Special Comments: 

* All downstream with westerly winds, if you're lucky.
* Be ready to manouvre Otter- slide Creek's twists,turns
and many beaver dams.
* There is no cell phone service in Brent and the old public pay phone in Brent is nonfunctional, so prearrange your pick-up, or arrange to use the satellite phone at the Brent store as I did (ahead of time would be best).
