I have been really wanting to come up and do some sea kayaking in that area. With all the sun and melt off, rivers where raging again yesterday. Stopped for a mintue and watched the fun on boulder drop(class iv on the skykomish) just a few minutes from my place. A summer must for me…. 1 or 2 MLB games. Love the atmosphere and everything. July 1, 2008 at 8:51 am #606536 refried 93 Posts I try to hit Boulder Drop a few times every season, It’s one of my favorite places for a swim 😉 . I really should get a sea kayak but I’m trying not to let my boat quiver get as big as my snowboard quiver. right now I have 5 boats (creek boat, play boat, single IK, tandem IK, and a 14′ self bailing raft) and would like to add a cat to the bunch but a sea kayak would make more sense since I live on an island. I use the IKs around here if I feel like paddling, not the fastest boats but fun for playing around. I have paddled my creekboat to Anacortes (5 miles open water) but it’s not recommended, an 8′ boat starts to feel real small in all that water. I get lots of tankers coming by here and they leave a perfect wave about 4′ high that just keeps breaking until it finds a beach or rocks to stop it. These make perfect waves for kayak surfing, I paddle my playboat out when they pass and wait for the waves. once your on one you can ride it for several hundred yards or more. I heard of a couple guys in the Gulf of Mexico who do this with boards but run out with a boat to get out.

Then winter rolls around again 8) Are any of you Utards windsurfers? Oh yeah, I’m not done splitboarding/booting quite yet.

My favorite pasttimes include–rafting,usually starting in March and going til the water starts to drop. Then its time to bike (downhill) and get my huck on in the dirt.

But I have been riding my mtn. bike and I’ve been surfing and I have a dirtbike and I went to Mt. Adams. I guess that’s pretty fun. Okay I feel better. Putting the poo in swimming pool since 1968.

In the summer, I get in some riding (TAY), rock climbing and some backcountry bowhunting (September). Also some hikes with my wife and a little fishing.

Hey Kyle, Here’s a link for a TR on CC with conditions. Hope it helps. If you’re ever looking for another to climb with let me know as my schedule is flexible and can’t always get out with the wife. Like this weekend actually. August 5, 2008 at 4:53 pm #606550 kjkrow 353 Posts Hm, I think you forgot the link 🙂 We’re actually doing the West Ridge this weekend, but I’m no without a climbing partner for two weekends from now, the 23-24. I was thinking perhaps Luna Peak, or something down by Cascade Pass. If you’re interested, let me know.
