THIS POST IS INCOMPLETE. JBSo after much time away from the computer and kick it time I am back for an update. The video came out and had a fun debut. I still haven't put it in a case or finished artwork. The majority of my time has been taken up by remodeling. Remodeling BIGTIME. On the list of upgrades was: kitchen, living room, and dining room. I should probably post the countertop idea on lifehacker or something to that extent. If i get any emails about them i will....

For a few years I have been hoarding random outdoor gear. For instance, i found a good roof basket for close to nothing and bought it, stuck it in my garage, and never used it. I have had my van since 2007 and it has had the ugliest boat mounting situation known to man. It hasnt bothered me much since i normally just pile all the boats inside and people sit on the couch/bed. My spare tire has been bugging me with its ugly space hoggy-ness. I decided to cut off the racks WELDED to my gutters, install some gutter towers, and install my basket with tire and bumper jack mounted on it. It involved some sawzall work, grinding, and paint/sealing work ... FUN.Glorious Chariot Layin' it all together Fish camp is a gathering we have on the north fork every year (since last year). This is a random fall on the float from victor to the little long pool crossing. Fish camp weekend was awesome and we even made shirts for the event. The day for myers branch was drawing closer. The first week in may was special, "Creek week......

After hitting up some east water i parted from my road gang and stopped off in nashville and hung out with annie's sister erika and her husband ben. We sat around an inner city fire and drank some home brew that was extremely tasty. As strange as it sounds, there is actually a pretty cool feeling you get while sitting next to a fire in a huge action filled city.i tried to impress some strangers by challenging them to a shotgun contest with my homely coors light... i got owned!.. amazing talent in nashville (not just vocal!). Check out "Heypenny" http://www.heypenny.com/ for some amazing music and unique video technique. Ben (middle) is lead vocals and dj (right) plays bass. the 3rd member pictured (left) will be named as "Victor" for winning the contest by far.After I got back i got a call from joe saying he had hit up some goods on south cedar at a phat level. I had watched joe C's video before... i was instantly drawn in by the double crux rapid chief. The lead in looked like it was filled with crazy cross ......

2009 had a great start. I was in a new house, annie got a good job and was enjoying work, Life = good. We got this new bundle of joy whose legal name is longer than mine "King Henry Von Bradley Bean." He is just about the funniest dog that i have ever owned. He isn't the brightest apple but at least he is amusing.Henry enjoys disc golf! ..until about hole 3... then he just enjoys the disc bag This is one of Henry's poses. It's called reverse bean. After the first few months of the year i got that itch... that undescribable feeling when you know you would just sleep better if you could have some foreign water beneath you for a while. I had planned to head east but wasnt sure where. After looking at AW and looking at the forecast i figured everything would be going off. I was completely correct , maybe too correct. In the week or two before i was to head out Todd asked if i wanted to cut out a creek we had been talking about. Of course i was down. We didn't know the name of it, only that he said it went and he ......

I forgot to add this to the timeline. This had been swam in by todd since he was a kid. When he talked about this "awesome 22 foot fall" first descent possibility that was roadside, i was skeptical. His definition of roadside is different than most people's. After we hit this, word got out fast! we now have several groups of people wanting to probe this but not willing to due to wood. When we ran it we put in well above the falls and there was a few trees that made things interesting. One flushed to the lip and got cut .. but fell into the pool! the creek is full on all the way to the confluence.Scouting in April. Waiting for the rain Flapjack Falls, the day of the goods. At the lip droppin itActual trip: September 2008, after several inches of rain the farmer's pond came up high enough to spill over and create our wonderland. It was gushy that day and the curtain was surging off the lip. There were no eddies to catch .. even over 100 yards upstream so bracing was a must. This was a long awaited first D .. o......
