Today was another day in the woods. We started on a section of the Uwharrie River I have wanted to paddle for a while. It needs spring rains to be deep enough to paddle.

After the thunderstorms in the middle of the week, it looked promising, featuring over 12 class I rapids (easiest) and good flow. I don’t have pictures, but we started almost immediately when Sam flipped her boat when she hit a strainer (tree)

A good day: Got my VPN to play nice and watched the Tour of Flanders, always love to see a long solo break away win! Then a bike ride, my first 50 miler of the year (I had not planned it, so I ran out of water and the last 10 miles were tough.
