New for me:
Swan River/Wild Mile. Physically did well, but the headgames were awful!
Met some MBuzz peeps:
Met up with rbrain for MF Flathead and NF Flathead runs
Met up with glenn for a Gallatin run
Oldies but goodies:
4 weekends on the Lochsa, first kayak swim in 12 years
Took both girls from Wilderness Gateway to Fish Creek in a Topo Duo.
8yo tried to run it solo in her Fun 1.5 and swam.
Alberton Gorge at the biggest flow my 10yo had seen to date
Kayaked the Bitterroot with my 8yo. Played with eddy turns and looked for fish.
Yellowstone (Yankee Jim) with my kids at ~6kcfs. My 10yo swam and drank a bootie root beer off her flip-flop.
A lot of late season MF Flathead runs with my buddy and his 10yo and 8yo kids. His 10yo surfed Bonecrusher with me.
Next year I hope to add the Yaak and Poudre to my new runs list.

What was that like? Did you post a trip report thread?

Good to meet you for a Gallatin run. Let's stay in touch for more next year--or a Lochsa trip. We've always got raft space in our crew for Lindsy.
