John Thomas’ Pigeon Trip

Posted by Spalding Hurst

July 3, 2010

The whole Thomas Group, Uncle Pat, Tim, Bo and Spalding were at the the Cosby Campground in Tennessee this weekend to paddle the Dirty Bird (Pigeon River). The trip was to honor John and his soon to be married self.
We all rolled in on Friday to camp and paddle on Saturday. We made two runs down the class III Pigeon on release day with one kayaker, raft, duckie and a Shredder.
The Pigeon was very busy with commercial rafters and it was mayhem at the put-in both times. Traffic was heavy on the river most of the time, but still not as bad as the Ocoee.
Jay cooked up a real nice meal for everyone back at camp after a very fun day on the water.
