At least two of us will be heading down Sat/Sun. On the trip with steve last year we hiked ~5 miles to the springs and overnighted it....not worth it. Only class III-IV until you hit the bridge and major portaging around huge avalanche log piles. The 20' is a no go. The bridge is ~ 2 miles and the best stuff is below that. PM me if you want to hook up but you really dont need a guide. We were fine with Jared's beta last year but if you have gotten beta from Jared before you know that aint saying much, hehe.
JJ Thanks for the extra three miles bro! I still owe you....
my first time down vallecito it was just me and jj , with approaching dusk all he said to me was "stay 15 feet off my stern, everything's good to go" as he proceeded to peel out and haul ass down. sick fun
wish i was there to hit the WF up, never got there.
looks like it will be a green river summer, trying to do some jedi training.
It's good to hear from you bro! I was paddling with Little Jared the other day, and it sounds like you guys had some good times. Wish you were still in Forest Lakes. Baker's has been sweet so far this year.
what's up bro? hows the fam's? all's well here, fam's doing good. really wish i could come back out this summer and run some shit, been training all winter, but it dosn't look like it's gonna happen; bummer. it is nice to be around some other c-1er's runnin' the shit, though.
yeah, me and j-rad had a pretty good time out here last fall. been getting out with billy, arron and drew a good bit, didn't even hardly have to find a new crew,at one point in time there was 5 of us durango boys out here this winter. if you or any other of my bro's want to come out to n.c. ya'll got a place to stay for as long as you need, 30-45min's to most of the good shit, 4hrs to the gaulley. get my# from j-rad leon if needed.
steve, gorilla is sick fun. only need one blade for it , same with go left(if your a righty,which i am) and left line at sunshine; definitely taken some hard crashes, but its been fun. gotta pay some dues every once in a while to get more fun tickets. having other c-1ers out here runnin the same stuff makes it seem more sane for shure.
