Evan, that's one of the best trip reports I've read lately - great job. However, after reading it I thought, I really need to hear the Leif side of the story now to finish the tale. Sure enough I look on here and he delivered. Good stuff.

Sounds like a trip you'd better make in your 20's. Wish I was paddling in my 20's... Entertaining stuff, for sure--great pics. I think I need to learn the technique of the 5 guys who packed their overnight crap while watching the other two guys pack nothing. Guess you get to make your own good and bad choices in all things, including boating. I suppose if the only upshot to a bad choice is a night of cold and misery, no worries... Of course, when you're on a trip with others, one person's bad choice can also become your own, especially in boating, no?

Ya Christian, git sum! You too Tom! I hope it holds for you/you can get to the put-in. I still want Hellsgate bad. And Marc, I'm thirty, but I was the oldest dude on the trip. It's weird, usually these days I'm the "silver back" as E-Ross likes to say.
