This Blog

This blog is dedicated to explorations of spirit, life, adventure, and people. I hope that it encompasses much more than the actions of people, but rather creates a more complete picture of what it means to be an athlete and a person in the outdoor community.

Portages? part I...

The Portage: Palguin
This rapid is incredibly clean and nearly impossible to do upright due to the entrance.  We had five people run it and one of us got hit pretty hard on the shoulder. Typically you submarine through the first 8 foot drop and gain your bearings just before rolling off the ten footer downstream.

Underwater acrobatics

Trying something different: seal launch into the middle

There. It is done now. No reason to ever do it again. Too bad that entrance isn't better...
