Would you say “Toast”?
One thing I’ve learned over the years is it ain’t over til it’s over. Too often we rule things out without a thorough examination of the situation at hand. And thinking laterally instead of vertically, one can often find solutions to seemingly unsolvable problems. Problem is, there’s a 10 foot long tear in the side of my boat, and it won’t hold air while it’s all torn up like that. And if it doesn’t hold air, it’s not a boat as much as a lot of rubber and plastic that I have to carry around. hhhmmm, wait a minute .. what’s that, under the deck, on the back of the torn up seat? Is it, could it be??? It is? Joy, look what I found:
A REPAIR KIT!!!! (you can see my salty, watery dinners drying out in the background)
Now, let me see how I can make this work?
Does it go here?
I know. I’ll call the company who makes these little repair kits and order three hundred more of them, and I should be right as rain. 🙂
I figured I’d be hiking and walking around the Yakutat area the rest of this trip.
I’m heading into the field. Check in every few days for some more image and posts I’ve scheduled for while I’m away. No more bear stories (for now) though.
