Riverrat47, that is true. Been many times through the years we'd run upstream on the ramp side using the bluff as a break then turn nose into the wind trim the bow up and angle across the slough into the wind. Been many times I've turned around and went home too...LOL. Even a couple of times I spent the night on the islands too. I carry a possibles box on the boat with a dry bag that includes items for making a shelter, hatchet, parachute cord, multi-tool, lighter, box of farmer matches, plastic bag of dryer lint, small led light on a lanyard, extra batteries, Colman emergency heater that can heat food or water, fleece blanket, Boy Scout type cookset, bottle of water, instant coffee, a can of pork and beans and TP.
