This year it was back to good ole Sugar Mountain! We arrived very late on Thursday night and woke up to single digit temps outside. Gusto and I took a short morning stroll through new snow that had fallen overnight.
Saturday we took a trip up to a vineyard and generally trekked around the mountains.
Sunday we hit the slopes at Beech Mountain. It snowed the entire time we were on the mountain.
Sunday before kickoff we took a hike in the woods.

Day two of our 2012 Charleston trip. We did approximately 5 miles on a trip to and then around Fort Sumter. Leaving out it was cool and windy. The water was chilly as well and kind of choppy. As the day wore on the wind died down and it became an almost perfect day to paddle to one of the great historical sites of South Carolina.Paddle Out to Fort Sumter at EveryTrail

Helpdesk, Gusto and Hiking Geer made the trip this year. On day one we took our bikes out to Bull Island. The morning air was a bit cool but it warmed up nicely as the day wore on. We tried placing the GoPro on the bike for some shots of the interior island. However, the trails were just too rough and the camera really bounced around to much to make clear pictures. But we did get some excellent footage on the beach as we road through Bone Yard Beach on the northern tip of the island. From there we headed over to Alligator Alley and found quiet a few gators. I stopped counting at 20 and some were over 10 feet long. Gusto estimated one at close to 15 feet. Good thing these boys were fat and happy. We didn’t look like a steak to them this day.Bull Island on Bikes at EveryTrail

Just another great trip down the Green. Gusto, Helpdesk and Sleepy made the run this time. Helpdesk wrote a little song about it. Just a couple verses… sing along in your best Johnny Cash voice.
I hear that water comin’
Running ‘round the bend
I hope to see the sunshine
As we try to score a ten
Sleepy will be backward
No matter what Gusto Said
The water rushing quickly
Helpdesk shakes his head!
The day will be a good one
Another for the list
We are getting older
But giv’n the green our best

2012 Landsford Canal State Park
Here are the river flows for the few days before and after our trip on June 1st. Note that we were on the water between 2pm and 5pm
|We have paddled this section with water discharge at less than 1,200 cubic feet per second. So it looks like we were in at about 1,800 or so and it wasn't so bad. Would like it to be over 2,000 for the best runs.|
|This graph shows the Gage height. Looks to be just under 6 feet when we started.|
