Re: Looking to tag along a group of paddlers driving out to the Alps or Norway

Hi Cameron. I've been thinking of a last minute trip for couple of weeks around the alps from around the 20th June to 12th ish of July. I was thinking of the Isere as it's on the to do list, followed by a few classic or other new runs. Perhaps followed by an epic drive over to the Soca (where I know...

Re: For Sale Dagger & Pyranha Burn M

Toby,

I'm based near Manchester but would deliver at 20p mile each way (40p a mile rtn).

I'd be happy to meet a courier once payment was received, or i could get it to the Tryweryn sometime (then perhaps drive some further way at 40p/mile).

Mark.

Re: Wanted-Dammaged small creaker

Hi, I have just collected my M Burn from Kayaks NW after they sent it to the Pyranha factory for a repair. It looks like a pretty bomber repair. I would part with her for £200. Blue and White. Can arrange photo's if required. Let me know by PM as i'm not on here that much these days.

I am headed to North Wales this Weekend though so if you can get as far as say Bala or similar I could pick it up. Either Friday night or Sat...

Re: An "alternative" river in the north alps that's running now?

The Upper Isel, around Virgen is likely to be running, but it isn't the kind of run I would consider doing alone. Class 4+ with an impressive fall. There's a play run just above Lienz which is probably a little tame for you then there's a very short section of 5+ between the two sections mentioned w...

Crash and Burn!

Finding these clips so entertaining I have failed to go out and buy beer on a friday night...so far anyway. Why is carnage so captivating? I think it's the attempt to put yourself in their position and learn from their very irregular situation. http://rideroftheyear.org/index.php?option=com_content&...

Re: River Coulin Scotland (new Run???)

Photo's of the slides look pretty sweet. How much rain had they taken to get into that condition?

Would they run frequently?

How far timewise are these from say Ft.Bill or another familiar base?
