"I got talking to a gentleman. Me: "How ya doin'?" Him: "Pretty good - I'm almost home." Me: "I've got a way to go." Him: "Where ya headed?" Me: "New Hampshire." Him: "Uh...it's the other way."

I had almost the same conversation in a canoe in the dark once. Was working for Natural Resources documenting trout spawning beds (by going out at night with spotlights and finding them doing it...tres kinky) and we couldn't figure out why the inlet we needed to find wasn't materializing--saw a light, called out to the cottager and he hollered back "You're on the wrong lake!" Turned out we had gone the wrong direction at put-in. Duh.

Well I will be looking up Edmund and Char later today to take possession of that autoharp--thanks Jim! I'll let you know how it seems..

Dang it sounds like you guys had fun. Probably WORTH freezing half to death...
