S T R E T C H I N G

I've got a question. After a nice day out in my vintage pain machine, I find that I can no longer walk down the street like a mere mortal. I am almost crippled and I find that I have forgotten which way my knees were designed to operate. I can go upstairs with mild complaints, but downstairs only wi...

Re: Under rated boats...

I got a quick reply back from Kaz at Millbrook. He said he's only built two, and that he was surprised they didn't take off.

He said that he was sure Adam would let me take his out for a ride :wink:

Re: Under rated boats...

I just took my new-to-me Descender out for a spin on the Mongaup yesterday and it was fast and fun and everyone thought I was some kind of time traveller. It was my first time in a C1, ever, and I am finding it hard to walk normally the day after. I got a foam roller and some edibles, so I think I'l...

Re: South Eastern First Descents, Overflow, etc.

It's summer and the flows are low where I'm at, just please chime in and tell me some hairy stories from Way Back When and inclue some Spicy Details about Boats Nobody Paddles Nowadays.

Never thought I'd have to pull teeth to get people to tell stories.

Snapdragon slalom CI sprayskirt to trade

I've got a medium tunnel slalom cockpit size snapdragon skirt in what looks like new, unused condition.

I'd like to trade it for a large tunnel slalom sprayskirt from just about any manufacturer.

Been eating too much pasta in quarantine.

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.

I'll start.

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

I think six beautiful cars get thrown into a more beautiful river ravine. Anyone know that river?
