After sleeping on the ground, three rocks, and a root, the last thing you want to do is repeat your sufferfest: carrying a canoe and gear around a waterfall.
Only to get back in the water for the remaining 30 miles of a 100-mile journey.
You signed up for this. Giddy as a school boy.
Once the coffee kicks in, it's back to sunshine, rainbows, and big fish. When will the coffee kick in...Better make myself a second cup.
It's all worth it once you get back on the water.
Just a few paddle strokes in and the trance kicks in.
Adventure is here.
Sleeping in is a waste of daylight. Do what you love––go fishing.
