Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Let’s go kayaking! It has rained a ton recently, and goshen still has a LOT of water. But Saturday should be prime time fun.
To come on this trip you need to have a solid roll and solid boat control in class III+ to IV water. You must have paddled Goshen or equivalent at least once without incident. Also, Saturday’s levels will still be BIG. 2000+ hopefully. If you have questions about your ability to do this run, email me!
Unfortunately, I don’t have time to drive out to Dave’s house, so if you need any paddling gear, you’ll have to procure it on your own. I can also only carry four boats and my rack is kinda sketchy (it flew off on the interstate once) so it might be better if some one else drives that has a bigger car.
I know the lines pretty well at below 2 kcfs, but above that, I can’t guarantee that I can show you good lines. Also, my rescue skills are not great, so if you swim or get into trouble, you should feel comfortable rescuing yourself as I can’t guarantee that I’ll be able to rescue you or your gear.
