When one buys a lottery ticket, its common to dream of how they are going to spend the money.  That is the easy part.  Managing the money and the people coming out of the woods in the difficult part. 
No, I have not won the Powerball, but I did win a permit to float the Main Salmon River late July.  Imagine this dream: 7 days, six nights traveling the River of No Return.  Idaho summer heat, water cool and refreshing to swim in, sandy beaches, and only the people in the group to play, talk, or be silent with.  Ahh, the joy.  But the reality is being picky of who to invite on the river trip.  Of course everyone wants to come along, but who can pilot a raft?  Who is willing to paddle in an inflatable kayak?  I have been out of the river loop for so long, my boating connections are minimal.  To anyone who actually reads this post, should you want to come and have or know someone who has a raft (and can pilot it), feel free to contact me. What's the worst to happen, I can say "NO".

I drove out to Moscow Thursday to house hunt.  The vehicle was loaded with items to go back into the storage unit.  Along the way I encountered freezing rain.  The rain along with road filth coated my vehicle.  Here is a picture of the raft frame and dry box on top my car, 1 hour after the freezing rain storm.
