Paddling up and back from Monte Rio
I met Ray down at Monte Rio this morning as we wanted to explore from Monte Rio up as we are leading our eighth grade class reunion up there maybe next week and we wanted to see how the river was after a hard winter.
We put in at the boat ramp below the bridge and had to get out and walk through the water to get up through the shallows just below the bridge.
Lots of duckies this year
Nasty plastic stuff in the river
This female wood duck had a good clutch of duckies too. Note the nasty plastic stuff on the left polluting the river. They use all kinds of plastic stuff for erosion control and it’s all going to end up like this piece, in the river.
Merganser eats crawdad
We are coming up on the Bohemian Club’s hole just ahead.
Deer up there Ray
We went a little further up the river then turned and started a drift on down the river in the river’s current.
All tired out
Opening up the van’s fridge vent
After a good nap I went outside and worked on my van a bit. I needed to open up the vent on the back of the fridge as I’ve noticed when the van is sitting in the sun it gets hot near the ceiling and the cooler stops cooling, so I need to let the air flow over it’s cooling fins better. I’m also thinking of putting a small 12 volt fan on it to improve the cooling on a hot day.
The rest of the day I spent puttering around with things in the van and that was my day.
