John - Thank you for the information and head's up. Looking back at my calendar it looks like '03 was the last time I was up there. Doesn't seem like that long ago, part of getting old I suppose. Three of us ran it in open canoes then. Two of us ran it pretty clean, one guy dumped on the first wave at Kahuna and had to swim through Lunch Counter. Other than that it was uneventful. This year I'll probably be solo so I wanted to make sure it was close to the same as it was then. Clean banks, minimal strainers, no new 'gotchas' created by the slide, etc.
