the still water game has been good to me. except for today. i didn’t even stop to take a piss. 10 hours straight. that’s probably why i have a headache right now. but who stops for a drink when you are getting your ass handed to you?
the wind nearly broke me. next time i’ll bring two anchors.
i put in the work from the moment the boat slid off the trailer until the CLACK-TING, CLACK-TING of my winch echoed from bank to bank and it slide back on. i loaded my gear, put on the strap and checked the trailer lights. i rubbed my wind burnt face and stretched my back and that is when it hit me. the wind had stopped. the final fuck you.
it’s always been hard to leave this place. except for today.
