I dug out the drysuit yesterday for the last dam release of the year the Piscataquog River in Goffstown NH. Itís not a tough paddle, and itís really short, but the paddle ends with a great BBQ, so it has become a bit of a ritual for the RICKA crew to attend. This year is was me ,Dan and Paul
The water turned on at 10:00, and we headed downstream around 10:30. I started off with a swim on the very first rapid. I wasnít paying attention and flipped on a rock as I was grabbing my camera for a picture. The water was only knee deep, so I was quickly back in my boat with little more than a bruised ego. I was glad I had the drysuit on.
We worked our way down to the surf wave at Henry Bridge Road. I did my usual side surfing flip at this rapid, but each year I last a little longer. This year, it was about 45 seconds before the inevitable flip.
Few pictures here:
No video this year, but some of my prior flips in the Henry Bridge Road hole:
