If the water levels are good for a first timer Sunday or Monday I would be down to go. I would love a good guide and crew. I live in Salida, my name is Phil. Any beta on the logistics would also help...hike in, poison oak, etc.

Captain Black Jack Milo,

Good to see you got out OK, hope the beer was cold, and it wasn't too dark at the take-out. I should've stayed after this weekend. I can't believe it's at 1840 now!

We're still crackin' up about Steve's "Texas" flag and his love for Gorge W. What a hoot! You two guys are characters! Daytime soap: "Boofs of our Lives".

Thanks everything and see you later,

black canyon - thanks

milo -
thanks for the 'support' after the long portage. we wound up camping at the cave camp. had big fire, hung out in the warm night full of stars. a little sore the next morning, but we got 'er done. also want to thank nick for shuttle and snacks at the take out. he earned his karma points. truly a special and powerful place! respect it! peace.

Milo, thanks for the beer that was a nice offering. Unfortunately, try as we did, were unable to open the sacred ale. The all knowing bottle mocked us and called us sissies for portaging all the big stuff. "Only those with large cajones who have no plans of dying from old age may drink me" it said. So let it be known to all the buzzards who think their a man, a sacred ale awaits you in the depths of the mighty black if your worthy.

That shit was big!

Does anyone have a forecast for the phlows this weekend. Will it stay above 600 or are they going to turn it back down to 400 or so. It looks like they are waisting not time shutting the water off. Thanks, Matt
