just got off the owyhee at ~11,000 cfs. ran the north fork, the middle section and the lower section. put in in blinding snow and took out in sun. the trip was pretty epic due in part to a couple heavily loaded rafts on the trip.
grand total: 7 swimmers, 4 wraps, 4 or 5 lost or busted oars, 2 flips, 2 broken oar towers, 1 broken raft seat, 1 z-drag, 1 overturned semi with trapped driver screaming for help, 1 blown yakima rack, 1 screaming match at the Rome access resulting in 1 person taking her ball and going home, 1 pre-arranged boat tow across the lake a no show, 0 fatalities!
widowmaker is a big one - but lots of fun. me and my buddy took an 11 foot puma raft thru R2 style and aced it. video coming soon...
