Re: South Eastern First Descents, Overflow, etc.

Jim has two rapids on different CT rivers named after him from what I understand. Michaud's Hole on the Natchaug and Michaud Falls on the Hubbard.

Re: South Eastern First Descents, Overflow, etc.

Holy nutsack, that's crazy.

Were C1s more popular with crazy people (and in the general boating community) in the 70s and 80s?

Re: South Eastern First Descents, Overflow, etc.

On my first run on the Narrows of the Green, I ran Sunshine backwards and walked out of the gorge without my boat or my paddle.

Re: South Eastern First Descents, Overflow, etc.

What got me going on this was finding that Allan (or was it Robin?) was the namesake for the last of the Five Falls on Sectioon IV of the Chattooga. I mean really, how does one get the surname SOCEMDOG? My father is our family's geneaologist and I don't think he has ever seen a more radical surname....

South Eastern First Descents, Overflow, etc.

I've been trawling through AW posts and was wondering what Alan Singley and Allan & Robin Socemdog were paddling when they were running first descents of Overflow and Big Creek back in the day. Alan was apparently running first descents of Overflow in sections solo, with his dog on the banks of the ...

Re: Putting a new handle on a fiberglass Werner paddle

Thanks, Adam. I suspected as much. I'm just always looking for a secret thing that makes the solution more interesting than getting the obvious thing. Watching The Italian Job on Amazon Prime. Wondering if it's a good movie or not, and if Charlie's Angels is based on this because Michael Caine (Char...

Putting a new handle on a fiberglass Werner paddle

I know there are a million epoxies out there, just looking for a recommendation on which one to use to put a laminated plywood handle back on a fiberglass Werner paddle. I had bought a long paddle off some guy on ebay, and cut the shaft down to my liking, and turned the fiberglass off the plug end o...
