I read that earlier and thought “wow , are they ever lucky”.   Maybe luck isn’t quite the word..more like amazing!

I was canoeing in Lake Union a couple of weeks back, and found a message in a bottle. At first I thought it was litter, and fished it out, then saw a child's writing and drawing in crayon inside, so I set it back to floating. I hope I  didn't doom some little kid.  frown.gif

The rescue via bottle message is kind of cool, but the story is bizarre even aside from that.  His whole trip hinged on a massive rappel on a rope that he saw there 7 years prior?  And he was going to do it with a kid?  And how was he going to get his boat down?

He was going to forage for a really big bottle.

Presumably this was a very small boat? Like an innertube or other inflatable? The canyon is less than 6' wide below the waterfall. Pretty  cool place.
