Looks like the schmorkplace doesn't like flickr, either. Pic's will have to wait till I get home.

I've got some pictures of old boaters in old boats, do they count?

Got my guesses as to who this is, but I am just not sure!! Anybody? Think this was in 1980 on the Piney at the Mother.


Long time ago, I lived out of state. Came back on a business trip and while driving from the Fort to Texarkana, I took a side route down some forest service roads based on a map that I got out of an old Arkansas Times article. A story about paddling in Arkansas with rivers and pics! This is what the Tot looked like on my first glimpse!!! And no, I did not have a boat with me as I was on business!

Image

Then, I on my very first trip on the Tot in 1984 before I moved off to Texas for six years, I shot some pics of some Dallas area boaters. Gives you an idea of what the boat of choice was. Got some more of the races at Big P before I left for Texas. I'll try to find them.

I did not know this shot existed. The shot of the yaker in the white kayak on the Piney was me when I lived on the dark side of the planet. Eat your heart out Dave Robertson!

Man, just looking at those pictures of 90 degree offset paddles makes my right wrist hurt.

(The 30 additional years of wear-and-tear has nothing to do with it...)

If one of you guys ever want to go retro and do some old school reenacting, I’ve got two Iliad flat-blade, 90-degree paddles in my basement that were given to me. I’m only an occasional rec kayaker, never could figure out how to use them. They're huge! I always wondered what they looked like in action. :crazy: Great stories and Thread.

All these old pics and stories have inspired me to make a New Year's Resolution........ Paddle Richland Creek in a Tandem Canoe. Retro Paddling!!! My knees have I think one more class IV trip in them. Who's in.......... Marcell Jones......want to come out and play!!! Danger Boy?? Paul Newton? Any of you real old school boys want to leave the rubber at home next time and take a walk down memory lane?? Let's go!

One slight problem........ I don't have a tandem canoe anymore. Marcell I'm counting on you to be my partner!!
Skoboten!

Gordo, Randy Dodson and I bought a Dagger Caption last year. One of our goals as I told him was to paddle Richland in it together! Why? Because my guides on the first trip down that storied creek was Walter and Gayle Felton in their tandem!!!

Get your game on!!!!!

I too am enjoying this thread and I've got a
question. I don't know how far "back in the
day" it was, but I have this picture of some-
one going off rattlesnake falls in a kayak.
I've heard it was Fish, is this correct and can
anybody tell me was it a clean landing?
If it was Fish has anyone else ever ran it?
Thanks everyone for the pictures, I love em'!!

Tommy
