Hey guys,
to start with I changed my user name from ticlem to EricClement.
I think it will be less confusing on this board.
Anyways, a few of us did the salmon on sunday and it was very nice. There was a sheet of ice at the put-in so we decided to put-in a little more down stream which was no big deal. The level was good not to mention the weather. We had a few swims but that's all part of the fun. Next week the other HWY7 runs will probably be all open so I don't know what the plans are. I will probably do the salmon again on sat. but would like to run the upper black or beaver on sunday. I'll also be waiting on Bill to see what his intentions are for the week-end.
Eric!! :)

Hey Jer,
i'd be interested in trying the Salmon; my roll is pretty solid after multiple surfing attempts at Champlain, and i'd trust Eric and Paul not to leave me behind :)
i'm not confirming anything till Thursday though (meeting the knee doctor that day). 
were you thinking of day-tripping, or staying overnight somewhere?

Carine :)

Ticlem
I'm hoping this is the Eric I drove up the (very frozen) Carp with?  If not, this isn't for you, lol, and sorry for the confusion.

Anyways, are you still planning on going up to MACK fest, and running the Salmon?  I'm really thinking about driving down on Sat. am, and running it with you, if your still up for going.

Let me know what time you would want to meet out near put in, or Marmora or whatever is easiest.

Thanks much
jer

PS.  Carine c'mon with....and drag Paul along.  he keeps saying he wants to paddle new rivers.  You know we're all gonna watch out for each other, and no one is gonna race off if someone wants to walk something.  I'm fairly knew to creekin too, but am darn excited.  Think about it.  I figure its about 3 or 3.5 hours from downtown ottawa.  Think about it.

Hey carine,
you could walk everything on the salmon. Seriously it's a good river to start with. I've ran the river about 6 times and even with beginner tandom canoe skills before I started kayaking. If you could get a few sessions at champlain to get the stiffness out before you run the salmon it would be good. It's so much fun!

hey colin,
i only have one season under my belt, so while i'm not really worried about the ottawa... i'm a little nervous to paddle anywhere where there could be consequences...

Thanks Colin,
I think I might wait a bit longer before I attack creeks...

Wat is your definition of a creek ... alot of theses are minimum 15 to 20 feet wide ... thats a river ... a creek to me is where I can touch my paddle on shore both sides.

You have to come out for this!

for this river, can you paddle only the sections you are comfortable with? like the class 1-II stuff for me?

Carine,

The Salmon River is an excellent run (did it twice last year). Everything can be walked.

The Lower Black is fun and can be walked around for most parts.

I have never run the Upper Black as it is way above my level.

I did Beaver Creek and walked parts of it.

The Skootama is on my list of things to do as I have never done it.

This looks fantastic!  I just had a listen to THE IRELAND BROTHERS, great sound!  Anyone else planning to attend?  Was thinking about camping.   :P
