Big South Wood

Lots of wood in there, more than I have seen in the past five years.

Evan can probably get on here and clarify anything I am missing cause I can't remember all of it.

The good news is that all the main named drops are clean except Bonk. (Can't remember if Tubular Balls does besides the pool) Bonk has wood on the right side of it. Huge tree running parallel to the river. Problem is you are trying to work left to right, but now as you come around the corner you have to work right to left to get away from the wood. It makes it a zig zag move if you want to get right.

Wood is still in the left of the boulder garden intro of Prime Time Gorge, but is more left than last year and is obvious.
There is now new wood all the way across prime time towards the end of it. It is after the first split drop which gets into the gorge section. At our flows you can duck it on the far far right. Eddy hop and go one at a time.

There is the wood that was across the left side of the river in the boogie after double trouble (Dave Frank maybe you can elaborate where it is) so just go right.

There is an almost portage on the flat water before the Rush. Half of us got out and Evan pulled a few through getting out of his boat to do so.

The Rush and that whole section is just a wood fest. Wood on the right like last year and in some other new spots. Sorry for the lack of specifics.

Melt Down was clean (minus same wood on the right at runout), but at our flow 70cfs out LD looked not fun to get the top boof going

Be super heads up in there.
