Westwater 10/10-10/11/2015 @ 4180

What a great run this weekend with perfect weather and a lot of fun people along the way. My only notable episode was in Sock It To Me. I hit that thing so hard with a 200+ pound guy in the bow of my dory (which took us deep into the trough) that a 5 foot wall over water came over the bow and complete swamped the boat. It mostly self-bails, but we took on an epic amount of water. Anyway, that drop/hole definitely lived up to its name yesterday!

Lastly, note to self...don't forget to get gas in Fruita.

Hope you all had a good/safe weekend

It looked like a fun ride with a big hit, we were right behind you.

Nice boat!

Haw! That's great. Were you in the red cat? If so, that looked like a pretty sporty route taken as well!

Way to keep your cool. I also really liked Dan's dory who I think was with you.
