Jeff had recovered from shoulder surgery, so he scheduled a short paddle on the Flat River to get back into shape. It was also the first paddle of the season for one of our clubs, and several of our members.
Whites Bridge, an old wooden covered bridge that was burned down last July. A group is trying to raise money to rebuild it. This was a section of the Flat River I had never been on before. I wish I could have been here when the bridge was still here.
A short paddle of just over an hour, but fairly close to home. We got off the river just in time as the rain predicted for evening arrived earlier than expected. Seeing as I didn't bring any rain gear, I was glad to get off the water when we did. Several large storms passed through a couple hours later, causing a lot of wind damage. Ron lost his car to a large tree falling in his yard. Fortunately it missed his house and he wasn't injured.
Miles paddled today: 5.1. Year to date: 39.5.
