Lets hear about your swim(s), in 2008 (so far)

Fess up, I'll go first. Swam at the slot on the Embudo while half of Colorado's Frontrangers watched. Dana and crew had also just rafted the slot clean. Very embarrassing moment for me. We all have them. Fess up! Atom...

I've heard the saying many times that we are all inbetween swims. Thanks for all the great images of the New Mexico goodness over the years. What's goin on down there anyway? Embudo, Pueblo?

thanks

I think many people owe booty beers thanks to the homestake race, but I won't mention any names...

I was at tha Saratoga Inn tonight and swam naked with a few chicks. My raft was on my trailer but was within seeing distance so does that count.

alright joe I'll name names, I swam twice in my practice runs for the race, but I did my booty beers before the race and had clean lines during the race. What about you on NSV, details?

I swam on my second lap of the SF of the Clearwater (golden canyon) at around 6 grand. Was very brutal and my boys got my ass just in time as I was done. Rough day

Alrighty Atom... "Forgive me father for I have swimmed!"

I swam on SSV with Scott Young... Who by the way may have broken ribs last night on that run. Let's hope not and that he's OK. Can't really call any exit of a boat on SSV a swim at the levels we were in there that day... more like a walk through the rocks.
I also swam in Rigor which was quite a surprise. I've run that bastard 15 times and never had a hitch... Not that time. Got the stood up vert in that first upper hole on the ramp and had a nice upside down ride down to and in the hole at the bottom.... Good times!

Gary, where the heck is golden canyon? 6K? Geez

I swam SSV 2 times in one day this week. Sometimes I get bored just using my boat because that is so easy. I like swimming because it adds to the challenge.
