5/28/16 Wesley and I Hit The Dirty Bird aka Pigeon River again: not the cleanest river but there are some fun surf waves a hundred strong eddy lines, great views, and it is such an easy shuttle.

 The Interstate 40 traffic sounds almost constantly remind you that this is not a remote run but when your on one of those fast smooth waves, the noise is drowned out and quickly forgotten. One of the good things about this run is that you dont really see the Intersate much.

I cannot express how much I love the comfort, speed, surf-ability, and extremely high fun factor of the Liquid Logic Mullet. It is not the boat for everyone but it is perfect for me right now. The Mullet will (without a micro-second of hesitation) be my go-to boat for my next Gauley trip. Cant wait to get it on the Ocoee and New River Gorge too - so many fun surfs on those runs.
 15th Surf Session on Wave #4, or is that Wave #5? Too much Fun!

 Wesley boofing on his 2nd of three runs of this rapid. I only ran it twice.



After the run Wesley and I explored Harmon Den exit and hiked up a road/trail up the DeWatered section of the Pigeon. Very cool camping potential but I would not try to drive it without 4WD and high clearance. I do love that area!
