I got permission earlier this year to fish a new pond; at least it was new to me. Unfortunately it has been way to wet to be able to get into it. Finally I heard that it had dried up enough to get into it on one of the "roads" that goes to it, so I put the canoe on the rack and "all" of my stuff in the truck and headed off.

When I got to the pond and realized that I left two things at home. One was the camera which I left sitting on the table, and the other was the Assault paddle that makes it easy to move the canoe a short distance. It was too far to go back and get them so I had to make the best of it.
