A group of five of us went down to the Ocoee (oh-no-wee) last weekend to get some boating in. According to some of the locals, it was flowing at its highest flow in about two years. The upper and middle sections were running, so we got a chance to check out some of the play features on the olympic course down there. To be honest with you...not that impressed. I have more fun at Wausau! We met some great peeps and did have a pretty darn good time. Ran into some folks that i paddled with at Rock Island in January, one of which took 3rd at Reno this year (jonathan). We drove all night on Friday and got about 2 hours of sleep on saturday morning, so by the end of that day of paddling, we were all pretty pooped. Managed to make time for a beer at the rafting companies little outside bar though. I was a little dissapointed with the river though to be honest. I was hoping for a little bit more challenging rapids and a bit deeper play features...aside from hell hole, which i had the biggest loop of my life in and we finished out sunday on and hit up for a few hours monday morning before heading home. Great weather, and scenery the whole weekend! I will be in Colorado in a week and am really looking forward to it, hopefully i will get some great pics to throw up~peace
