I remember ...

It had gone wrong before, two times ...

The first was in november 2010: a failure in Guido's car left us on the road to San Vito. We spent the whole day to bring Guido and his car back to Cagliari, and that was our last day in Sardinia ...

The second time was in march 2011. Our canyoning programs were heavily changed by 20 hours of continuous rain. The streams we had planned to explore were charged by cube meters of flow. Riu Brecca had something less than one cube meter per second of muddy water rumbling down ... We gave up.

At last, in april we had the third chance, and it was the right one!
