Leaving town tomorrow after work for some time away from humans. Gonna get some paddle time, hiking time and hot spring time in. I'll return with a short write up and some footage of the trip. Well I'll update that trip it rained like crazy 5" at diamond lake. I paddled a whole 2 1/2 miles on saturday and nothing on sunday. The highlight of the trip was chilling at toketee hot springs. I haven't been in a boat since, have definitely lost my desire to boat lately. It's funny to think I could care less about kayaking. At one point that's all I cared about.

Some pictures I took of kayakers, rafters and sup boarders on race day. It was put on by www.goldhillwhitewater.org. I thought about joining in but my laziness precluded me from getting to the registration table on time. Seventy five boaters showed up to this late notice event so I would expect that next year's event will attract many more boaters.

I finally decided to replace my mti proplay rescue vest with an astral pfd. I should have bought one four pfd's ago, It's fits very well and gives you plenty of free movement. It's way less bulky than my proplay, if your in the market for a rescue vest I wouldn't hesitate on picking the green jacket up. I purchased mine from www.outdoorplay.com and saved 15% with a coupon easily found online.

http://web.thedailycourier.com/southernoregonoutdoors/stories/adventure.html?h=kayak Thanks to Zach for the great article. I remember telling him if he actually got a whitewater kayak that he would be addicted to paddling. Brock and I met up with him in Jacksonville for the drive up, we both assumed he he had an IK in his trunk. It turned out to be some inflatable dragonfly thing, needless to say he was dumping water every couple hundred yards and working hard. I finally got to paddle with him a year later on the same run and well he had gotten a remix and was paddling pretty good.
