This chapter recounts a fall misadventure when Hill and one of his grad students, Mark Liu, take a weekend trip to a new area on the Choctawhatchee River. The two explorers find areas with huge cypress trees and signs of Ivory-billed Woodpecker activity. By making some incorrect assumptions about where they were on the river, they get far off track and barely make it back to their vehicles by nightfall. Getting lost in kayaks is used as a metaphor for how searches for Ivory-billed Woodpeckers can wander off course if searchers are not careful about their assumptions.
