The State of Things/ Headed to the river

We just recieved word form Seth Warren and crew, that the river is a great low level, real technical. It rained on them the whole trip and it was very cold. There is snow at the put in.

We are headed to Dease Lake right now (4pm 9/9) and expect to make it to the river in 24 hours. It will prove to be a long and harrowing drive I'm sure.

In Seth's party everyone ran V-Drive and survived (all 7), from what we know about the river this a notable accomplishment.

Below is the forecast for the coming days, we plan to put on Saturday morning and take off on Monday afternoon.

That is the Stikine River in the valley before the big peaks.

We will do our best to check in before our put on, but if not we will report as soon as we are off the river.

Cheers for now,
