Tonight I got in some good study. My project was to try to symbolize and label all the anatomy parts that I need to know for my cadaver lab exam--on one page. It was tight but I believe I got every essential word and term on there, with some indication as to its whereabouts.
Tomorrow is the first week of final exams. Mostly it involves reviews with a few exams and lots of assigments due. Somehow a whole week of Thanksgiving break went by without my really doing all that much schoolwork. I guess it's a good thing.
I did get on the river the other day, the Clackamas from some power station to Bob's Hole at about 1,500 CFS. I don't know how long the run was but I'd guess 6-7 miles. We had a group of 9 that had met up online via PDX kayaker. I had met Susan when Suzanne and I drove up the Clack the day prior, and that was how I found out about the kayak trip. The weather was cold and windy, and most people were wearing full drysuits and pogies. I certainly was. The run is rated class III and that's about right. The group was beginner-intermediate and I was by far the most experienced paddler there. They were all afraid to go into the rapids, and waited for one guy to give them the scoop about how to run it. I just went ahead, catching eddies and waves as I could on the way through. The last three miles had some good play on it that will get better when the water is up. I met another paddler that I would boat with again, so that's two people for my the boating circle already.
