Let's hear about YOUR middle fork carnage

I've heard rumors of several epics this year on Marsh Creek and down in the canyon proper.

Let's have some details. Share the wealth.

A few years ago we had a boat lose it's floor just a few miles above dagger. Thanks to some awesome patch work by Zbaird, we were able to get going the next day like it never happened.

It rained 6 1/2 out of the 8 days that trip, but it was still fantastic. It was the only time I've seen the bottom of my raft in the river. It flipped at Rubber at 6 1/2 feet. Surprisingly easy to right it. Very scary swim for the passenger, involving puking up water on the beach at the end. I don't think she ever forgave the captain. Hudson made the swim look easy.

The ferry from lost oak to sunflower should not be attempted on a new moon at high water. Water jumped from 4' to 6' during dinner, following a torrential rain, that made Marble creek flash big. Never seen it rain that hard anywhere.

I love the middle fork. Can't wait.
