Planning ahead is important because we have a record four RRCC members flying in, from three different time zones and two countries. We'll also have drivers coming from all different directions. For the first time in a long time, however, no one will be arriving by Vigor. It passed away quitely in the off season of its 20th year, one trip short of its 10th canoe trip.
The Acura Vigor may not have looked flashy, but she was definitely slow. The Vigor had enough hauling capacity to carry the full sized grub cooler, all the Dutch Ovens and guitars, plus one wet Lab. And was specially engineered to drive windows-down without ashing on the back seat. Its finest hour was safely delivering Rob to the Eleven Point River, in the dark of night, through the washboard gravel roads and meth labs of southern Missouri. Don't try that in your sister's white Lexus.
