Day 72: Riggins to Riggins - Salmon River float trip

Sunday July 27, 1986

Riding hard the last 2 days was enough for me to take a rest day. Besides, I got a free raft trip from a guide I met last night in the bar. He offered me a trip because things were slow and sometimes it helps to even out the paddlers. I was kinda worried about my stuff, (my wallet and camera) but the girl at the outfitter took care of it in the office for me. The raft trip was 2.5 hours on the Salmon River. The river was pretty lame but it was a nice time goofing around on the water, especially for free.

The weather was a perfect 82 degrees and sunny today, after the raft trip I sat in the bar and watched some baseball on TV. I haven't seen hardly any baseball in 2 months, and I've been wondering about the Tigers. (yeah baby, the TIGERS, best team in baseball right now!) The rest of the day I just walked around a little bit and just relaxed with nobody really to talk to or much to do here in Riggins.

I've been pretty bored since Missoula, maybe I should have rode with Clay and the rest of the survivors from the Missoula Massacre. I guess Rich and Sheryl went home, so that leaves just Fred, Diane, Clay. That would have been a fun small group to be part of. I wonder who is carrying all the group gear? It probably got ditched in Missoula.

[Author's Note:] - I was wrong about Rich and Sheryl as noted above. Stay tuned for more on them.
