from page 1

If possible avoid walking alone. Always attempt to be in a group, or at least in public areas where there are many other people. Avoid walking at night where there are no streetlights. Be aware of potential hiding places for dangerous strangers, behind bushes, in alleys, behind large trash dumpsters. As you approach these potential hazardous areas extend your circle of safety by distancing yourself from these obstacles.

These few tips can meanrepparttar difference from being a victim or a safe pedestrian
