Blue Chutes - French River

There's been a flurry of activity lately with trip preparations going on - gear and food purchase, correspondence with sponsors, logistics, flight details etc. including lots of emails, emails and more emails!! What the heck would we do without email?! Snail mail??!! Couldn't even bear the thought of doing it the old way!

Anyhow, in the midst of all this, our group wanted to head out one more time to test some gear and a newly outfitted canoe for the trip - an 16.5ft Esquif Canyon. We have to christen her - whatever that entails? (maybe dumping the owner in the boat?!!, yeah!) Therefore we are headed to Blue Chutes on the French River to practice some whitewater moves and go over safety issues while relaxing and having some fun. We are all getting those butterflies in our stomach as we are increasingly getting excited about the expedition. This will be a good chance for our group to discuss last minute details of the trip together before the pressure starts and the stress levels builds. (hopefully a good one!) For now, all I want to think about is getting back on the water!

Well hope you've all been out paddling! Be in touch soon!

Cheers,

tPP & the RRC (Romaine River Crew)
