Big T Ride

Ok, so I haven't exchanged my egg shell balls back into brass at 800 cfs. Ran the upper T to just above 1st gnar drop. For you aspiring newbees get on it. Don't dismiss this section as there are some 'boat stuffer' holes and a few 'johnny-on-the-spot' IV- rapids. Lengthy III boogie water make this a 'no-stress' happy face run.

Kudos to the blue Jefe and green Burn drivers thru that IV+ rapid section I witnessed. Of course the Jefe is a crowd pleaser with the animated plops and boofs, but was equally impressed with the 'smooth' ride the burn seems to take in stride. I wish these Pros wouldn't make it look so easy...

wood alert

Forgot to add two strainers river wide just above the handicapped fish park area. First one just above the park pullout is subtle as I was on it before I could eddy out. Tried to pop over it without success. Now I remember what fun it is to broach on a bloody log. Next one below park area can be topped but be ready to dig deep and hard right as the T will push you on top/against a boulder. No worries though as you can contemplate your circumstance while you push off rock with left hand and enter that screaming whitewater to the takeout. Oh Lord how I love the Big T...
