Come on boys I would slow down just a bit here.
I was up there last night, eddied out just above the drop, and saw no new signs or fence in the river.... I even think that I talked with the new landowners and they seemed like reasonable folks.. I doubt that he built that house to fire off lawsuits at boaters but who knows.
From reading this thread and paddlin up there the past few weeks I would say that yes there is a new house and that is about it...
Zip what did you run into? I was just wondering what happened or if you were able to talk with the land owner?? Or has anyone been able to talk with anyone other than a random salty construction worker... Has anyone had a problem with the landowner on a rescue here?? There are none I know of.....
Also you can walk the road and the bridge so you can take out above the bridge and walk the road to scout... You can see all you need to see. Or scout on the way up.
River right is not a good option trust me... I parked on the side of the road one night a few years back when the bridge was out... Car ended up gettin towed and I had a formal conversation with the landowner and sheriff..
Now I agree with Justin and if it is a rescue well you gotta do what you gotta do..
And come on casper and yeti the sky is not fallin.. I would bet the only change at #5 will be you have to scout from the road.
