Yeah, we missed you in there. Sorry you got banged up. Heal well, and come back and paddle with me next year.
But yeah, you're glad you weren't there yesterday. While I managed to swim Gore Rapid wihtout injury (though my friend said it was the ugliest swim he's ever seen), my boat got destroyed in Scissors.
We had to hike back up to the flat water, then duct-tape the boat, and paddle UPSTREAM to the put-in. Man did it suck.
Mike -- STUFF IT!
I ran that rapid clean the first three times I was in there. Blew it yesterday. So what? I'll style it next time. As for last week, that was a different rapid .... Okay, so maybe I suck, but I still really like Gore and I'll be back.
