Agreed, great new book. Leland and Andria definitely put a lot of work into it. I stayed up way too late last night reading through the book and I want to go boating now! This book makes you want to road trip now!
One thing I liked about the book was the info about weather, snowpack, rain, and how the various regions of the country get flows. Nice discussion. Also, never heard the term diurnal used in relation to the melt cycle, but the discussion was spot on. Great discussion for rain fed boaters coming to snowmelt regions. Cool stuff.
If you want to get one, go to the brushy mountain publishing site....
