Woods Island, Vermont

“OCTOBER 10, 2009: With our plans made we were ready to go.  Somehow Alan left Philadelphia by 3 AM and made it to Bruce’s house in Schodack by seven or so.  They both were at my house in Troy before 8:30 for the four-hour drive to Kill Kare in Vermont.  We arrived around 1:30 and immediately began loading gear for the paddle to Woods Island that we could easily see in the distance.”    Thus begins the Woods Island Misadventure.  Watch the video for a first hand account.
