Rafting class V/V+ Chelan Gorge

American Whitewater has been very gracious in working with the Chelan P.U.D. to get a couple of days release off the lake to do a flow monitering study and of the gorge. Only hardshells were previously allowed on the study but this year they were gracious enough to allow inflatables. Was super beautiful and fun. Cannot thank American Whitewater and the Chelan P.U.D. enough for this opportunity.

Check out the craftiness at 2:38 of the rafter on the left finding whatever he can to hold onto to stay in the raft!

Nah, 2:37 is proof positive that rafters are all a bunch of nut jugglers.

Dan,

I'm glad you have joined the Buzz! We need more help around here giving cheeky answers to "What size raft should I buy for my three kids and fat wife?" and "What do you do when a bear tears apart your groover?"...

There are some best of the buzz threads that will get you all caught up on what this forum is capable of and introduce you the the most capable trolls.

Keith

Wow, a good grab is worth a kiss! Unfortunately this may reduce the pool of interested partners...... Very nice run, thanks for sharing.
