Day 4 as good as it gets?
Day 4 and the groove set in just right. Just enough knowledge to fire up the big ones and not enough to remember all the class 4. Had a great crew out again today - 2, 3, and 4 equals 9 in a group after a boat split at Cool World. Still the smallest group I've been with all week.
The stength of the bitchathane patch I won at OB race ...sealed a 10 crack right under the seat of a older Deisel from Cool World down - Warren ran every drop anyway - but 'boink' since we thought it might finish the patch.
Paddling with Zack Hubbard again - the guy's still got the smooth WV style for sure.
Realizing the guy who's nailing all the lines and barely scouting is Matt Wilson.
Cruising to Fantasy Flight with Glen with no eddies but the bridge portage.
Being in a group where at least 5 boats ran every rapid - with no carnage.
best of all:
Finally stepping up the the shit! Dropped Cool World and Double 1st time today, finished it off by portaging the t/o wood and running lower gorge, then portaging the sieve left: knocking off the bottom drops (Nice 'over' line, Matt) then floating to the parking lot. Great way to top off an incredible stay in Big South Campground. The mosquitos have finally won - I'm outta here.
