Gauley Baby!

This is a short clip of the last Class V rapid we hit on the Gauley River in West Virginia. I believe that last rapid was called Sweets Falls. We got caught in Box Canyon. I blame Gabe.

I was there for Gauley Season 2007. Me. Uncle Ron. Mike. Gabe, the evil one who wanted me launched from the raft. The church dudes from Cincinnati, OH.

I'm in the rear of the raft, along its left-hand side. Yellow helmet. Yellow so they can identify my lifeless body floating downriver when I get dumped from the raft in the middle of a hit on a class V.

Luckily that didn't happen.

There's always next year....

Thanks to Rivermen -- we'll see you at Gauley Season later this year.
