Re: RIVER LUNE (Tebay to Rawthey Confluence)

Paddled from Beck Foot to the Rawthey confluence yesterday while the Lune was dog low, pretty sure we scraped down more than we paddled.

Re: One for the GoPro users.....

I'm looking at getting a length of fiber optic cable to run from the front of the casing down to under the peak of my helmet, shouldn't be too hard to make and shouldn't be more of a snag hazzard than a lanyard on it.

HF Serpant replacement

Well as happens things wear out, my girlfriends Serpent has seen many years of use and if finally giving up the ghost.
