Beutiful night on the White river near Hesperia.
When i pulled in to Podunk to Meet Dave, Rager and John, I was in Debate on dry suit or no Dry suit. Well i decided against it and then John talked me into Wearing it(thanks john).

Roger came and Hoped in my Van we drove to the Broken out Bridge Launch.. We got on the river and the Playing began.. John Had a Brand New Dagger appraoch very nice cross over / river runner boat had a Skeg and a dry hatch.. Well after we mad it past the First little rocky area the Surfing and playing began. it was So Nice out ( i was Sweating pretty bad in Dry suit). Water temp didnt seem that cold at one point i was surfing next to Roger, then i hoped off and Dave jumped in. We got a Tree acroos the river and we stopped for Potty break. At this point Dave wanted to switch boat. I hoped in the Jackson and he Hoped in the Liquid logic. We both played a little and i was to Busy talking ( i know me talking that doesnt ever happen) and didnt see the tree and Wham i was going down, Dave just happened to be in the Perfect spot for me to reach up and do a bow Rescue. (thanks Dave). Well i lost my sunglasses. Since i got them at meijers i am asking for a 5 cent donations from all group memebers (j/K). It was a great night on the River. All my Honbbies i think Kayaking/Canoeing has to be the Most peaceful and Fun.
