last week on bailey......
decided to run bailey last sunday for the first time, was supposed to paddle with a coupla guys at the take out round 10 a.m - but after meeting up with the group and drivin up there we missed em ! srry ! we ran it ayway and holy smokes, what a blast !! unrelenting for sure, way bigger than i thought. all went well, at first, and then we had a swim/boat chase. got the boat, and away we go. so.... little bit down the river and bam ! same swimmer same boat. but this time the boat ends up cockpit facing upstream wedged below a huge log. a solid hour and a half of ropes ,pulling and cussing to no avail. thanks to the two mystery paddlers who eddied out and spent 40 minutes helping ! 10 seconds away from tellin dude sorry cant get it- hike out, i came up with the bright idea to try movin the tree. ten more minutes of cussing and success !! 1 crack 2 dents but he's floatin. yeah gorilla tape ! thanks to gannon and justinm for stayin optimistic-see you guys real soon.
