Re: Hailstone Society proposed

Let's take the raft down Osage Cr. Even closer to home.

Just call me when it's raining hard enough to run the creek! :)

It ain't a beer belly. It's tornado-proofing.

Re: Trip Report - March 16th, EFLB, 5 paddlers, 4 boats

Great trip report. Really takes me back. EFLB at high water may well be the wildest ride in Arkansas. And I'm counting ALL the big steep creeks in that. EFLB doesn't "wash out" at high water like some runs (I'm looking at you upper Richland). A flood run in there is the full class 4-5 experience. Se...

Technically, I think Amarillo is still slightly north of hell.

Good luck,

You might want to look at water trails in MN: http://dnr.state.mn.us/watertrails/location_map.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; The Vermillion, Big Fork, Cloquet, and St. Louis have all been recommended to me several times.

Re: Last Royalex Boat; What Would It Be and Why?

One of the best big water tandem canoe rapid runs I have ever witnessed was setting in my kayak in the eddy right at Tappan Falls and watching Larry and Gayle side surf that monster wave hole on a blue sky day on the Middle Fork Salmon River in that canoe Larry mentions. Surfing the hole in Tappan....

Re: Last Royalex Boat; What Would It Be and Why?

I bought an Old Town Appalachian a while back, and I've been happy with it. I think it's nearly the perfect balance between a family/gear-hauler for tripping and handling reasonably well in class 2-3 water. Have a central saddle + seats in it, and at 16' it's a very versatile boat for tandem or some...

Man that stinks. Hope you get it back soon. Surely there is a special eddy in hell for those who steal kayaks.

Re: Fishers Ford 2/22

I changed the lower level for the Ford on the OWP to 2.1 to try to reflect what I'm hearing is a good threshold. If anyone has feedback on optimal/high level thresholds when the levels rise this spring, IM or email me to let me know. Also, the description on the board is way out of date, so new info...

Re: OWP levels for caddo

So what is the consensus for the low/optimal/high cutoff levels for the Caddo? Different from what's on the OWP now? I've managed to get FTP access back and can make the change anytime.

Re: Most popular whitewater in Arkansas

The short answer to what are the most popular technical runs in the state is: whichever ones have enough water... The longer answer depends on what you consider technical and popular. If class 2 is technical, then the most popular runs in terms of number of people on them each year would be things l...

Re: Tips on Spring Break on the Rio Grande?

Man, thanks for all the info. Was thinking of going and taking my kid, but I don't think mom is going to like the water quality issues. In fact, I'm a bit concerned myself... Trying to keep an 11 year old out of the water seems like setting myself up for failure. Maybe I'll head to Chattooga for a t...
