I finally bit the bullet and headed to a pond that I knew that I could put the canoe into. I also knew that there probably would be other folks out on this pond, as there are not many places you can go to launch boats.

I got out to the pond and saw there were three other boats out there. Not a problem as there is a lot of room for everyone. Got the canoe off the truck and put all the stuff into the canoe, especially the paddle. This time I could move the canoe around.
