LINER NOTES:  

How to Tell Who's Boss

As always, he was the staff, I was the guide, and I always got the uphill side of the tent.

Who's the Toughest of Them All

Jamie (my bow) and I ran, what Bill Carpenter calls, Black Rapids on the Pipestone down the middle through immense haystacks.  At the top Jamie told me that he wasn't scared because he had ridden all of the roller coasters in Montreal. But at the bottom, with over a foot of water in the canoe, having dipped deep enough into a couple of troughs to lose sight of the rest of the section watching on, he turned and told me, "Bill, NEVER do that to me again!"

A Promise Is A Promise

We promised Fred [Reimers] that we wouldn't go to Webequie and Summer Beaver.  We figured that since we went to only one, from a logical perspective, we had kept our word.

Don't Piss With Me!

We had stopped for lunch on Opapimiskan Lake and were getting ready to put out the fire. Phil thought he would show me a "neat trick," so he opened his pants and let fly. Imagine my glee when the stream from his volley reached the headband of my jewelry tump strap (casually discarded on the floor of the dusty kitchen). Well, his defense was Danny made him do it. Quite a feat, since Danny was several hundred miles south at the Outpost.
