Major Hazard on the Blue

The drop leading into Ford Hole now has a very sketchy hazard. The manhole that formed the eddy at the top of the drop on river left has been washed off of the main line. There is now a crazy hole where the manhole was that would kill someone if they end up in it. The manhole box itself has washed d...

Re: Rain, rain, rain... paddle!

The rivers were great yesterday. The wave at Mill was fun as usual with Andy, Brewer, Kevin, and myself making it out for that. The Blue was at an awesome level. Maybe my favorite level yet. We had a good sized crew out to make that run. Tons of great play to be had at yesterdays level. Ford hole wa...

Re: Lawrence KS, Whitewater Park

I agree 100% Dave! The boaters around here would improve dramatically with access to quality WW on a regular basis. I'm getting tired of the "local" runs that are 4+ hours away.

Re: Lawrence KS, Whitewater Park

I will have to respectfully disagree Troutdude. I would much rather have a world class, 365 day controlled flow, ww park. If you have looked at the US Whitewater Center in Charlotte you would realize that that could not be even close to duplicated at Bowerstock. A park like Charlotte would make Lawe...

Re: Hello! Where to buy rack, vessel?

You might try Sunflower Outdoor in Lawrence. Other than that there is not much but big box stores.

There are several options in MO and AR if you want to drive a little.

Indian Creek Access

Another heads up about river access... Last time Indian ran I was approached by security in the lot of the medical building we have always parked at. They were very nice, and asked me if we could park in the "circle drive" right before you turn into their private lot. They do not have issue with us ...

Cossatot

Here is an edit from last weekends trip down the Tot. My brother and I drove down from KC early Saturday and returned after paddling that evening. It was a long day but well worth it. My GoPro died right before the Machine so hopefully someone else caught all of the carnage that insued. I had a grea...

Ocoee Video

I finally got around to editing my Ocoee vids from our latest adventure. I didn't get as much good footage as I would have liked, my camera kept fogging up on me.

That is a well done video. I had a blast last year volunteering as a safety boater. The ACC is a great group. If you are new to paddling I highly reccomend it...if you like partying around a campfire, it is even better.

I saw that the flow was getting cut at Dierks today. From what I read it is not gonna be running tomorrow. For your sake, I hope I am misinformed.
