On this Friday, Ben Ballard, his roomate Eric Thoben and their paddling buddy Matt Jarboe went down the Cumberland at 7000 cfs. Ben says he was a little nervous, but all went well.

The river washes out at this level, and becomes wave-trains and sticky holes. Surfers is none existent and screaming right turns in to a washout wave-train that is realy swirly. The only thing you really have worry about is Last Drop. It becomes a solid class IV. The line is like threading a needle and it has some bad consiquences if you mess up. Everyone ran it successfully and they had a good time.
