Hey, bucklmd --
I feel like I left the promised land, too (Idaho)
No, seriously, good paddling there (and potatoes).
But I'll be making trips from the Springs AT LEAST once a week, to the Ark and anywhere else.
And ASAP, too - as soon as there's something class 4 or under, free of ice, I'm looking to go.
Shoot me a message if you're going.
What's up, gh? Sho-sho in a couple weeks? Maybe as a warmup for the gorge shortly after?
