This is about where I'm at.
I feel as if I've regressed a bit this year. I'm a class IV- boater, but I'm having mental and comfort issues stepping up beyond that on a regular basis. I want to be absolutely confident with my boating before stepping up to regular must-make moves and serious consequences. So I guess I'm straddling that line between pushing myself and honing my skills. In doing so I find myself playboating 80% of the time, and running rivers the rest.
In the meantime, I'd like to run more rivers beyond the Payettes this year. Bruneau, Murtaugh, and Lochsa are on my lists.
