So far we are off to a great season of paddling! After spending time in Colorado and Washington, we headed to California where we found very odd spring weather which foiled some of our plans for the “typical” spring runs, but did allow us to get on a few new and obscure runs that don’t usually have water. But, after a few weeks there, we felt the need to move on once again so we headed east.

Now, we are out in Idaho now enjoying some seriously big water and realizing that the kayaking season (at least in the Western US) still has a long life ahead of it. A huge snow pack and cold spring have made conditions perfect for a long run off that should keep us kayakers happy well into July and August. And, luckily, we have tons of awesome gear to give away throughout the rest of the summer (also keeping kayakers happy). Thanks to all of our amazing supporters, we have so much cool stuff to give to you that, for many drawings, we have multiple winners.
