Good weather/Murtaugh Sat 10/15

Post by Dave on Wed 12 Oct 2011, 1:59 am

Twin falls Saturday weather... sunny Sunny, 70 degrees, with a 20% chance of rain in the afternoon. Who's down, anyone?

I'm interested in hitting Murtaugh this w/e and weather is looking good. Haven't run it before, and would prefer to go with someone who has. Would it just be a one day trip for you? I'd need to be back in SLC Sat night.

Well, I've only been down it twice, so unless some others come that know the stretch a little better than me, we're probably S.O.L. Sorry to get your hopes up, but I'm surprised this thread didn't get a bigger response.

Anyway, yes, it would be just Saturday. A long, but FUN day. Murtaugh is
awesome big water pool drop, with a few fairly technical moves and some
good surf. If it wasn't for the few sticky holes it has... I would feel
more comfortable taking other (class 4) boaters down it.

Some Twin Falls locals might join in, but won't know till Friday afternoon. A little late to start a carpool search.

If someone wants to come along that knows Murtaugh pretty good, I'll pay his/her share of gas.

Don't give up just yet. I'll start calling some locals... Very Happy

I'm going to be running a cat down it Sunday if anybody's interested in coordinating a shuttle. Sounds like most people are shooting for Saturday, but let me know. 208-230-4509.

Sounds good man. Tim knows.

If anyone wants to join, we have room for 1 possibly 2 more boaters.

There might be some others coming down from Boise too. We'll see.

Anyway, SYOTR Smile

Sweet day. Did the long version (Three Big rapids up top). Ended up with a group of 8. NO SWIMMERS (though I nearly did at POD, Very Happy) Finished off with some great Mexican food in Burley (El Cantoral?) Hope to do it again soon. If anyone is heading up there, am up in Logan, but will pay full share gas. Just need a few days notice. All and all, good floatin, good peeps, good food... ...good day Smile.

Dave, if water is decent and ice isn't a concern, I'd be available the first weekend of November. Definitely can't beat the filling of a big day paddling and a belly full of Burley mexican food. Damn, with your 3 runs this year, your only 97 behind Neal.

Ha! I was thinking you guys might have found a different Mexican place in Burley. But, then we got back to the car and found Dave's ratty old notepad on the windshield.



It was great meeting up with you guys, and thanks for showing me the lines. It's incredible having such a good stretch running this time of year... making the guys back in CO jealous. Keep me posted if you're heading up again.

my favorite part was when that one guy said he was going to hand paddle through door number 5, and then his buddy one-up-man-shipped him by getting out of his boat, tearing off all of his gear, and dive bombing door 4.5 buck naked except for a pair of knee-high tube socks...

i heart all things burley!!!

bueno times!!!

Thanks John, will keep you in the loop, for sure.

Got some footage from this one though. A big thanks to Steve Wiley for putting
it together. It may not have sound (because of copyright "stuff" or
something), BUT it's footage none-the-less! So, anyway, here ya go...

UPDATE: I guess he fixed the sound and shortened it up a bit, and it doesn't have the first two big rapids. But still good though. So, here ya go...

Might be heading back soon, anyone else down? Am thinking 10/29 or 11/5 depending on weather and work. Almost drysuit/wetsuit time, so be ready.

Big thanks to all, and until next time... Very Happy

Dave
