New River Dries.....that was a fun run. I ran it, oh, 7 years ago. I think the dam broke and it ran for a short while....with that section Chinese Arithmatic...am i thinking of the right run or is that Dries of the Pigeon? Outside of Ashville and there was another cool creek right near the takeout....Big Creek....great little creeky run!
Actually, I think the Wave-o-saurus on the Connecticut River as it runs through Massachusettes is the biggest wave on the east coast. When everything melts in VT and NH it runs at about 90K for a day or two each spring.
I am currently sitting here in my office:
In my fourth-floor office with the windows......
Staring out at rolling hills and gathered dark thunderheads and sheets of torrential rain..... and being ENTIRELY BITTER my friends called last night with not one but THREE-- 3!!!!-- runs planned on all this flood stage water today....
I have not one but TWO web-based classes to facilitate or host already on my calendar. I have a boss who would not understand if I went to her and explained "but but but but".... and yes, in case you were wondering, this *is* me whining!
I want to go play! What fun is being an adult if you can't go play when you want to? I mean, it's not like we get a hurricane here just any old day of the week, you know!
The storm somehow fit between the Cumberland Plateau of Tennessee on the east and the good runs in Arkansas on the west with moving a gauge. Many, many boats in the east, which are now loaded, will remain dry or return to the Ocoee/Nantahala/Chattooga for the umptheenth time.
I am bavk to looking at low water runs in the Numbers and the Gorge.
