    Default Chickaloon River Video

    Mark suggested to my buddy Owen and I to run the Chickaloon earlier this year.... It was amazing, blistring hot, high water and panoramic views. Check out the video I put together.

    Default Nice clip

    Nice Video JR, seems like Hotel has changed alittle since the flood. What a smokin run for a class II-III (lol) and steep for a river. Hey, tell Owen the river left side of the Ledge is much more friendly

    He was in need of a good recycle bath... On the other hand I have yet to swim this year which mean we need to run something a little more challenging like Upper Kings or Montana creek!

    Default Hey JR; Bird Cr

    John and I have been wanting to do Bird Creek forever. When Ship is about 4.7-4.8ft we will come in and see you and run the creek. If we survive the middle section, intact, we will watch you do the 25 footer with the cave I had my swim this year, under a log, I'm good. (lol)

    Montana is 635 right now. If it quits raining it will probably be good this weekend.

    Moose is 348 right now. If it keeps raining it might make 400. Anyone game tonight?

    We are looking at running willow in the morning. Its at 1530 right now so red gate will be just right!
    If you are interested give me a yell.

    The big sue is just under 50,000 if anyone wants to have a real good swim.

    Unfortunately I have returned to work. I can run anything in the evenings or weekends though.

    Redgate is a fun run at 1530. Spice it up, walk up and run five fingers!

    Montana is too high now, but I want to catch it when it comes down. Moose is perfect.

    Default Moose rally

    We need to get 10-15 boats going down Moose at current levels, what a site. Small rafts too. More rain coming then clear skies on weekend.

    Walk up and run five finger .... We started at guardrail!
    It will make an epic video for sure! I had one swim in a hole that Owen said no packraft could make it through ... I hate when I cant prove him wrong!
    I also pulled off a combat roll in one less lawyer!

    Most dope!!!
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    Default Upper upper

    We went and ran the upper upper at 2000cfs, it was rowdy and pretty darn fun in several sections. Good stuff if the rest of the creek is to high.
