    Default Spring Shallows...

    Just a short vid of a couple runs from last week...the shallow water finally opened up...

    Grem, Akdsldog, and I messing around on the Talkeetna and the other trip was Grem and I messing around on Knik...

    It looks like I increased the speed on some of the clips but they are all real time...not sure if it is because of the new cameras or because the throttle was pretty much pinned....lol.... ;D

    If it is loading slow, make sure the "HD is off"....

    Default Fast boat.

    Hey tjm, what kind of speeds were you getting on the river? From the video it sure looked like you were really scootin along. Is there a 200 or 250hp Merc in there? Looked like a good time although it seemed like the camera guy may have had a few dodge the limb moments.

    not sure...I wan't looking at my GPS too much when underway...lol...I'd have to guess average was around 27-30, a little slower in the corners...maybe bumping 35 every once in a while...basically I was going as quickly as I could without blowing the corners....well, except for the last 2...

    yeah, I don't know what Grem's problem is...he doesn't like getting hit with the brush on the bank.......whiner...lol..

    tjm, how much snow left of the banks of the talkeetna? Itchin to hit the trails
    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

    basically none...very little snow, mostly just ice...I'd guess by this weekend there will be very little left on the river...

    Up in the trees (on your trail) there may be a little left because it was packed hard and shaded, but I doubt you'd have any issues riding it...If I had an itch to run that trail I wouldn't be concerned at all...Have a good time but you might as well leave you fishing rods at home, the river was pretty muddy....too bad bird hunting is closed, you'll probably see quite a few out there struttin' their stuff...
