Last Boating of the Season...

Any of you guys done for the year? If not, what else do you have planned? I got in piss-poor few days this year, but want to get a little more in before I do my annual wash of my river clothes

It takes a big man to cry...It takes an even bigger man to laugh at that man.

Ah, the joy of the last run of the season. I've done about 4 "last gore run of the season" trips. Hoping to do at least one more. Boating season is over when the rivers ice over and the powder is deep enough to ride. Boating season is not over yet!

scraped down Foxton and Waterton last week probably at least hit Waterton again ,pre -Broncos ritual if it is 65+%.Bailey if it gets over 200 and is upper 60's,never done Gore not fond of cold weather swims.Big T has some water.

Probably will be less people traveling this winter due to the economy,but if you can there will be good deals on flights and hotels.

Westwater on the 17/18. Done it many times but never as an overnight, figure late October has to be best weather for that

ill hit shoshone or the junction town run or whatever is close if anyone is down.....let me know!
