I saw the Vail Mountain Rescue guys with all their swiftwater rescue gear, ambulances and firetrucks with lights on coming to the area on the Eagle near the Reserve. (This is near Edwards on Hwy 6 near the section locals call the Edwards Mile). Does anyone have anymore information about what happened?

I just got off that section about 1/2 an hour ago and didn't see anything.

Lots of hole-hopping since the water's down, but nothing extraordinary.

Do you have any specifics?

That's when we were on but I didn't see anything. Maybe they were fishing a cat out of a tree. :roll: I actually swam a stupid section today, so maybe the rescue work should have been for me.

Pappas - I've never been on the Animas so I'd be stoked, but I'm in Aspen w/ work. Don't swim - it's for choads. :?

Not much information to add other than to confirm that Vail S&R was called on a river incident in the Edwards Mile section. I was paddling Gore Cr. with a S&R member and when we took out @ 1pm his beeper indicated that S&R was called in around noon.

Cool, I was just curious/worried after I saw them out there. Was hoping that someone I know didn't get hurt or something. It could have been a fisherman or something. I think the spot was a litte before the river picks up.

I think the Vail Daily would have been all over it if something had happened. Instead, they only have articles about petting zoos and midget wrestling.

"White Lightning" - what's your name?

No accident on Eagle River

Hey all -

I am new to the forum but also a member of Vail Mountain Rescue. Nothing happened on Tuesday as some one abandoned a Wal-Mart Raft just past the Spur Rd. Bridge, river right I think. You did not read about anything cause nothing happened -

Cool, thanks for the info. That stuff makes us nervous to see, so we tend to ask questions! I just learned that P-Bizzle is my boy from the good 'ol days. I took him on his first kayak run that wasn't with a class, and now he has far surpassed my shakyass class III- skills.

Accident on Eagle River?

No problem - Glad to help - It is always scary to see an upside down raft or kayak and have no clue what happened. I am a Class III boater as well, and some days my skills are shaky at best. We went down the Edwards Mile yesterday and it was still running well - Enjoy!

Alright Dave! Did not know you were White Lightning! Paddled Edwards to Wolcott yesterday and it was a blast - Did you get out?
