Well we built out the first production Liquidlogic Stinger out of the aluminum mold and I just had to go get a run in. Its been 5 years in the making. It felt great to be in a production boat. Stiffer, better outfitting, silky smooth shell, bomber security bars, etc.. it just felt fantastic and paddled great. Here is to many more runs in the future.
I went to the Chattooga one fine spring day with some friends. We took the Stingers for a stroll. Oh and enjoy the awesome phone call by Dimitri.
John, Toby, Adriene, Biscuit, Tater, and I loaded up the van and hauled a bunch of boats over to the First Annual Cascades Race on the Nantahala river Wednesday night. Last week the call went out over the Facebook airwaves that there was going to be a race on Cascades. We love us some extreme racing down here in the south so we knew we wanted to support this event on one of the classic southeastern sections of creek boating. The race had a 5pm start, I love day light savings time so we had time to work most of the day then head over for a couple practice runs before it all went down.
As is per usual Toby “honey badger” MacDermott was faster, smoother, and in better shape than all of us so he took the top honors. He was so fast I never got a picture of him. Note the stylie medals made by Candice. Thanks Candice!
