Guest post written by Michelle Huston, ACA member and active "green paddler" on the Potomac River in West Virginia.

The shore area we hiked our gear into yesterday for the first time in a few months was a mess. Two full paddle green bags and two defunct buoys in only about 100 yards of shoreline. We're going to need to get a bigger boat and a dump truck, soon. We sat a large trash can, several tires, and another 55-gallon drum aside up the bank (out of all but major flood zone) so we can get them later on when we have time to bring the pick-up truck along.
