"During Guide Training we flipped at Magic. I was swimming. Trying to swim right and hold onto my paddle, I swallowed lots of water…
I had 5 throw bags thrown at the same time and 2 of ‘em hit me in the head. When they pulled me back in I had so much water in me I had to puke on the raft."

"I took a swim in my kayak at 3rd Sister [on the Kennebec]… no big deal, but I came up without my specs."
-Eric from Winslow
"It was 8 years ago. It was my last pack of cigarettes. It sucked. I lost them before Carry Brook."

"Dead River.1999. 2400 cfs. Blue High tech carbon fiber oar...There was a canoe trip and I happened to be rowing by.
A man got into trouble and when I went to assist him, the terrified canoeist ripped the oar out of my hand.
I suspect the oar washed up in the vicinity of Appleton’s."
-Cliff from The Forks
