1  General / General Paddling Talk / Re: River trip for beginner? on: July 13, 2016, 10:56:30 AM
I think these Quest 10 things are sit-on-tops?  So not such a big deal with wet-exits because you'll just fall off and then climb back on presumably.  As long as you've got a good wetsuit, I reckon go nuts.  The water is about 5 degrees in the murrumbidgee at the moment, so you'd want to get out of it pretty quickly if you fall in.  Also, keep away from trees and keep you feet up when swimming.  A decent first trip might be tharwa bridge to point hut crossing, which has some class I rapids.

Have fun.

Hey mate,

waiting to see what drops enough at the moment.  I reckon wollondilly or wingecarribe are possibilities (more likely Sunday).  Or normal shoalhaven if everything is still too high.

Can't comment on anything to do with the Burn but I second the rand deck recommendation.  I've got a Lucky Charm and it is DRY.

Maybe, negotiations are underway.

How's about this weekend if it doesn't rain enough for the Shoaly?
6  General / General Paddling Talk / Below Burrinjuck on: February 10, 2015, 10:43:22 AM
So how hard is it really to get to the bottom of Burrinjuck Dam these days?  I've never been there but it looks good on Google Earth.  Surely there's a possibility of some sneaky fence hopping?
7  General / For Sale / Wanted To Buy / Wtb: dagger rpm (type of thing) on: January 23, 2015, 08:51:30 AM
Hey dudes, I'm after an RPM (or perhaps one of their variants) as a learning boat for Fi. Anyone got one hanging around that they'd like to offload cheap? Also after paddle, deck, pfd etc in due course probably.

The run I mean, not that drop.
9  General / General Paddling Talk / Re: The Upper Molonglo's crux rapid on: December 10, 2014, 03:36:36 PM
Nah, ran it ages (couple of years?) ago.  I think it was just me and Alex.

Looking at the video, I reckon it looks harder lower when I've seen it, because there are more rocks in the landing that come into play that you would need to somehow clear, before getting smashed by the next two holes.

I also would like to know.  I would have thought Stewy watsisname would have hit it back in the day?  Looks well proper scary and hard though.
12  General / General Paddling Talk / Re: Wed afternoon (today) on: December 10, 2014, 12:53:33 PM
Me and Svendawg are down as well.  Will see yous there at 6:30.

Toaster wave was in like Flynn!

Me and Dave are doing a run meeting at Kambah at 5:20.
15  General / General Paddling Talk / Re: Sunday Paddling on: December 06, 2014, 09:13:06 PM
Keen for non early action on digbee, molonglo, shoalie etc can't do winge because I need to be back earlyish.
16  General / General Paddling Talk / Re: Murrumbidgee River Trips on: October 02, 2014, 09:36:04 PM
There is a book which describes pretty much every section of the bidgee, all the way down to the Murray. The bit just below tantangara is a great, continuous gr 3(4) bit that needs the dam to either release or spill (about 1500 ML/day is good). From there down to Cooma is pretty much 2-3 with LOTS of flat water. There's a cool gorge just below bredbo and then more flat water until angle crossing.

a) I agree, cam straps belong to the universe, not to any one person
b) Rope is WAY quicker for tying a boat onto racks.  I reckon I would go close to doing two boats with rope in the time taken to do one boat with cam straps.  In fact, I propose a race.
18  General / General Paddling Talk / Re: Red Rocks Sun at 3 PM on: September 09, 2014, 06:00:42 PM
This is a part of the snowy that has only had water probably less than 20 or so (?) times since the scheme went in back in the 60s, since its right below the Jindabyne Dam.  Its really good.

Awesome trip dudes, but honestly can we drop the RV talk?  I keep thinking that we are supposed to show up at various McDonalds in motor homes.
