really? can't figure this brain dead class II move out yourself?

here you go.....(give me your hand so i can hold it now....do you have a favorite lullaby song i can turn on too while i walk you through it?)........okay, all set now... here we go....as you slowly come around the bend in the slow,barely moving current, if there is a pointy rock in the center of the right slot....uh,don't go that way?

there you go.

hope that helps.


oh dear, smells like someone needs their diapers changed.

If I were to interpret that with a little less bitterness than shitcreek, we can sum it up in a short phrase - Read 'n Run.

To answer your question - I know I've gone right as low as 400.

Thanks pirate - I've been wondering the same, I know the move is easy but I don't want to find out I went the "wrong" side the hard way and have to drag my boat off of rocks.

I went right on Sunday no problems in my 16' raft. At lower flows this year (~320) right looked good until you got up on it and then you could see a rock just under the water that could hang you up. At these flows right is good to go.

Awe come on, StiffNWet, by buzzard standards he's not being that bad. Plus, it was funny.

And the right channel is fine at this level.

Really? So maybe the guy has some kids on his boat and he's double checking. Or he's just learning and nervous. What's harm in that? I welcome questions like this and have asked them myself. I don't know if the guy has kids on his boat or not, but one thing for sure, you always have an asshole on yours.

Oh and good question, and generally go right unless the waters above 1500.
