Great forum, great info. Thanks.
A friend and I are floating the Talkeetna Canyon on 7/9. We are actually being dropped at Murder Lake on 7/7. I've heard all the big talk re: this float and usually get the most animated responses from people that have never run it. I would love to get some first hand knowledge from the people on this board, that have run it. Has anyone floated it this summer? Last summer? Any info will be much appreciated. BTW, we will be in a 14' NRS Rivercat(25" diameter tubes) with drysuits, helmets and all the safety bells and whistles. I have run paddle crews down Class V water and am pretty comfortable on the sticks. I, like all of us, can have my ass handed to me by the water Gods, so I am not over confident or cocky. The big ? for me is: Is the water that big or is the concern more related to its remote wilderness/canyon setting? Anyway, the anticipation is eating me up and any discussion re: this run will make my day at work that much more enjoyable.
Thanks again, abel6wt
