We paddled all day, narrowly escaped a thunder storm on the river, battled off mosquitoes and got home in the wee night hours. It was a fantastic day spent with Esteban Castano '14, Ari Koeppel '15, Isaac Green '17, Alex Lochoff'17 and Jesse Feldman-Stein '18.
And while it seemed like the weekend couldn't get better, with night came rain. At 2:00 PM the next day, the same crew (except with Jon King '15 and not Isaac) headed to the famed New Haven River (IV+) in Vermont at an amazing level around 800-950cfs. It was big and fun. All was well, except for a harmless swim in the rapid before Toaster (an 18' waterfall) which led to the retirement of our yellow Nomad 8.1 as it went over the falls :,(. (Jon was unscathed).
