umm, if the second ferry pool is really the end of the world (id rather call it paradise now!) .. then i mean the first ferry pool..

at 800 the landing (to the big one after the ferry pool, at the end of the major portage) was behind a surface level seive, which might be an underwater hazard now .. if you mean there are two ferry pools in the major portage then im lost in the head-model .

frankly .. my drytops are trash (more or less) and i wont go into a canyon this time of year without proper gear .. but of course that means im a neck gasket away from year round boating. plus im an athsmatic midget who smokes profusely off the water, i couldnt keep up with a determined parapalegic on the portage. spraining my ankles or worse during a portage is the biggest deterrant to black canyon madness for me. black canyon is a mandatory two days for me, even if i am less mellow than i like to be. harmonica jams until springtime, maybe a trip somewhere in december i dunno.

milo, I've been meaning to get out down south and meet a genuine JRranger420CB. I've got aspirations of maybe one day becoming a deputy JRranger420. I do have to admit that I'm a little timid about hitting the Montrose Box in december at high water... I ran gore two sundays ago and nearly froze to death. The 10 day weather looks like 37 degree highs. I wont make it this upcoming week, but there is a chance for the following week. What are your thoughts? Might as well git some...
