I found myself helping Chuck and many others as we piled 30 or so new paddlers into kayaks. With +30 degree weather it was inevitable they would paddle all three days and join the rest of us whitewater addicted paddlers.
Of course my truck would be the center of attention and the topic of many discussions...the poor ol' boat slugger earned its keep this past weekend. Not known for its human traveling capacity, the boats that travelled with it felt safe on the 2001 Nissan. With 360,000 km of road experience, these boats would make it to the river safely! Now for the getting down the river part....it has been mentioned that Chuck has about 360 years of paddling experience...so we are safe!
Once again, thank you so much to Chuck Lee and the many others including Matt and Joanne Cole, Dave Saganiuk, Janet Elder and the many others who basically hook lined and sinkered us into thinking paddling is about waking up to a 5 star breakfast and having a river run all organized!
