tragedy with the river transport
I got one block towards the river this morning and the wheel axle snapped on the wheel! good thing I was not hauling down the hill. So I will need to see if I can find someone ( I have some ideas) that can build a new wheel setup for this. now that I have had the boat on there I would also place them back a bit for better center of gravity. I ended up taking the boat down in a car and paddling for awhile anyway which was really nice and practicing some rolls in the river.....water feels good. I think this summer I will get a refresher course. I have paddled some class III pretty confidently and a very small amount of class IV where I knew the way around but its been a few years so I need to brush back up.
