Looks like Jefferson will be in tomorrow. Probably med-high dropping to medium later in the day.
Wednesday it will probably start out medium and drop out towards the end of the day.
Anyone want to head out there?

Road is good. Expect it's going to be high. It was high on Saturday with a lot less rain, though it should be dropping, instead of rising. We had to bag out because of a lack of daylight. Lesson learned....get an early start for those high water adventures. Not sure what level you're after D but the "okay" line at the Putin was under on Saturday. Have fun!

Just too much of a stretch for me. More driving than I want to get into for a run that will either be too high or too low. If it was closer I'd be down to check it out.

Jefferson will be at an excellent level tomorrow for those interested. The road is in great shape. Snow level is 500' above the put-in elevation.
Brian B and myself were lucky enough to catch it today. It was quite a bit higher then expected based off of NF Skokomish gauge. W/o Dosewallips gauge it becomes harder to nail the flow. Depending on rain fall and freeze level, I bet it runs Friday as well.

Darren

PS - JD, I think you were onto something with the level. Lots of rain must have fallen up there.

Right on Darren. Glad you got on it. We'll have to track levels on the beta page so we can get a better correlation. Big Q gauge is back online and was dropping from 900 today. Bet it was a fast run today.

Thanks again for giving everyone the word! Have a great holiday with the family.

Here's to lots of Jefferson laps....

Working Friday Brett. Out. Thanks for the heads up though.
I finally bought a GoPro yesterday at Costco. Set it up this morning and gave it a try. I'm uploading the footage to youtube now. When it's finished I will post the link. Gotta warn you though, it is un-edited footage and kind of long.
Anyone want a GoPro Wi-Fi BacPac for $40? Let me know. It's one of these http://gopro.com/hd-hero-accessories/wi-fi-bacpac/

Run looks pretty clean except for a couple spot. Killer run, D.

Flow was at 920 and dropping very slowly yesterday. We were almost sure that the run would be too low but turned out to be a great medium level. Definitely a superb run! Big thanks to Jeff and Russ for showing us down and Darren for the Beta.
