        Wow!! Hi Leland! Damn, I would have gladly joined you today. Pretty bummed that the rain didn’t happen. All kinds of warnings about flooding and everything. Oh well! Guess I’ll go riding instead.

          I can still hear his deep voice in the back of my thoughts and see that smile of his. This is a heart breaker, so sad…

            I find it interesting that they chose to drop what is probably the most used gauge in their whole arsenal. I’d be willing to bet that if anyone looked at the number of hits on their links, that the Roselle gauge and secondarily those around it, have more hits than any other.

              As Mike mentioned the Upper Yough and Top Yough do not require permits. They do like you to sign in for the Upper just to keep track of whose on the river. The Upper is dam release while the Top Yough is natural flow and you have to catch it after a good rain. Both are awesome runs. But since it’s a little harder to catch the Top Yough when it’s running, it’s definitely worth doing. Starts just above Swallow Falls followed immediately by the second drop, Swallowtail Falls. Since Swallow Falls is a popular tourist destination with an observation area, you usually have a large audience watching you run the drop. Something you might find interesting is that this is a north flowing river. So when we talk about Top, Upper, and Lower the Top and Upper Yough are located in MD while the Lower Yough is located north of that in PA.

                Easy to know for sure, test the water. Both at the park and at the park’s water source. Another death happened recently when a woman swam in a lake in Texas. A brain eating amoeba in that case as well.

                  I don’t have to work today and I’m thinking that heading to the river sounds like a great plan. I’ll be there at 1:30.

                    Tracey and I are still in the area and do plan to boat this holiday weekend. All of the Saint watershed gages show that lots of rain hit. Not sure what’s going on with the Roselle gage but I doubt that it’s correct.

                      Hi Kathy. Tracey and I aren’t going on the SE trip either and are counting on some of the rain that’s forecasted through the entire week, to include the weekend, actually makes it into the river. We plan to be at the Saint if the river is at a decent level.

                        John, I recertified last spring when John Holdmeier had someone from ACA come here. But I thought I’d share something with you that I didn’t know. I knew I was recert’ing early because my certification didn’t expire until 12/2016. But I couldn’t pass up the chance to recert here rather than have to drive a long way to do it somewhere else. Afterwards I kept expecting to see my new recert date change to 4 years from the date of my recert – it didn’t. So I contacted ACA and asked them why. This is what they told me: “…you have met the recertification requirements. However, certifications are audited on a four year certification cycle – which means that you can take your update at any time during those four years, but your certification retains its original expiration date until the end of 2016.

                        What this means: you get “more” certification time. Instead of expiring four years from whenever you complete your update, your certification expires four years from the initial expiration date itself. This coming December you will receive a brand new certification which shows an expiration date of 12/31/2020.

                        Therefore, you will not be receiving a new expiration date/card until this December.”

                        If you already knew this, fine, but it was news to me and I’ll bet there are other instructors in our group who also didn’t know this. So I just wanted to share.

                          Funny, ACA must be in the DVD business these days. I just got one from them (not 75 of them) called “Reading the Rhythms of Rivers and Rapids.” Haven’t watched it yet but will later.

                            I was holding out on replying because I wanted to see if the river was going to at least be above 0″. Looks like it will. So I do plan to boat Saturday and probably Sunday. What time do you plan to be there?

                              I’ll take one too John. You got all those – a lot of positive replies?!

                                Hey Di, I was curious what the level was when you and Leland ran the Saint? If I knew folks were going to be there even without the rain I would have driven down.

                                  It means that either Jim or Doris walked down to the low water bridge and looked at the gauge and saw that the river was at 13 inches.

                                    Sorry Julie, didn’t mean to make light of such a despicable thing as getting your boat stolen. But sometimes humor can be found in the oddest places as can be witnessed when we attend a wake for a dear friend or family member. I do hope you get your boat back and that those who are responsible for the theft of both boats are prosecuted.
