Wood in Kirschbaum's, Gore Canyon

Just a heads up.


General line for me has always been left of center through the main section coming around the corner. Yesterday I followed my partner over to the right channel where there is a large rootball/stump sticking up out of the water. There is a submerged branch that your boat can get sucked under pointing upstream about 5-10 feet. Not many people paddle over to that side and the rapid has plenty of pin/undercut/sieve potential anyway, but I just wanted to give a heads up to everyone that it has bad potential.

Happy 4th.

Josh, usually when I read your posts I feel dumber at the end, but this was a well thought out, intelligent reply. I really mean that, sorry if it sounded sarcastic.

Well, not that intelligent. He did forget an apostrophe.

Leif,
That is intelligent for a hippie. You need to lower the bar a little.

I have to agree with Leif here. The power of written communication shouldn't be underestimated. Just because he's a hippy doesn't exclude grammar when talking about intelligence

I had the pleasure of meeting Josh at Gore last weekend. He was drinking beer out of a green bottle. This act alone disqualifies him from being a hippie. If I hadn’t seen his line through tunnel I might have also questioned his boating ability.

I am a linguistic visionary creating new forms of contractions using elision. I am against the apostrophe since it was created by the French.

Scott is the Hippie although I was only drinking beer from a green bottle because I stole it from my neighbors garage.
