It's December 1st and I'm thinking about our annual New Years Day run on Shoshone. Who is going to make it this year? It' got to be warmer than last year, right. My truck said 7 degrees at the put in. What a great time I had with all you other kooks!!!!

Lets plan to meet at 12 noon at the Grizzly Creek take out and get going ASAP.

Here are some pictures from 2009 Shoshone New Years Day 2009

Well this will be my 2nd year to miss since I'm in Arkansas. I didn't miss a new years day paddle though! It rained and was 70 deg on the good ole Cossatot!

I'm aiming to be there Peter, though likely coming from the west this time. And I'd love to not have ice forming on me 10 minutes after getting in the water!

Sounds good everyone! I am looking forward to it.

I do hope to paddle a few times between now and then. Kinda cold today at 3 degrees but I did see they are releasing on Bailey & Foxton right now.

Could this be done in a Mini-Max? Enough water for it?
Sure, I think that would go. Although every year someone talks about bringing a raft and I have yet to see one on NYD. Maybe you can change that for me. But so far it's just kayakers with the frozen brown claw...

Agreed, thank goodness for drysuits! I got '09 and '10, but last year was too cold!

I'm 50/50 for '12...

The ramp has been MIA the last 2 years - this must change.

I think we should build a kicker on the boat ramp and another launching into the river, The Shoshone Terrain Park. :)

I think a kicker would be great! Got a Dutch exchange student (who happens to be on the Dutch Natl. Wildwater Team), we're bringing him and maybe my wife in her duckie if I can find a drysuit for her.
