Another great trip. We got our logistics worked out Saturday and dropped in near Atsion (Krust & fallkniven in one canoe, Ratdog & mrcheviot in another, nredneck solo, and me and silentorpheus in my canoe. It was a pleasant paddle to Mullica River camp (though I somehow pulled a rib that was very painful).
Njredneck prepared pulled pork and we had salsa verde or barbecue sauce on the sandwiches, along with salad and cole slaw. Every morsel of food disappeared. Later, fallkniven prepared apples with cinnamon with butter, expertly cooked by The Tree Frog. Finally, we had a midnight snack of brats.
It started raining around midnight and everyone went to bed. By morning it was raining steadily. Njredneck cooked up 3 lbs. of bacon, some brats, 36 eggs and we had tortillas with cheese and salsa verde. Quite a nice way to start the day.
Effensmurfy, The Tree Frog, his son Zach and his friend sherpa'd the gear out, as they did in. Much appreciated! Around 11 we started the final leg of our canoe trip, Mullica River Camp to Pleasant Mills. Njredneck decided to go swimming before we even left camp, then five minutes further down the river we heard a lot of cursing and found Ratdog had capsized and wasn't looking too happy. We fished him and his gear out of the river. Luckily he had a spare paddle because he lost one in the drink (which he later found).
Silentorpheus and I were very nervous paddling the rest of the way, for fear we were going swimming too. Luckily, we avoided capsizing, though it rained enough that we were pretty wet anyway.
Thanks for all who came out. Another great time!
