I had the opportunity to paddle for a week in ID with Kevin Colburn from AW.
He had mentioned that the Cheesman issue had been forged ahead by his team at AW.
I checked the AW website and sure enough there was a few late 2007 access issues resolved.
This is great news for a run that will surely be a hit this summer.
I have included a link for your access: If you plan on paddling, please read this link.
