SVV Wood report...

I think Scotty and I were the first ones in there, and although the bulk of it is clean of wood, there are a few bad placements of wood.

The one most notable, and was rather close call, was at the very bottom of Bed Springs. After the hard right slot, where you spin around to make it through the last little drop, there is a 4 inch diameter branch sticking out about 4 inches above the water at 120. Depending on what that is connected too, that could be very serious as your nose is likely to sub it. We didn't have the daylight or people to get to it effectively.

Beyond that, the next few parties should be ready to scout everything on the way up. Some of the wood wasn't exactly in play, but the first 200cfs day is going to change that right away.

Be safe out there.
