Well, what can I say, it’s been hectic around the office and we’re slacking on Monday Morning Madhouse. To keep you satiated, here’s a little video from some of the things that have been distracting us over the last few days. It has been raining a lot for the southeast these days, and it’s hard to resist the urge to go kayaking. Here’s a little bit of what we’ve seen over the last few days, and there is more to come. Within this massive HD video you’ll see some Raven Fork, Overflow, and Dick’s Creek in Georgia. Just a note, if you watch these HD videos full screen, make sure scaling is OFF, the option is in the upper right hand corner of the video screen. Enjoy.

This just in:
Here is Cooper Lambla strokin’ the Bable Tower on the Linville River. He woke up on Sunday morning and knew that he must take some golden strokes for Jah because it was, after all, the Sabbith. BooneTown…. Spreading Niceness. Contributed by Will Stubblefield
Wednesday night we decided that we were going to be on the “Mark Miller Plan.” The idea was West Fork of the Pig with a Big Creek bailout. The radar looked good and our hopes were high. We woke up Thursday morning to a disappointment. Nothing was running. Not the West Fork, not Big Creek, not even the Rocky Broad. Instead of joining the masses at the Green, we decided to wait it out and see if something would go. About 3 o’clock, the North Fork of the French Broad finally hit minimum. We decided to keep it local instead of driving anywhere so out to the North Fork we headed. Now since Mark Miller talks so much trash about this particular river (as he did all day Thursday), I have posted this shot of him stomping it at Boxcar. Not as impressive as the Metlako shots, but then again, we don’t have any 80 footers handy. Enjoy.
This is a reminder about the 2009 Spring Break Wet Kayak Contest with Werner Paddles . We have two videos in and want to let everyone know a $200 value Werner Paddle and an LVM Subscription are on the line, so get to work. Deadline April 19th.
Ian Garcia and Tyler Bradt, both from Montana, came to Hood River to run big waterfalls. Our first day was stout, Ian and Tyler decided to warm-up on Metlako Falls on Eagle Creek. I think this was the 6th and 7th descent of this falls if you count the innertube descent. They both styled the drop with only a slightly sore neck to show for it. Looks like this week is gonna be good.
Rather than you all having to listen to John and I drone on about something weird about our great sport, we decided to put up this video. It’s our first shot at HD on the webnet, what do you all think? It requires extra work, a lot more time, and takes up more space. The main advantage is you can watch the video full screen without a loss of resolution. Extra download time… Feel free to comment and let us know what you think. This video is a sample of some footage we got from Geoff Calhoun from this past winter on the Great Falls of the Potomac. Look for more of this, it’s good stuff. Check it…

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
I guess since we’ve been so slack on getting these up for the last week or so, you all, our viewers, have taken the golden stroke into your own hands. Here is another Golden photo contributed by Jeff Simcoe. In this article of evidence, Jeff and Jamie Klein achieve the rarest of rare, the synchronized G.S.. Stunning, we’ve never seen this before, but had heard of it once or twice. Congrats to Jeff and Jamie on capturing this moment, and we welcome any more input from anyone else. Just shoot us an email, email@example.com.
If you ask Mike Moore of Harper’s Ferry, WV what the Golden Stroke is about, he might say that its about doing something different, being outside the box, and having as much fun as you can while doing it. Keep it up Mike!
