Kim and I headed over to Cache Creek today. We met our friends Paula and Erol. They were renting a small two person raft to join us. It was a gorgeous day, with lot’s of sun, and a good amount of water. Paula and Erol seemed to struggle a bit at first to get the boat under control, but they figured it out, and ran every rapid without flipping. There was a boyscout group on the river that had tons of carnage. It …Story and Pictures here »
I’ve spoiled myself over the last few days. I didn’t take pictures, but I had a great few days.
Weds: S.F. American, Riverton to Peavine (plus a bit) -I got up early, worked for a bit, then drove and met Dan up at the takeout. We set shuttle, then decided to add a few extra river by paddling the bottom part of the Kyburz section.

Kim and I went to Los Angeles for Mother’s Day. It was a nice weekend, Saturday evening we went for a big banquet dinner with Po-Po (grandma) and much of the extended family. Sunday we had a quiet morning, then went to Griffith observatory, with Kim’s mom. We walked around and looked at the exhibits, then went for Mexican food. Fun. Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mothers.Story and Pictures here »

It was a little low, but still good fun.
Yesterday I went paddling. Paddled my new Pyranha Everest kayak, which was awesome. Met my friend Sabrina at 1, and went and did a low water run on the South Fork Yuba. It was fun, and went smoothly. We pulled under the bridge at 4:15, and I calculated that with some quick driving and some luck, I could catch another group of friends on another river.
I had to hustle, and then flog my poor my little truck like it’s never been flogged before, but I came screeching …
