Sunny Verm!

Spot and I broke in a Verm Virgin today. Dave's first run on the Verm went very well and he was tearing up Donut at the end. Donut is still moving fast. The water was about 2 inches higher than yesterday. IMO Donut right now is the place to play. The ice bridge is melting fast. Dave and I used it today but I don't expect it to last much longer. This has been a unique treat this year as it goes just as soon as the spring flood waters come. So far on my days off I've only missed paddling on Monday. Anyone free Thursday? 2ish??

Oh my gosh Nora! This is NUTS! and I mean that in a good way. I'm thinking it's a great way to fill in the gap between ice climbing and rock climbing.

This is only the begining and the water level isn't all that much yet. More rivers are going to open and be much bigger! Let me know when you want to start. The best way without buying all the gear is to head up to UMD and they supply everything...Great teachers too. Or Rapidsriders has a course that's alot of fun also. We'll talk!
