Guides Explain: Scouting a Rapid

There are moments in a trip where a guide gets tense and quiet as they come around a bend in the river. You see the signal to pull over being passed down from boat to boat and, one by one, each guide directs their raft into an eddy on the side of the river. They hop off, go tie up the boat, and come back to announce:

"We're going to scout a rapid."

Warm, buttery biscuit, gooey overeasy egg, rich cheddar cheese, and hearty sausage, all melded together in one incredible sandwich. What more could you want after waking up to a cool, refreshing morning at camp? I found this recipe on The Jelly Toast blog, and it's a keeper! 

We Are (River) Family

“…[the river] It’s brother and sister to me, and aunts, and company, and food and drink, and (naturally) washing. It’s my world, and I don’t want any other. What it hasn’t got is not worth having, and what it doesn’t know is not worth knowing.” – Kenneth Grahame The Wind in the Willows
