Wilko Sized Trip Reports in 1998

This year started out rather well, with several daytrips and longer holidays that allowed me to write trip reports for the Rec.Boats.Paddle newsgroup.

Unfortunately this was also the year in which my friend Scott Bristow died while paddling. Except for the Big South Fork and Tellico trip report below, that dreadful month of December 1998 is described in the first of the 1999 trip reports.
