What's with the "I can't tell you where this is, trip write up". Are they guarding the covetted 1st 2nd descent. Afraid of a rogue gang of kayakers taking over control of their turf? Is this Henson creek by lake city?

Yeah, I know it's lame -- sorry. it's just not totally my call on letting the cat out of the bag til it's all been done (i.e., the tributary waterfalls & the one on the main run & another possible run right in the same area). I didn't "find" the run, I just did the trip report.

Honestly, I could give a shit if people know where it's at because it's pretty remote & wouldn't get a ton of action anyway ... but, my word's my word. It'll come out this spring/summer, I'm sure.

What's up Todd, I'm just joking with ya, I'll find out anyway though. If this is the infamous treasure falls section on Henson Creek, it was definitly first d-'d long ago by one Ben Stokesburry along with most creeks with enough water to float a boat around those parts. If you guys truely found something new though damn nice work. Whatever it is it sure looks good.

Yoooooo .... ok, it's late i'm drunkass .. but i'm not gonna spill the bong .. i mean beans ...

it's definitely definitely not henson creek or even near that zone. it for absulutely sure IS new & very worthy. that's what is so cool about it .. the fact that it is a totallly long *& legitimate run with tons of good drops & one bigass waterfall & it had nevr been explored. props to rick for sussing it out!

everyone here that likes to run class V creeks will know its whereabouts in due time & will get to enjoy it. i'll efven personally show some peeps down it once or twice this year.

except ben. cuz that little chauncey only likes to park 'n play. or so i've been told. i hear he's been nailing a wicked pan-donkeyzilla at the Commerce City playpark ,,, J/K benny .. we'll get out & run some shit together this summer if you don't mind driving & hiking a little.

so .... did any other paddleboaters go and see INTERPOL at the filmore tonight??? so good ...

Uh, you guys need to just stop right here. M-Creek is for locals only. DO NOT come down here to paddle our creek. You are NOT welcome. This is OUR river - WE own it. If you are not from our town, not part of our posse, or do not regularly paddle with us, then do not ask about M-Creek. Just because a couple adventurous and resourceful guys "discover" our long-time local run doesn't mean they or anyone else are welcome. STAY OFF M-CREEK!

Wow Caspian you sound like a real live gangsta? I was going to run M-creek but now that I've read your poetic post I've completely changed my mind. I'm scared of your posse. You sound like an ass, take that attitude back to Texas partner. Maybe you could put a couple fences up in the river to keep people out. Or a sign "This creek is mine, my mommy said so! Stay Out" or "Beware of Posse"

Take a deep breath

looks like a great run. cool--way to go boys. lame to keep the drainage a secret though. after all-- it's not like we are surfers with crowd issues who want to have a spot that is low-key, that could be understandable. this is lame

Saracasm, yes. I wouldn't worry about location. A few years ago, Kyle and some other guys (Todd I think too?) took the same approach to Lucky 7 - he wouldn't post the location but said he would take anyone there personally. I don't recall anyone complaining that they couldn't surf it because the location was posted online.

Unless there is an access issue, it's probably not as big a deal here, if only because there are way more people wanting to surf a wave than to run hair, but it really doesn't matter practically to a soft class V hack like me...

Relax Steven.

You think I'm gonna tell everyone where our as yet unrun waterfalls are??? Think about it. This isn't about keeping a secret just for the fun of it ..

Yeah, it's about keeping it a secret so they can tell everyone they were the first to run those waterfalls...IMO who cares?

The people who do the hard work of opening up new runs DO care about that shit, "Dude".

You've obviously never spent a minute of your life scouring topos, hiking relentlessly in the off-season, hauling wood, sacrificing in-season weekends for exploratory missions, & taking the first tentative strokes into something that's never been run.

You're free to reduce our logic to "they just wanna tell everyone they were first" ... but once you've invested your own time into opening up a great new run, you'll have a whole different perspective.

In the end, the whole community is the better for the work that goes into these things.

You could just appreciate the trip report for what it is (a teaser of something that will be widely known by the end of summer) ..

Oh knew that would get a rise out of ya...sorry, I was just bored. BTW I have spent time cleaning out wood in the off season and going to places on a hunch when other perfectly good stuff was running. So I can relate. Again, just heating it up a bit!

...or you could start scouring the topos and get it done yerself. The maps and the water are free to those that seek them. Great TR, and looking forward to checking it out.

I remember seeing the intro to LVM #13 and wondering why there were no posts. Can you at least give us the goods in spring/early summer so that we have time to enjoy this gem.
Thanks, the Twister looks sweeet!

Steve.

This trash talking sounds like some surfers I knew back in the day, Hope its all in fun and isn't leading to broken windows and slashed tires. Since I'm not a "LOCAL" anywhere yet...

I am just starting WW and was thinking that everyone was in it for the fun!!!

rasdoggy - I was playing off a few other incidents that happened on MB (and other places) in the past.

Believe it, we're all here for the fun and most of us for the community just as much. Come on in, the water's fine.
