We had a great day paddling today. Although it was windy, it was not so hot, and we were like horses racing for the stable. My brothers’ friend Russ met us upon our arrival and helped us carry dirty packs to a hotel for Deb and Deb and to a campground for me. We are trying an experiment to see if we can survive without being in each other’s company for one night. We enjoyed a nice Thai meal with the Grand Forks Herald reporter Brad Dokken. Tomorrow we start off all sparkling clean. That will last at least until we start to load the canoe.
