Dropping treats, coming in hot, routing the goods and stomping the stoutness - Zak Shaw California Spring Tour

"Dropping treats, coming in hot and stomping the stoutness"
I'm pretty sure we're still talking kayaking here....The whitewater in Cali keeps me on my toes enough as it is without trying to keep up with the jargon/smack.

Ben Jackson fires off plastic surgery, South Silver.

After some time on the Cal Salmon we rolled south. I had a week of freedom before heading to Portugal and ultimately the Norwegian Arctic.
Phil Boyer and Rachel Moore were on a similar program so we headed south to the Kaweah River.
After a long drive on 99 south we arrived in "Three rivers" and quickly dressed for the Hospital rock run.

stout adj = possessing or showing courage and determination.
Stoutness - Big and intimidating rapids that hand out punishment if they are not stomped.
Rachel Moore stomping the sections first move.

The following day Phil and I set shuttle with Charlie and Ben for the East fork run! Its a top quality run and with a pushy flow we had was a tense day out.

Charlie watches Phil Boyer dial in a must run drop early on.
The third day Charlie and I joined a team of 4 others and rallied to a section higher up in the Kaweah drainage.
