WEst water

Well, it finally happened. After years of boating WW, I finally had to go into the room and tip a Cat. back over. I've been in there before just for fun, but this wasn't much fun. The water was only 4,900, but I guess that was enough. It was a big Cat. too. It took us a couple of hours. Oh, well, alls well that ends well. Great weather, scenry, water, friends = great trips.

I'm headed there this weekend

I'm headed there this weekend. I'm going to be in a kayak and I was toying with the idea of doing something braver (or more stupid?) than running the sneak at Skull.

In case I get a little too close, has anyone been in that hole at this level? Will it flush or hold an upsidedown kayaker?

Personally, I would rather run the hole at skull over and over again than remember the asskicking i got paddling back into sock-it-to-me this weekend.
Don't miss little D. It is bouncy, but if you commit and go with it this will be the best play of the trip. hope the weather is good and if the ranger tries to take your keg, tap it real quick and pour him a cup! later

Skull doesn't get too clogged up, it's a flusher....maybe a double flush....or maybe just a courtesy flush.....I cant be held responsible though

Looks like the level is on the way down. We ran at 4,700

the first day and the hole was more a flat wave. At 4,900 though it looked kickin. It wouldn't hold anyone, but there were big chunks of water kickin out of the bottom of it. Might knock the wind out of ya! I always want to run it, but I usually take the sneak so I can pick up anyone at the bottom who makes a wrong choice. Besides I'm pretty chicken!! Have fun. It was one of the best trips I've had in a long time. Good weather, great scenry, good friends, and the water wasn't bad. I agree Sock is worse than Skull.

this last weekend was epic. Good people, great weather and decent water. Don't remember to much of the rapids due to my old pals Bud and Jack. ( I won't ever remember SITM untill it works me) Glad to know the rangers didn't keep the lil'Keg. Hate to say It's probably time for this cowboy to roll up the rubber... Now lets hear it for gas powered winter toys ######>
