New wood for Vallecito?

So I just saw this in the paper today; I guess they just blew up a big ol wood pile a ways upstream of the gorge. I dont know what exactly they're doing with it all but it sounds like its going downstream into the gorge one way or another. Especially if the water goes up. Does anyone know any more about this?
Here's the article: Durango Herald Online
has anyone here seen this thing?

Pretty interesting. Explosives are ok in wilderness, but "creek boaters" back east may continue to be banned?

When I was up in Elk Creek there was a sign posted by the service for two differnt blasting spots. I think one was johnsoon creek and then some other creek above there. There were calling for hikers to have up to four hour waits while they blasted. One day we might have to blast some wood out da gorge.
Also, oct 6th and 7th montrose box trip. Give me a call. I am also working sat & sun. Juanny

Hey niko,
I'm game to go in there wood or not. If there is wood we could cut it out. If anyone wants to help shoot me a line.

Juanny's 8 year Program

Floaty22 is on the 8 year program, and no, he is not a Doctor. He takes like one class a semester, and those classes usually have high school students in them.

And that's not even to mention his love affair with the San Juan Sasquatch and his addiction to Latina porn...

I would think that paddlehead21 and ChrisL get enough wood already without having to go out looking for it. And poor young Cinnemonster looks up to these guys, I can only imagine what kinds of things these guys are teaching him. I mean is Cinnemonster really ready to do all that stuff, he just turned 16 for crying out loud, take it easy on the kid. And Floaty22 always heading up into the hills with him, god only knows what goes on out there. "Going to clean out some wood" is one one of their favorite pastimes it seems, is this like cleaning your pipes? Paddlehead21 has got to be paddling a innertube these days since all the kayak school boats are gone, that can't be safe, but probably takes some of the sting out of his a**. He probably flips a lot less too.
