Chile Part 1: Low Water

After a sweet late-October run of the Dryway and a high water lap on the East Branch of the Pemi, I packed my kayak in a bag, batted my eyelashes at the American Airlines check-in counter lady, and checked a (full and very overweight) ski bag and kayak free of charge all the way to...

Putnam Creek, NY

This past weekend was a Raquette off-week, so I figured there'd be nothing to do but Deerfield Fest. Then, lo and behold, it dumped rain on Friday. I refreshed the radar every ~5 or so minutes through the whole work day and it was looking really promising right up until 6pm or so. Then the... Continue Reading →

Well, I unfortunately missed Moosefest this year, but I've learned the hard way that in New England, it's always best to operate according to... Continue Reading →

Sandusky Brook Falls

Well, I'm a bit behind because of how long I took to write up the Romaine TR, but a couple weeks ago, New England got what may have been the biggest storm it's gotten all year. About 5" of rain in 30 hours. Many paddlers were skunked by the infamous North Branch of the Winooski... Continue Reading →
