Vaccinations for the Military

Looks suspicious as usual. If you play the utube clip, it's a news report about one kid who had an adverse reaction, and the news channel insinuating that the military is using servicemen as guinea pigs.

Here's the short list of vaccines that may be adminstered to those who serve:
Adenovirus, Types 4 and 7
Yellow Fever
Hepatitis A
Yellow Fever
Hepatitis B
Measles, Mumps, Rubella
Small Pox

Trip Report: Clackamas River, Fish to Bob's

Went paddling with Susan again today. The river was running about 900 CFS, which is headed toward low water. Susan has a torn hamstring and was more uncomfortable than usual in her boat, but the water was the lowest we've seen it yet, so it balanced out. We're getting comfortable paddling together. It was a lovely warm day.

I used the lightning paddle that my friend R built, and it was so light and easy! I rolled three times on each side at the put-in and confirmed what I already know, that the wooden paddle I have been using makes it harder to roll. We started catching more eddies in this's just getting low enough to HAVE lots of eddies. I guess I am a low water boater, because all those eddies make me happy. I am still not satisfied with my kayak. I guess I should find another one that I won't complain about every time I use it. I wish for the one that I left behind in Flagstaff, in T&T's garage, my old Inazone 240. So what if it has a big dent in the hull?
