2013 Paddling Day 12 - Middle Gauley, WV

Had a great day on the Middle Gauley with the Beyers, Adam, Kevin, and Julia

It was a personal first on this section of the river.

Had a swim when I tried to catch this small eddy that was in behind a huge boulder above a crazy hole.

Almost made it but ended up sliding off the rock backwards into the hole.

After seeing how shitty the Lower Gauley Putin in road has become ... I will not drive my vehicle down there.

In Lost Creek for the night ... Leisurely drive back home tomorrow

Not sure what the level was.

2013 Paddling Day 11 - Cheat River Canyon, WV

I decide to do a quick road trip to the USA.

Paddled the Cheat River Canyon with Al, Tommy, and and I forget the other guy as he was a kayaker.

It was a great hot sunny day ... which I had brought my paddling shorts ... ended up sweating in the drysuit.

I swam at Recyclatron as I tried to punch the hole instead of taking the normal line.

I will have to re-think going into Phils Hole on the Ottawa now.

As normal the takeout road still sucks and it is now worse then last year.

Luckily the new wheels made it down and up ok.

Had a kayak slide off the roof ... need to remember cockpits face out when putting them on the roof.

Spent the night with the Beyers in Fayetteville, WV

The level was 2.0 feet
