Re: Raft repair question

Don't do the innertube patch. It's a different type of material and won't hold if you hit a rock. Its best to get the boat fixed properly, so you won't have to drop another 2 grand for a new boat.

Borrow a Skirt for Tomorrow?

My brother and I are thinking about making a trip to Rockport tomorrow, the only problem is that we're light a skirt. Anyone in Texarkana, Little Rock, or at Rockport tomorrow willing to lend a fellow paddler a hand? I'd much appreciate it, and my brother would more than me (he would avoid swimming).

Re: Is this Legal?

It's legal. The same reason that drug dogs can be used by walking them through a crowd. Though if you ever get into any kind of argument with any cop, tell him you need his badge number (they are required by law to give it to you for indentification, they just don't advertise the fact). You can lite...

Re: Question for Cossatot experts

Deer camp rapid is below the falls- a class III depending on the day. The camp is still there if I'm not mistaken... As for the Sheeps den- if you look on the signs put up within the last decade or so, you will see directions that point to the Falls Campground- I always assumed that's what they call...

Question About Ozark Creek Information Summary

I've had a lot of free time lately, and as usual, have been reading old river descriptions over again. I was reading the description of the Tot when I thought- how long has this page been up? I've been using it for years, but I have no idea who made it to begin with (THANK YOU whoever that was- you'...

Re: First Timers Trip down the Ocoee

Make sure that you hit the right-side boof at Tablesaw, miss the meat at Grumpy's, and don't get run over by a raft. Because y'all choose one of the busiest weekends of the whole summer to come up here.

Anyone ever paddle the Moose?

Has anyone on the board ever been lucky enough to hit up the Moose in NY state? I've been reading up on it, and it sounds like a sick nasty run (plus a super long drive).

Re: kayak problem...help, Opinions please.

Just throwing this out there- I learned to paddle in a crossfire. And I paddled that boat for years. My dad and I were running the Nanty in a Mirage and a Crossfire for a while (before it became cool again to paddle longboats). My suggestions- first, keep the crossfire. It's not the easiest boat to ...

I'll second that- she doesn't need an invitation to criticize Harlan's paddling.

Jack- can you send me the video of bald river falls? I'd love to have that

By the way... I hit the falls up again today in the playboat. Definitely doable

Adam, Jack- I need Video of the Butt Boof

Come on guys- I'm stuck by the Ocoee with nothing to do until the weekend. Upload the video- I need some laughs.
