Re: Upper Nanty Release Sept 28 and 29 + GAF

Had a great trip out at the Upper Nanty release this year. Here's a pic from Big Kahuna on the Cascades. Had a lot of great class 3 boating too on the Tellico, Upper Nanty, and Ocoee. Can't wait for next year: http://i1282.photobucket.com/albums/a538/arcreekfish/big_kahuna_2013_zpsf680f202.jpg Coupl...

Re: Upper Nanty Release Sept 28 and 29 + GAF

Getting ready to head out this afternoon, and thanks to some well-timed rain looks like we're going to get a good run in on Friday too. Lots of options right now. Cascades may have a bit extra for us too - some natural flow from Whiteoak should pad it out a bit more. Boat loaded and will be east-bou...

Re: Breaking News re: ARG & Team Stupid

Well, I certainly wouldn't want to be a member of any organization that would accept the likes of me. Therefore, at this time, I absolutely accept my nomination to the ARG!

Thanks,

Re: Upper Nanty Release Sept 28 and 29 + GAF

Hey Adamm, my messages here on the board ain't working right now. Shoot me an email at fish@ozarkpages.com if you want to try to hook up out there. Looks like there's a few Arkies and a few KC area paddlers heading out - will be a good time on the creek!

Re: Paddling Mishaps caught on tape!

I heard about this adventure, but much better to watch the drama unfold. True Stupid form, no question. The Stone was hungry that day my friends! Great level in the gorge - looks like the water was coming down from "epic" to merely "full-on-burly" levels. The really good part about that is that if y...

Upper Nanty Release Sept 28 and 29 + GAF

Me and some fellow Stupids are planning on heading out for the upper Nanty release weekend and NOC's Guest Appreciation Festival (read as "Party by the River!"). Upper Nanty has class 4-5 and class 3+ sections - and of course the class 2+ lower Nanty will be running too. Something for everyone. Anyo...

Re: Anyone here paddled the Potomac near DC?

Great Falls of the Potomac is a very cool series of class 5 drops. Many different lines, some not so good to try. VA side is a bit easier, center lines are more interesting. If you haven't been before, I would definitely ask/follow the locals who know the lines. A** kickings are not much fun in the ...

Heads UP for Bobtail Cr. - Log In Coliseum

Coliseum Rapid on Bobtail Cr. has a tree in the main boof line. Maybe this is old news, but I wanted to give everyone a heads up on it. The only way to run the drop was to head far right, hug the bank past the rocks, and then make the right-hand slide drop. Any other move would have put us into the ...

Re: June Weekend on Ozark Creeks

Great report on the weekend Mr. Jones! I drove down from KC with Andy at 5 AM Saturday morning - gotta get up early in Kansas to get the worm. We met up with lots of great paddlers along the way and were rewarded with a flush run down Bobtail and Falling Water on Saturday. Had no big carnage, but so...

Re: Awesome Russian rafting documentary

I can't get it to load (at work), but that's probably the old Nat Geo documentary from the 90s. I remember watching that when I was a wee newbie paddler - hard core stuff when you get to the river and then construct your boat and paddles!

I wanna go!

That could be an ACC fundraiser. I'll sing and people will put money in my jar if I'll shut up.
