Had I known the story about Gary and the eggs, I would have brought some eggs with me today. Phinney called me up yesterday asking if I wanted to go to Bear Creek with him. I told him I had this gut feeling that it was not something I could run, he tells me to scout it out and decide for myself... I'm a beginner boater. Ass!
So...I was the shuttle bunny today.
Bear Creek was way low today (Sat. 4.24.10). I witnessed Phinney end up in a vertical pin in the rapids before no fun falls. He went river left of the exploding wave and ended up pinned. It was a horribly loud thunderous noise. I heard it from over 100 yards away. I seriously thought that he'd cracked his boat.
