New Years Day Shoshone run anyone???

I have never done New Years Day Shoshone run, but have heard it is a tradition of sorts. I'd be in for this year.
Who else is planning a Jan. 1, 2009 Shoshone run?

Yeshhh

I'd like to make it down this year. If you all are lucky I may bring a shuttle bunny for the rigorous 1.5 mile shuttle. Does anybody have some hook ups at a local ski area you may be able to share with the lady and I. I'd like to make the 4 hour drive from the Fort worth it. PM me.

See ya guys/gals in a bit!

I'd like to join in on this...it'll be a 3.5-4 hour drive for me as well. A place to crash would be appreciated, otherwise, I might get lodging in Glenwood. (Hopefully at a some-what cheap price)

Should we plan to meet at the T.O. at noon. I'll be driving over from the front range as well. It would be good to put together a crew to chip the ice off each others heads so we can stay upright.

To the ones that have done this before. What did you wear? Was it enough? If not what are you going to change? How about hand wear? any thoughts. I was paddling the other day and the hands were getting pretty numb. I am not sure what is best for arctic boating handware?

Noon at the take out will work great it is always a good way to start the the year. Last year we stood around in the bathroom area melting a good half an inch off. It was COLD! The water would splash on you and freeze as it hit you body. Gannon had is girl with for her first run on that section hitting 3 rolls that day. She was amazing! I had on multiple layers (hydoskin, dry top, under armor, wet suit and some poly prop.)

The coldest was by far the ears and hands. Last year had on a thin pair of hydroskin gloves and it was not good. I would say pick up some toaster mits. They don't cost that much and they are tostie! Bring layers, beers, shots and food for afterwards telling stories. See ya on the 1st!
