We were at homeland security threat level red all day. That is the highest level possible. Those foreign invading asian carp we dive bombing all day. After stopping at a riverside Mississippi River Museum for water and indoor plumbing, the terrorist moved to defcon 2. Less than a mile from the stop, I heard the splash of the fish cannon. It was a shot across the bow of the boat. The fish slammed into front haul with a thud. I freaked then laughed. My head was on a swivel. My mind was racing thinking what would I really do if one landed in my boat. I brushed it off and got back to paddling letting my guard down. That's when it happened. The enemy fired a torpedo under water. I raced towards me without a sound. A sneak attack. Then, IMPACT. I didn't have time to sound the alarm. No time to brace for impact. It launched out of the water and was a direct hit. A kamikaze fish. It missed the boat completely but slammed into my left arm. I never even saw it coming or going. It was a hard hit. One like when an older kid who doesn't know his own strength punches you in the arm. I screamed like anyone would do when a large fish jumps out of the water and tags you. After calming down I reached up to see if I was bleeding. When I grabbed my sleeve there was no blood. Just fish slime. I have been lucky to not have any soreness other than sunburn this entire trip...untill now. My bicep hurt the rest of the day. When I got through the rest of the day without any more attacks, I thought about lowering the threat level down a bit but had a flash back to the cowardly and Rachel earlier, and decided to stay on full alert through out the night to make sure the carp arnt stalking me.
