Half Safe made me do it


David Derer

Lots of rain has swollen the usually docile Rock River. Friday got
Margie out of work on time and we went to Dixon. We watched a big tree
race down stream. River was about 10 feet higher than normal. I thought
what the heck Half Safe survived water battles. We got our life jackets
out. We were moving! It actually felt like a boat. The hot rod motor
needed all of its strength to go against current. Against current we
were almost at stand still. Keeping an eye out for big trees floating
by. We made it to Sterling in record breaking time. Margie had a great
"Eleanor" attitude. I want to make custom fuel tank, I wonder how many
gallons I would need to get to Cuba? Chicago river run coming soon.
