    First off, if you’ve never seen whitewater summer, do it. It’s a 1987 Kevin Bacon feel good Classic. Second, it’s good to be back on splitboard.com when Fall is in the air….always feelin good about now :doobie:

    Diggin the new site…and smilies too,BCR :thumpsup: Lots of good tr’s from the summer from everybody. Y’all have motivated me to throw some pixels up from my spring and summer. Enjoy

    Thats a slice of what my summer was like, chasing the snowmelt around. Cant wait to start the cycle all over again this year. Bring on some snow. :drinks:

    Looks like an awesome Summer! I went rafting for the first time last weekend and totally dug it. We did the Tieton in Naches, WA. Super fun!

    I may just take it up as my a new way to spend money….er, I mean sport!

    haha, that movie is a classic. I love the rope swinging scene, scared the shit out of me when I was a kid.

    Sweet TR too, looks beautiful.

    Did you spy Caldwell’s line in that cave?

    Shiiiit, at least I ride my bike….somebody was just pinnin the curves and decided to take a little detour off trail…when my bike met my face and left me with 10 stitches. Aint no thing. 😥

    Thanks for bein stoked dudes. Eco, ya it scares the shit out of me too sometimes….alot :puke: But kayaking really does teach you to take that fear and turn it into focus. And it’s usually not the big waterfalls that scare me as much as big stompy ass holes like you see in the first pic, in the Grand Canyon.

    SketchyT, stay away if you know whats good for you :mrgreen: This shit IS spendy$$$$

    HFT, I didnt know about Caldwell until i got home and was looking at my friends Alpinist mag where it talked about all that. He’s a big climber and wants to do somethin like that next year. It just takes alot of time when you have a long way to go and soo much other stuff to see. I didnt recall anything about him climbing in the Cave though…course i didnt read the whole article. Watch out, I’m gonna send that shit next year :headbang:

    :drinks: :guinness: :pals: :puke: Just tell me if i’m gettin a little overzealous with the alcoholic smilies.
