Once again, the River Rapido

It took the American Army three tries to cross the River Rapido in WW II, because of the strong currents and poor plans badly executed. Our band of pilgrims was given the same assignment today because of someone's improbable belief that medieval pilgrims crossed the river on flatboats pulled along ropes. We got across on the first try with no casualties, despite planning that couldn't have been any better than the last crossing. It was pretty chaotic.
