Thurday, Aug. 12

We got an early start. Martin went around at 6:00 am waking everyone up with revelly and by 7:30 everybody was on the river. With all the smaller scouts we had to split them up into canoes amongst more experienced rowers. I have a feeling they would have been going around in circled without somebody older with them. We were shooting for twenty miles this day, but ended up doing eighteen and a half.

I started out in a canoe with a scout and later took over Dave’s job on the raft. With the temperatures up in the high nineties most of my crew were floating in the water by the side.

At 6:00 we finally arrived at a good camp site and ended the day. The Dutch over dinner tonight was sweet and sour chicken with rice.
