Upper New July 4th

Posted Posted in Uncategorized

Rafted the Upper New from Glade Creek to Grandview Sandbar with Chris and Lily. We were testing out the new seat and new oar frame configurations. Level was 4.5 feet on the Thurmond gauge.

It was a great way to spend a scorching 4th of July. I made my own fireworks with a “big bang” on the shuttle ride. I hit a rock and crashed my bike. Got some road rash and a sore shoulder.

No worries though. The bike was fine. More photos in the Paddling gallery.

Rafted and kayaked the New River from Glade Creek to Stonecliff. Camped overnight along the river. Level was about 6 feet on the the Thurmond gauge the first day and about 7 feet the second day. Enjoyed a nice dinner and camp fire. We did get some rain overnight. Aaron finally caught some fish in the morning.Walked through the tunnel at Dowty Creek to see the waterfall. Just a great time with some old and new friends.
