      15 paddlers and three dogs braved impending
      showers and were rewarded by some fascinating currents
      with eddies and multiple bump overs and maybe two
      portage/pullovers. The rain came and went and the temp stayed in the
      50s making it bearable. The treefall was reminiscent
      of the way the rest of the Lumber used to be before
      they cleared it up. Distance posted at the start was
      9.2 miles with a paddle time of 4 hours 42 minutes.
      We made it in about 4:20 with a half hour lunch stop
      on a muddy sand bank during which Jim M. showed off
      his tarp rigging skills. Paddlers were: Mike and Liz
      Britt, Bob Guckel, Jim and Mia McDermott, Renate
      Schuchardt, Charles West, Pam Cline, Jim DePree, Dorcas and
      Myron Whitley, Lynda and Wayne Charles, Frank Dupin,
      and a new member Gary (sorry, didn't get last name).
      Thanks to Marshal Thompson who showed up to help with
      the shuttle at the start.
