California is having an INCREDIBLE snow year, 278% if I was able to read the chart correctly. Myself and 2 others are going to make the voyage the first week of April to Northern California to start the 2005 paddling season off on a high note. Temperatures that time of year are around 60-70 degrees and this year the water should be BIG!
I'm sending this note out to welcome those that have an interest in going. We have room for at least 3 more. All you need is your boats (play and creek), a sleeping bag and a willingness to tap into what could be some of the best boating you will ever experience. You will only need to pay for food and any extra-curricular's you need. I have already arranged overnight stays with some friends (showers!!) in Reno but we will be camping a few nights as well. The boating will range from Class IV-IV+ playboating to Class V-V+ creekboating. Don't be discouraged though because California offers incredible boating for every level of paddler and no one will be disappointed on the drive home. I'll list the "Most Likely Suspects" below you can be research them or if you have any questions. Just shoot me an email if you have an interest and I'll expand on the details. See some incredible scenery and paddle EPIC rivers. You will never paddle better rivers for less money.
North Fork American-- Generation Gap- Class V-V+
Giant Gap- Class V-V+
Chamberlain Falls- Class IV+ (great playboating)
South Fork Yuba-- 49-Bridgeport- Class V+ !!!
Donnar Pass Class IV-V+ (some VI @#$@$? )

---And Reno's whitewater park, I've heard it's pretty good......
