Time to explore.

It may make sense to lock a bike at Dargan's Bend just in case I can't make it back upriver from the ledge. I'll be able with my canoe and the 2.5hp, but with the raft and trolling motor ... well ... maybe, maybe not.
Have the bike as an escape route and hope no one steals the battery or motor. I can lock the raft with the bike's lock.
It's worth a shot.
Maybe that's what I'll do on my birthday. I always try to fish on my birthday (and it almost never works out that way). This year I got it on the work calendar early enough, and I actually know where my stuff is, and with any luck no one will need to go to the hospital or be picked up from there. All these are things that have prevented me from fishing on my birthday. One year there was even a family funeral. My birthday cake was done back at the house during the wake after the memorial service - a very strange affair. This year - maybe the bass will help me to celebrate.
