in previous years at Fargo we started at first light. We were all prepairing our boats using flash lights and head lanterns, and I always cringed for the first mile or so since we were guessing their would be no sweepers in front of us.
I plan on being on a SC river|

the only boat I take thru there is my plastic SOT. All my other boats get carried around the shoals. Hope there is enough water to run the shoals so I can record everyone who does.
ken, saw your gear|

but no signs of life at the campsite at Big Shoals when we came portaging through. Ran through Little Shoals on the far left without any trouble...
We were sitting down by the shoals|

waiting for someone to run thru them. As far as I know only 4 boats went thru them. Only got a movie of the last one. Will try to post it soon.
