Probably heading to WV, but might stay local… All depends where the rain falls in the next day or so.
Ogle the WV list of rivers: http://www.americanwhitewater.org/content/River/state-summary/state/WV

And send me any requests. Probably looking to do something solidly in the the III-IV range (maybe higher depending who comes).
It’s actually winter – so in addition to the 5 essentials, bring: reliable roll, or preferably supreme river reading and bracing skills so that you don’t have to roll, and a love for cold water! Swimteam Tryouts are highly discouraged – and can result in hypothermia, or at the very least will suck!
You also Bring:
-Cold water outer gear if you have it (ideally drysuit, but drytop & drypants/wetsuit may suffice).
– The “5 Essentials” if you need them
– Limited selection of cold water garments
– Gas $
Send me any river requests, and/or other comments on the questions page. Email me any questions about gear or your preparedness for this trip. Everyone gets waitlisted till I screen your skills.
Trip times are approximate – may be adjusted depending where we go, striving to be back in time for kickoff.
