Brad and Travis were camping at the Tee Pee in Mortimer. We rode Upper Wilson Ridge and Schoolhouse Ridge. The trail conditons were good to go.

Monday after work, back up to the Watagua - Great to have the water and the daylight thanks to Mother Nature and daylight savings time

As planned I met up with Johnny Calhoun for his second run. He had already done one with Mike Huggins and Dave who lives next door to the takeout. We all four loaded up on JayCee's car and headed to the put in. The level felt like 300 cfs and most of the boofs were good to go. Unfortunately I did not take the camera. We took our time and enjoyed the run catching eddys, going for attainments and boofing away the evening. By the time we hiked up to the parking lot it was officially dusk. We got the most out of the daylight. Hopefully I can get back up there later in the week for more.

Happy Birthday Lou - Sunday on the Watagua

It was Lou's birthday and he drove down from Richmond for some Watagua. The level felt like 375 - 390ish. It was a blast. Johnny Calhoun came from Ashevegas with Eric and Russell. I think a good time was had by all. The weather was off the hook.

Finally some substantial rain. Got to get on Upper, Upper Wilson Creek. BRad and I scouted out some of Little Wilson Creek.

Gaston, Layla, Mike Huggins, BRad and I met at the Wilson Creek bridge a little after 9AM. Wilson Creek was 3.5 feet. The drive up 181 went fast and the Parkway was open enough to get us to Roseboro Rd. Gragg Prong was big, we headed to the Wild and Scenic section of Wilson Creek. I had run it once before at a low level and it was much lower than today. We had a good water level and the run was a blast. I didn't bring the camera but hopefully I'll get a few pics from Layla and BRad. We took Brads truck to the put in and after I dropped him at his truck we headed on up the mountain and scouted some big drops on Little Wilson Creek. Some of the big ones got dropped today, my hats off to them it was some very impressive steep and tight drops.
