Alton makes it look easy

We managed to get unstuck just in time to see how Alton Jones gets in and out of the cut. First he used his big motor to jump a big log. Then he went back to the trolling motor and meandered to and fro across the same inches-deep shallow mud that had impeded our forward progress. He made it look easy.
