back in the day, a bunch of us always looked forward to this time of year - Spring melt, heavy rains, etc to bring the water levels up so we could run some rivers - some were day trips others a few days long.

At times we were a little too anxious and would have to portage around some, still frozen deadwaters. LOL. Good times.

i still wear one of those PFDs when I am on the sit on or the canoe because they are light and less restrictive.

Love the photos...!! Man, I miss those days. I took more than a few good dousing in ice cold water and dismantled a few canoes but what a thrill it was to ride those rapids. Nothing like it...!!!

Brings back great memories Gary...Thanks...

out the few pics I have of these trips - here's a couple of casualties. If I recall, the Mohawk canoe rip was patched with cut open Keiths beer cans, rivets, duct tape. LOL. Learned pretty quick that you needed some patch gear for those trips where road access was a fair ways off.
