Raft: Bigfoot Rafting CO - 12' Hyside
Just back from an awesome time at the CALI BURN FEST. Great turn out, mass start, good friends, good times.
I paddled the Green Boat and once again she came through for me. This is the best race boat and also one of the most fun boats to paddle. If you're into racing, extra space for multi days, or just going fast, it's worth checking out. Although most boats are short today, it's refreshing to get in a long boat and zip down a run....
Special thanks to Paul Gamache for organizing yet another sick event.
Also, nice work on raising money for Matt Thomas. For those who don't know, Matt (who is a kayaker from the area I grew up in) was recently involved in a crash on his mountain bike that left him paralyzed from the chest down. He does not have health insurance, and any donation is appreciated.
Donate money and get entered into the raffle for a chance to win a variety of prizes.
