Whats up everyone,
Just wanted to check in with a quick blog post about one of my favourite rivers of all time… the Toxaway. This river blew my mind when I first paddled it, and things haven’t really changed in there. It is still one of the most high quality runs you can do anywhere, there are very few places on earth I would rather be. Here are a couple of photos of a sick day with a sick crew. Hope you enjoy!

It’s impossible to keep a straight face on this river. I dare you.

And enjoying the afterglow that follows.
The kicker of the day was that Daniel Stewart and Pablo McCandless got lost on the hike out, and ended up spending the night in the rain… We went back in at 5 am with Powerbars, Gatorade and gummy bears and found the lost soldiers, but I learned the important lesson of sticking with those who aren’t too familiar with the river at all times (even though DStew has been there before!). Apparently there is some shit-talking coming my way on the next LVM regarding this, so I look forward to that.
Good lines everyone,
