Howdy

 

I just drove 1056 miles over two days to retrieve my wood canvas canoe from Grand Forks, BC, CA.

 

I took an asphalt shortcut up and over a Colville forest ridge line from Gran Coulee to Republic, WA.

 

One amazing scene was where several miles of guard rail posts had burned entirely away during recent wildfires .

 

In some cases there were 6 X 6 inch holes in the ground where the pressure treated posts had burned.

 

The metal guard rails were warped and just laying where they dropped.

I bet it's great to have your boat back after all this time.

Enjoy your paddles.

I have seen the evidence, and declare the canoe to be real!  It looks great!
