VA Creeking and some 200% Green

Greetings earthlings. Rain has been aplenty in the southeast the last few weeks, and there's been some really quality creeking to be had. (Gorilla at 200%). (See below for video).
Saunders and I headed up to Virginia for some action up there...

We met up with Nate Bell and Michael Shields from Virginia Tech. Big thanks to them for showing me down. (Saunders had been twice before). We set off for the river from Blacksburg. Our destination: Bottom Feeder creek. This creek is super low volume and abundant with cool boofs and tight lines. Here's a sequence of me at Kettles.

A very beautiful creek indeed.

No turning back now.

Following Saunders' excellent example.

All good things come to an end.

After the trip to Virginia, we got rewarded with some highwater green for about a week. Here's a video from Gorilla earlier today.

Hope you all enjoyed the post,
and don't forget to shower at least once a week.

I am thinking about going to UNC asheville. I'm not green material yet but I like to playboat a lot. Are there playspots close to asheville that run often. In addition, are there easier rivers, like class IV+ V Give me an email.
thanks nathan

Nice blog bro bra. Where is that photo on your blogger profile. That drop looks ginormous. Is it Fowler's creek?
