Another call from Coach just before noon today. He said it was a long night. Ended up throwing his sleeping bag on somebody's dock.
He has gone through the Rainbow Flowage (pictured above - they call backwaters behind dams in Wisconsin "flowages") and has made the portage. The Rainbow Dam is about 12 miles southeast of the town of Woodruff, my favorite Wisconsin town.
Lovely warm day, no breeze yet, nice lazy river. Intends to make Rhinelander this afternoon.
