Whitewater

17 Mar

Angela sent us this link.  Some friends of hers made these runs yesterday in the high water.  The first falls (Broken Dam) is in Fall Creek.  Jay almost died there running it alone when he was 17 years old in an old style kayak.  The boat tip got stuck in a hole underwater.  Jay managed to get out while upside down underwater under the heavy fall of water.  He had not informed his family or friends where he was going or what he was planning to do.  It was in May, when the water is considerably warmer.  These guys are all wearing wetsuits.  The second falls is near Sackett bridge on campus and is where Jay and friends fish for trout and bass later in the spring.

Jay and Brian have also had police and firemen come and assume they are planning to commit suicide during their fishing expeditions.
