JMB Vlog 205 | Quickwater Canoe Poling Trip

We took advantage of the recent rains to get out onto a small stream we can usually only canoe during the high waters of early spring. It is the same stream we ran for JMB Vlog 182, Poling A Low Water Stream, and is a great local run. This time we had lots of water and lots of deer flies. Like most of the country, we’ve had a hotter than usual summer, and when it gets hotter, the deer flies get worse. Even with the flies we had a great day and a lot of progress was made.

Typos, Etc.
Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
