Mission Accomplished....

 

Mellow whitewater, with enough features not to get bored, but make moves, and get comfortable in a boat again...  Chris had been eyeing this stretch forever, and the lower section has seen action for years.  We made a long trip out of it and brought along an old friend that the boating community has sorely missed.

 

Packie was back on water for the first time in over 3 years...  We had a long stretch of class 2 in front of us to get a lot of strokes in to make it from Greensboro Bend to Hardwick on the upper Lamoille.  The water was a little two low, but the company was top notch, and the weather was idyllic.  

 

I'd highly recommend this stretch of river to any beginner looking for fun eddy hopping and easy rapids.  Some of the corner pockets have wood and the MASSIVE drop in East Hardwick should be looked at carefully pending the level, but its a pretty stretch that a beginner should check out.  It was also a perfect reintroduction piece for Dave.

 

Now lets start doing some rain dances and get the flow back in our rivers!
