Sounds like you're having a blast! My customers dad was guide at one point and had a big jet boat - last time I was there they were telling me stories about going up river for 3 days and having to drag the boat by hand UP RIVER because the water was too low! As much as I want to go bear hunting in AK I would not be looking forward to doing that...

Today we just got back from bear hunt where we took a raft with a merc. 20 horse jet up 20 mile river to the glacier and hunted. No bear, but it was an adventurous trip. We had to float back down because it was impossible to motor down through the boulder fields. Landed the raft sideways on a few rocks and took on about a foot of water in the bottom of the raft and had to bail out the whole way out. Almost lost all our gear a few times, and came close to hypothermia from being covered in water while in the glacier winds. Needless to say it was a pretty intense outing, but alot of fun.
Chili- let me know your schedule for your visit when its firmed up so we can meet for lunch or dinner. Me and Ryan would love to meet up.

We went out Grimes Creek road and then just followed some trails to Placerville for a while and back home, Had some firsts today also, first water crossings, and a good size rock we all climbed(but no one took any pictures) I'll post my pictures as soon as can download them.
Had a good time today, Thanks Guys
Ya today was awesome! We found some good trails and got quite a few good pictures! ill load up some in a few hours. Got plenty muddy today and really enjoyed the different terrains we got to go on. Sinbad made it through some big sized mud holes and climbed that huge rock with us so props to him!
Sinbad just looked at the pics and vids and they look awesome. Cant wait for next time. I think If i get my trailer done ill bring it with now that i kinda know what to expect.
You should have a blast at the concert, I think it would be a cool spot to hang out for the night and listen to some good music. A trailer would be nice to have so you can pack everything in and out, should be a nice project for you.
