    I picked up a new boat yesterday, and rather than take 84 back through Oregon, decided on 95 through Cambridge, New Meadows, Riggins, and Lewiston, ID. I intended to see Kooksia and the "megaloads" waiting there, but the weather had other ideas. Sunny but deadly cold all day. A great diversion.

    During college, I took an old bucket boat (UDISCO) from Riggins downriver, and was pleased today to find familiar turns, rapids, and a return to the Palouse some 21 years later. I saw a few guys fishing for Steelhead in a big, deep pool.
