Been wanting to get on this run for two years now and decided it was close, time wise. We were hearing reports to high and to low, and we were guideless and on late start. I gave Chase and Nathan and call, the boys drove up from Colorado and my ass drove through yellowstone. I was having camera issues and missed the ultra classic california section from the old bridge structure and Chase flat out forgot the his. sometime a good thing should be worth the effort to enjoy again.

Yo Perry,
Do you think NFLW will still be in this weekend? Did you guys run out of time for the waterfalls?

notice the bringing a guide part stafford. to bad nobody would step up..part of the run or not we scored big and flow was great in the upper. it was worth every step for cali section from the old bridge structure. regardless of the double drops we ran.

danimal i think it could be? watch how fast the mf popo agie drops should be fairly similar.

just f'in wit ya casper. whatever the flow it takes balls to step to the three falls gorge and I'm yet to be there when it's really juicin'. I was actually talkin with somebody the other day saying I'd probably rather have the low optimal flows we had on the first d over something too juicy cause I'd want to run the waterfalls and it'd be scarier with juice. A guide would have helped cause I'm pretty sure they go with ample flows but they need to be stomped. Stoked you got on it. Did you get the falls run on popo too?

we ran the 20ish footer like 4 times, chase like big tall objects up his butt cause he wouldnt stop sliding off it the old fashion way. ran falls section which was 4 stars for sure. good way to round out the weekend think we hiked 7 - 7.5 miles total this weekend.. wouldnt call it a mis adventure though. just fun.
boofington was big dawg. ahhh man i was white out till the stroke at the entrance little further left than wanted to be.

if you arent heading in this year count me in on your trip next year!
