- Trip Reports
Thank you! Dang, had I known about BR-18 I would have gone over there. First time in there did not really know were things were. Yeah I was casting my fly rod in the wind Sat afternoon and I think that is what acted it up. Its been sore since I was rearended by a driver on their phone in May. Plus I was pretty tired from the previous day hiking and was just happy to be up there. If I had friends with me I would have gone up to McPheters. The LifeStraw is great for long walks. I only had 24 oz of water with me when I started and drank my last of it right as I arrived at Ryder Lake. Having it for lunch and not having to use my water and just drinking it from the river was awesome. I wont leave home with out it from now on. I think on short trips I will not even bring water and just pack it because most of the short hops have water on the way in if I needed it.
