High Water Raven Forking

The Oconaluftee gauge is at 340cfs and +100cfs an hour when I checked it before my last class of the day. Excited, I messaged a few people who I knew would be interested in going. Some people for their first time. “It won’t be over 15 inches,” I thought. Throughout my class period, dreams of …

We are all between swims…

MUCHO REMAR, UN POCO NEDAR

While the Northern hemisphere was providing a poor winter, Zan and the guys went far South to reunite with friends and Rivers they met last year. In Chile and Argentina they found them, summer and many more. Whitewater, smiles, good times and living from day to day; those are things worth chasing! Love towards Rivers …
