River moods. We took an inflatable kayak but forgot the pump so we improvised with duct tape and an emergency tire pump. Nothing crazy like last weeks adventure, just a mellow float introducing friends to the river. #kayaking #riverstories #nooksack #pnw #typicalweather

“Why can’t I touch this water?” “Sir, it’s holy water, it’s Cauvery, she is born here and gives life to thousands of people.” Head priest at Talacauvery, Coorg, Karnataka. “But it’s a completely different treatment to the river downstream.” “She will curse very soon.”

Weird story of the day. Went for a river trip, sun was shining warm and bright on a lower mostly braided section of the Nooksack river when we came across a human body face down on a gravel bar between two major channels. We had seen search and rescue up the river earlier so it wasn’t completely unexpected. I saw the buck naked body and was able to eddy out and run up to turn the body over and start cpr but I knew it was a long shot. My buddy missed the eddy and was on the downstream side of the channel unable to make it to me. So I started to do chest compressions and realized the guy had no pulse and was not breathing among other complications that I don’t think are appropriate to share here. He was definitely dead and stiff but there was no reception when I tried calling 911. So I ended up dragging the body further on the bar so it wouldn’t get swept away, got a gps point from my iPhone and we floated down to a ranch where we were able to get a hold of emergency services and direct them to the body. After they secured the body and we returned to our kayaks, we had another couple hours of float time to reflect on everything that happened. Pretty weird day. Anybody ever deal with something similar? I guess the moral of the story is to be prepared for anything and be grateful for the time and health we have. #weirdday #riverstories #kayaking #contrast

Wet Day 💦

What happens on Tons, doesn't stay on the Tons. This rapid named "The Mohji Cocktail", on the lower/middle Tons threw up a nice surprise when you least expected it. When you thought that the gradient was done and the rapids had started to ease off, the river had one last punch waiting for us right at the end of day 04. The first half of this rapid was easy and required the usual manuevring around some rocks and pourovers. It was at the exit where the entire river current was pushing right, around a big rock and into a massive hole that you could only see once you were right on top of it, where we had all the #fun.
Needless to say a few of the kayakers didn't spot the hole and ended up gettng trashed for a while before being spat out. Watch till the end for the trashy action. Entertainment guranteed :)
