Sometimes a story sounds so good when told to a group of friends around the campfire. Most of the time, those stories are best left there, to be enjoyed in pleasant memory. Up Shit Creek is one of those books, best left at the campfire, or probably in the campfire after reading part of it.

The basic line is that when you are out rafting, everything you bring in, must come out. Hence the need for a groover-a bucket to do your stuff in. The name groover comes from the grooves the unit leaves on the legs when it gets used.

As you can imagine, this book talks about the mishaps which occur on rafting trips, usually to the guides. One or two stories, you chuckle. After that, its repetitive. Hence, the book holds your attention for lets say, 10 minutes. Enough said.
