Excerpts From Reed Ryan's Log
My wannigan is so heavy that this morning I fell backwards trying to flip it up. It is twice as much burden as the canoe. I swamped my pig boots twice on the second portage with it. There was no unloading, just a bog. I went to step out with my wannigan and fell in up to my hips. It took Boner (Patrick Slevin) and Alex all their strength to pull me out.
Wow! What a day! I woke up this morning to a wind blowing with the fierceness that only God himself could produce. With the wind-chill, Iím guessing it was around freezing. To add to the excitement of the day, our tent-pole snapped because the wind was blowing so hard. At one point, Vick and I were holding onto the tent with all our strength, just to keep it from blowing away - even with it staked down with 12 stakes!
