The difference between Cat in the 50's and cat in the 80's is like the difference between the 30's and 50's. The big shit gets bigger. I remember going down there after a season in the 50's-70's, doing a deso trip and coming back when it was in the 40's. The guide giving the safety talk gave the 70k cfs talk, and when I got in there, I was like all relieved and casual that it was only in the 40's. I was down there the last 2 years in the 40's and that was big enough to remind me that the big stuff must be really big.
