Detailed report of the clearing and cutting last spring. I have paddled from Scott Bridge to Walsingham several times. One time I cracked my Pungo Ultralight on a Cypress Knee. Another paddler had duct tape which saved the day. I will only take a regular Pungo from now on. Of course the next flood brought down more trees, and we had lots of rain this summer, and high water. Still the efforts helped, and I paddled from Walsingham to SR 20 a few days after the cutting to take advantage of the work.
