Bailey is good to go...
Me, Pete (Pbell), Juan (Rastaman), and Bridger pulled, roughly, 100 assorted pieces of wood from the first 3-4 miles of Bailey today. We got on the run at 12:30, got off at 6--and the run should be clean. We ended up taking 5 pieces of plywood, but there are at least a couple submerged that we couldn't get to; we took out 2 x 12's, 2 x 8's, 2 x 4 x12's and on and on. It was ridiculous. The other thing that was a concern are the bottles of "Bituthene 4000" that we found floating free in the water, as well as a similar substance that we found by the gallons in leaky plastic bags--we pulled one such bag out of the river which was half full and leaking completely into the river. If you look up the chemical, it is water based, but toxic...
In any event, there was no wood left in the river below four falls. But, I wouldn't say that all is perfect there as there was some wood yet to be pulled that we couldn't see (I'm sure) or access.
