We left McDade and headed upriver. Halfway back we passed Jeff Kriet, so it's clear that he abandoned the pond by the ramp sooner than he did yesterday. Now we are trying to find the cut that Alton Jones is reputed to be in. Overstreet had the understatement of the day as we were stuck on a mud flat: "it's always an adventure." With a little bit of 4wd action we got off of it without getting too wet and we're on the hunt again.
