Re: River Gauges

The gauge on the Little Saint Francis will show what is happening in the water shed. The gauge is at Fredricktown. https://waterdata.usgs.gov/mo/nwis/uv?site_no=07035000 Looks like it peaked at 2,000 CFS early morning of Jan 17, 2017, corresponding to 8.5 feet on the gauge. The typical lame reading ...

That looks good. I would be there except I committed to guiding the Iowa dudes on their first whitewater experience.

Chris Jordan's film Midway has now premired at the Toronto International Film Festival. I found a download link but the site was asking for signup and registration info, so I decided not to post a link here. If it shows up on Vimeo or someplace with easy access I will post a link.

Charles City

I was there from KC last weekend. Charles City has a fine whitewater park. I think it is a good use of public money and sure to enhance the quality of life for people who spend time there. It was good to see the whole bunch of people from KC and elsewhere. I didn't do much boating because I was quit...

I also hauled out several bags of plastic bottle trash at the Mill Creek wave. I surfed the Atlantic salt waves at Daytona beach in my kayak and poste...
