"the woman inflated her sleeping pad and used it to continue travelling down the river".
Anyone ever heard of such a thing? Wow.

Makes me wonder... I'm doing 3 weeks in Wabakimi with my brother this summer. We argue well, for lack of a better description.

Choose your partners well. I've been lucky.

Makes one wonder what the argument was all about... ground sheet inside or outside the tent? Peeing in the lake? Arguments over Moffat's death? Canoe vs kayak? Campsite littering? Who does the cooking? Not enough whiskey? Too much whiskey?

Gosh. There's publishable material here. Makes the six o'clock news for sure.

Criminal Negligence, if there's a charge,

Thankfully no bodily harm or death here, expect charges in those cases,

You are probably right, but there is also the possibility that the canoeist felt threatened and fled or that the mattress captain told her to GTFO.

Have to say I admire her improvisation skills for floating down river on her sleeping pad.... she's should audition for Alone or one of the other survival show....

I'm thinking the producers of "naked and afraid" should reach out to both women - you know how those "reality" shows love conflict!!!

I guess there is a temptation to use teat this as a joke in these dismal times and that was my first reaction too. But that was a really dangerous thing to do. The woman may well have died. I assume that charges will be laid against the other person. Let the court decide whom to believe in the 'she said, but she said' testimony.

I thought this was going to be a call for tales of the Worst Paddling Partners Ever.

Which I will take to a separate thread.
