Nice write up BigTim! You left out that you had your hip replaced last year and this was your first trip back in with the new hardware. Mentally challenging since you didn’t yet trust your step. Thank goodness for the pack mule.


You showed it but didn’t mention anything - you also completed your first fishing outing in the front of the canoe. And caught a northern!

I used to be a pack mule. Roles have certainly reversed.
