Is anyone planning on doing a trip on the 8th? One of my only free weekends...

I'm leading a trip on Aug 22 to the Pigeon. There are 2 sections possible. To run the Upper Pigeon, one should be competent on the Nantahala. The lower Pigeon is easier than the Nanty.

I'll be happy to do either one, as determined by participant preference.

So let's take a poll. Who is planning on on coming and which section do you prefer to do?

You can check the AW website for River Information to help you decide.

There are a couple of my students from the ETWC Kayak Clinic Team 4 who have said that they might want to paddle the Tuck one more time before attempting to paddle the Nantahala. We might paddle the Tuck on Aug. 8 if they are still interested. If not, we'll probably do a pick-up trip to the Nantahala on Aug 8. I usually do about 5-6 Nantahala trips and then spend Sept on the Ocoee. If we go to the Tuck, I'll post the info here and on FB.
