Bogan is not a step-up from slaughterhouse. However, there is always wood in there, but changes every time I run it (usually just once per year). You really need to be heads-up at all times and ready to catch an eddy at any moment (you have been scanning for eddies at the same time as looking for wood, right?). Lower flows through Bogan are fun and beautiful, but pretty easy. Higher flows get pushy and busy.
"A witty saying proves nothing."
