Umm, no hangin out in any holes for me. It was nice and high, great and padded out....too high for the 3rd gorge for me. Dont know if anyone went down there yesterday.... Couple guys I was leading went into the pothole on waterslide, which was unfortunate since they would've loved the rest of the run if not for the pile up at the bottom of the drop resulting in swims, downstream gear and hikes out. Sorry for that boys. And thanks Milo, for bringing that up.

Anyway Milo, it would have been great to see you there. Oh WAIT, I forgot you dont run anything 'hard; (aka above class 4-) anymore. Yeah, I know you spew lotsa talk on the buzz about how you run the Black all the time, but word from your partners is that you portage all the hard drops.

If you would like to go run something sometime, I'd be happy to paddle backwards and with one hand paddle so we could be on a similar ability level .

Glad to hear your monkeys loved shoshone.
