So the guys are on their 4th day out from Mokhotlong, on a leg that was supposed to take 3 days, but was hoped to take 2 days. They should be at the rendezvous point sometime after lunch today. The river is much lower than anticipated and even the rain we have had has not been able to escape infiltration and bolster streamflow.
Just to show you a brief view of what a “better” section of river looks like. Still hoping it gets better as we move into the flatter water downstream. The photo doesn’t do it justice, but the deepest part of those channels is less than knee deep, on a Devon sized human being.
