    Default North Fork of the Chena and a Lesson :-)

    Spent the better part of 6 hours floating just above 50 mile CHSR down to Mile 42 CHSR only two issues is the water is dropping and a nasty log jam about 45 mile. Nothing like humping gear 500 yards through Skeeter invested woods at 80 degrees. OH the good times. At least it was not the wood river when it cut a new channel a couple of years back.

    If you go expect Sweepers, strainers and Jams! Still all and all as always and excellent float however with no additional water in the system I would think it is not something one would wish to accomplish for a while.

    Dang I just figured out I am getting old! Sucks to be me!

    LOL enough to give me the shakes! Hey was not my choice Wife wanted to test the Pike IK's on skinny water, something local and a little more work. The Boats did Great in fact a reasonable option for the selected adventure however as I stated to her on the way up "darling" I think you might be asking for more than you want to accomplish today. :-) Was cool to teach her how to make a shoulder sling with lift in order to drag the IK's through the woods without getting stuck or hitting trees so it was a good lesson for her.

    Funny thing is I don't believe she will be asking to run that section of the river again!

    Next up to VC lanidng strip with her and her IK. Maybe just maybe I can prep her for a Kavic Trip next year.

    Float on Friends Float on.
