Plan A

Raft at Scofield ReservoirI did something a little foolish (but fun!) yesterday. Somebody had placed a geocache on the island at Scofield Reservoir, and I wanted to be the first to find it, so I took my little kiddie raft up there and tried rowing out to it. Mark came with me, and we had planned on taking turns rowing out while the other sat on the beach. The closest we could get to the island from shore was 0.75 miles, so it would have been a 1.5 mile round trip. I didn’t quite get halfway to the island before I heard air escaping from the raft, so I quickly turned around and rowed back to shore and made it back without losing much air in the raft. I’m not sure I would have made it all the way to the island anyway because my arms and back were already very sore. I’ll bet I looked pretty funny to all the boaters who were out on the water. I’d like to make another try with a rented canoe sometime this week, but I’m not sure that’s gonna happen because I’m working all week, and evenings aren’t a good time to be out on the water in a small craft. My next two weekends are booked, so if the cache is still not found in the next three weeks, I’ll definitely get another chance at it.
