On the cusp of yet another north Idaho weekend in boater paradise, I pause to thank our WA neighbors for allowing us to use their waterways for free. Let's look at what awaits us: First stop, Sprague Lake, aka Long Lake, aka Long Turd Lake. It is the final resting place for the treated waste of a half million people.
