Yeah it was a more eventful day one than I have had. The flip on Gruman had a 70 year old on his first trip. Then he got rescued into the other boat and thrown out on the left run of Mother rock before we grabbed him. He was only doing the day run luckily because I don't think he would have wanted to go on.

On my Grand trip in 2015 the oldest guy on the trip was about 75 and he flipped once and swam one or two other times too... But he was locked in for the full 19 days.

He was definitely feeling his age by the end of the trip.

I was worried that at the higher flows the eddy wouldn't be there but no problem with that. We had to really pull to get out of it.

I bet he was feeling his age by the end. Good for him though, I hope I'm still going out at that age.

Raymo glad you enjoyed it. Its an awesome trip that I would recommend doing. Only problem is it doesn't always flow. This year has been great so far.
