Fantastic level, Fantastic Crew, A newby and an open boater! What more could we ask for.

Everyone ran the drops they ran with tight lines and big boofs. Tony fired up every drop in his Outrage sans Big Bouncy. Chris was as smooth as butter as usual. I had a complete run and cleaned everything pointing down stream for a change. John had a great run on all of the drops he ran and opted for the alpine line on his back side out of his boat on Final Drop from 30 feet up into 12 inches of water. He wins the big balls award for 2013. How he walked away with out a single broken bone is full on testament to the sheer ruggedness of a born and bred Vermonter. You'll have to ask him about the full story.

We finished at dusk and in spite of the Superfly Snooka impersonation that John pulled - we were all smiling from a phenominal run!

The NBW - DAMN it has to be the best waterfall run in VT. I think I may have heard that somewhere else before........
