Clear Creek of Ark wood report

Yo,
Someone always has to have the dubious honor of firing it first. I say dubious because the first folks are almost always jonsin and the flow too low as was the case thursday night.

There is a large log floating in the eddy river right at the bottom of the big boof (2nd gorge?). It looked mobile when we landed on it, but could flush to a bad spot.

The log(s) that you duck in the busy water at the end have sunk further down and will not be passable with good flows. Locals help?! The rest is good to go with the normal minor wood spots.

Joe

Weak sauce. If you were the first in there, by two days, where is your wood report? Give the rest of us a heads up. Here's to good flows and I'll see you down there Tango.

Weak sauce to you Joe since the entire state is running and your wasting your time on Clear Creek of the Ark at minimal water levels. You're not even an Ark local. Meanwhile Frontrange Fred is firing Barrel at 10k and Brad's hot-lapping Vallecito. Negative vertical for you! Minimum flow deduction penalty.

Ok, honesty here. I'm part of the Mank Crew. Earlier in the week we fired the upper A at 6+gs in town and 2200 in silverton. Piedra at 2700. Escalante higher than I've seen it, again. Gore at 2600. We needed a mank evening on the way back to the city. Truth be told, I'm terrified of Barrel at 10 and now Gore at 6?!! That f-ing vallecito just dropped in and they pulled the wood on the day we drove out of durango - curses on the world. At least we got some USB, eldo action. I fired eldo for the first time behind christian blind - does that earn me bonus points back?

Hate to say it but me and a friend ran it the Friday of paddlefest @ 60 cfs. You can ask GH your site admin for verification, since he was our shuttle bunny for the day. No need to post wood report since it would have changed with more flow, and nobody else would have gone in there at that level but me.

That equals bonus points in my book.

Did you pull the wood out of Harmon or was it gone? Luke, Ben and I are hitting it up this afternoon if you're in town.

Did you get that roll figured out yet? I think you have to be able to roll before you do that one.
