Bailey and new log problem

We just got off Bailey and were surprised by a log that has moved into place about a mile below deer creek blocking the entire river. There is a nasty sieve in the dead middle, with exposed log all the way across. We portaged. There are logs piling up behind this one on the left at this point. There is an easy enough eddy out above this obstacle, so unless you completely fall asleep, you should have plenty of time. The one concern we had was that at 288 cfs (level tonight), you could see the logs pretty well, but if the water gets much higher, it will be harder to see, and a nasty hazard. I will try to post a pic I took as soon as I figure out how to on the Buzz.

This has been there for most if not all of the season. It's been discussed in other threads already, but thanks for trying to give boaters a heads up anyway in case they missed the other threads. At higher water though it's easily boatable.

I could retitle this thread: "Bailey and a new log problem for me..."

Maybe it'll help another newbie like myself.

Thanks for posting the picture, Marc. I think our crew in late May was one of the first to find it this season, and we didn't notice it until we were boofing it and asking ourselves, "What's this?" It's good to have perspective of what's underneath. That slot in the middle is pretty scary. It's a fun boof at higher water, but we'll need to pull that out sometime soon.

It's just below the rapid that has the under cut left rock.

either (1) your sarcasm isn't coming across or (2) you're being a internet tool. the original post is about kayaking, which far too few threads are these days on the buzz. and its timely, since it is (fingers crossed) bailey season. not everyone has time to look at every past post in the alerts forum, or boater's forum, as the case may be. this thread serves the purpose of no one going under a badly placed log during low flows in the canyon. so, shut your cake hole, or try to indicate you're joking next time.

Word. Last time I was there, above about 400 you can run the right side. At higher water it's no longer a problem anywhere unless you're upside down. At low water we portaged.

Continued alerts are always good, thanks for posting.

Marc, you're just a pansy. If I ever meet you, I'm going to say that you're just a big fat, uh, just a big fat pansey.

Loop, I picked up on the sarcasm, but I keep my meter well calibrated.

What I want to know is why the hell didn't the boater with the sharpest teeth gnaw that shit down to 2X4's and build us all a sweet lodge to party in right on the river?

In all seriousness, thanks for the picture, and Vince for the description.

I still think we should let Deepsouth name every class II- or above rapid on this run. It's so hard to document your BPM (boofs per mile) or just spray about your outrageous sikness when you don't have every rock named. On our more established rivers to the east of here you could say that you boofed _____ rock on _____ drop just before the _____ move. SIIICCKKK!
Damn it feels good

I hearby name that drop... "panties in a wad". When its choked by wood, its called "there's wood in my panties".

Thanks for the update Marc, and a picture is worth 1000 words. Some folks have seen it already, but not everyone has, and not everyone has the time to memmorize every log alert on the buzz.

Freemont, lets go sick the beavers on that log one day. I can go tomorrow.
