Toby, Cory, Zack, Michael, Zach, John, Johnny and I went to the new river this past weekend. It was a great time on the river. Day one was much longer with lots more playing in the rapids. We had 3 canoes and 5 kayaks running in our group. There were lots of Outfitter duckies running this section. At our Thayer camp we invented our own rock throwing version of corn hole. Day 2 was short and sweet with Silo being the highlight. Cory had a little swim here, got to use my throw rope to pull the boat to shore before it fell over the next drop. I definitely would like to go back hit this again some time.
