    Not to cut into the 8:30 action- but I am not a fan of the river at 6″.
    Some of us are planning a 1 pm trip and hopefully catch the rising crest.
    Hope it goes to 15″ again!

    Can’t get out of work, but plan to come over right after.  Be there around 6 if anyone is up for a late run.

    Yeah!
    Still going up- but remember, the level reading at 72 takes at least 2 hours to get to MS.
    Yesterday I put in on the crest at 72 and rode it down, and even though I was going really slow and enjoying the solitude and nature (eagles and egrets, turtles, water snakes, etc.) I still had to wait a bit for dbl drop to go to 15″.
    So it’s 9:15 now- the 15″ that registers now, will not be at MS until 11….and if it peaks higher…..icing on the st fran cake!

    What a day! There were so many people on the river I kept thinking it was Saturday.
    Strange levels thru the day…12″ at cat’s paw, but double drop went into 15 inches, then by take-out at 5 pm it was 11 inches.
    We’ll try it again tomorrow- D at 1 pm.

    Should have posted last night, but D Bridge was ~6 inches at 8:45 last night.  Me and Eric had the entire river to ourselves.  Too bad we missed everyone, but still the best day ever!

    Whoa, I missed boating with the famous John Kuthe!  Thank you all for boating with Colleen yesterday and showing her how the pros of the MWA roll, she told me she had a great time and is looking forward to learning how to get better and better on rivers like the St. Francis.  This is why this organization is great – new people can come in and hang with some of the best.

    It was a wonderfully surreal day with the changing water levels. My wife just laughs now when I say it’s
    the last day of the paddling season.

    I’m not one of the pros, I didn’t even flip!

    Colleen looked epic! Hit every roll, no swims, and styled a number of things!
