    Default central belt sun 22nd oct

    Anyone up for a paddle in or around the central belt tommorow as the mutineer is still feeling a bit under the weather . Don't mind traveling for a few hours if you feel like heading a bit further afield.

    Was planning to head up Endrick water from Balmaha and see how far I got. Anything goes though, was there today so don't mind going somewhere else instead.

    Philip, I'm dying to go on a river jaunt. No idea about grades but happy to swim and I know you're good for a rescue(and probably a loan of a helmet).
    It's just kind of short notice. River trips seen to involve a touch of logistics(have you got a trailer you've been keeping quiet? )

    I'll be in Balmaha at about half ten for more poling practice.

    In my book poling = helmet. Ejections from the boat tend to be violent and the big stick gets in the way. Actually, a full face guard might be in order.........ask my fat lip.

    If it wasn't for the rain in our lives there would be no rivers. X 2

    Having had another couple of violent ejections today I'm inclined to agree. Was deepish both times but I could see that diving headlong into rocks could be ugly.
