Wednesday, September 26th, 2007. Eagle Lake, Maine. Darrin rose before dawn to avoid paddling in heavy winds. With the exception of a 20-minute downpour, the paddle was uneventful. He made it the Jaws Campsite on Churchill Lake just before lunchtime.

He had eaten his trail lunch as a quick pre-dawn breakfast, so now he prepared himself a hot breakfast before setting up camp. After this brunch, the sun came out and dried his wet tent and gear. It wasn’t long, however, before a thunderstorm rolled in. The cloudburst was brief. It was followed by a welcome drop in the humidity, and a picturesque double rainbow.

Darrin enjoyed the company of a polite chipmunk during dinner. Unlike Ballsy, and other pestering rodents Darrin had met, this chipmunk watched patiently as Darrin ate. He quietly waited for whatever crumbs fell to the ground. After dinner, Darrin enjoyed a good campfire and went to sleep.
