We thought we might have an awards sweep but alas the guys just couldn’t get that extreme tire to stay on the kayak…it only weighed about 250*lbs.…….go figure

(*The tire was only 100lbs, the rest was mud!)

We had some fun along the trip with the john boat too but,

Capitan Mike was very skilled!

Anyway, we made the take out and found our newest friends.. 

the support volunteers that got the trash,

watch out world… they young, strong, smart and really

don’t mind getting trashed!
