Shoshone Run + Carnage

My friend was riding along with these guys and video taped his run on Sunday. The boat that flipped was piolted by "Crazy Dave" of Gitsum, CO and is at least a 16 footer. The waves are pretty big these days, not washed out anymore, pretty fun.

Hilarious; I loved it when the boat landed right on the poor girl in tombstone, ouch... but seriously they couldnt clean it up a little quicker, it looks like guide training. I had soo much fun the other day just wrecking, pretty friendly holes and easy swims. Some of the best 8 second raft rides I'v had in a while.

The thing that scared me the most was the 50ft of anchor rope on the floor of the non-flipped boat...

It's hard to see in the vid, but it is running pretty fun at those levels (4500ish). The river left lateral in Man Eater is really big now. Beginners beware

I guess everyone held on to the flipped raft for way too long. That is a respectable swim from twin holes (it looked like for the flip) all the way to near Grizzly Creek before everyone was out of the water if I understand correctly. Note to self: bring own boat when rafting with Crazy Dave.

Doug, did you take the new guys out for their first Shosho training trips? I can imagine some nice 8 second sessions with them at the wheel, especially if you guys went for the extra fun in the 13 footers.

shoshone

I ran that on Sunday as well.

What is the name of the second to last section: had a big breaking wave just after the start and right in the middle of the river.

Probably Tombstone. In the video, that's where the two swimmers are getting kind of surfed.

that is a nice sized swim for them folks that stayed with the raft. Guy captaining the upright boat kept wanting to break (eddy pullout and trying to pick up folks on the bank)...he was pretty tired. Guy videoing was on it....

great video.

sometimes ya gotta take the rookie out

That rookie was on the sticks far too long. Experiential Ed is good except when people are in the water. Seconds count and explaining why that is in an eddy is not an option. Save the lessons for the takeout and get those swimmers!
