The Green River

Nothing like a early July trip to the Green. The water was great as there has been some showers each day and the hydro plant was producing at 100% providing for a great water level. Gusto, Sleepy and Helpdesk made this trip. Helpdesk has a new GoPro HD camera that he mounted on the front of the boat. I think it made some great shots of the action. Take special note at about the 1:30 mark. You will see some cool slow motion thanks to filming at 60 frames per second. Ok, sorry for that last comment probably more than you wanted to know. Anyway, enjoy the footage.
PS. For the best picture make sure the youtube settings are set for 480p. You can check that by looking at the bottom right of the video window.

Mountain Island Lake

Helpdesk and Dan went out to Latta Plantation for a paddle on Mountain Island Lake. I forgot to bring extra batteries so... we only got maybe half the trip. But for what we did a very comfortable and steady paddle. We averaged about 2mph as we explored the coves and creeks of the lake. It was a great morning as the skies were overcast most of the morning and we found shade early. However as the morning wore on we found ourselves looking for any bit of shade we could find. We did take a swim when we returned to the shore. Overall a great paddle.
