Default Remember BRD Grand Adventure?

Who's heard the audio tape of a certain BRD telling how he was able to "liberate" some of the article from the RQ before she became a total wreck? He described the "decks at a 45-degree angle"; slipping off them and sliding into the freezing water. And I could only imagine how those icy decks looked until I saw Miss Ferris' photographs.

Various tiny tid-bits of river history, such a B's narration, above, will be lost soon, I'm sure, as they are only vignettes of the broad spectrum of the story of the river. We all have these scraps in our collections, and they would make an interesting conglomeration if assembled in some sort of medium for the record.
