Hi everybody,

I just moved back to Seattle from Germany after missing 3 snow-melt seasons, I sure don't want to miss the remainder of the 2014 season. What's up this weekend?

Welcome back Oliver!
tlleight -  Icicle and Tumwater are super sweet right now. Top tye is probably in as well.
If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there.

Hi Tiziak, thanks for posting.

Levels are supposed to go up for this weekend. Maybe the skydrainage with Foss and Top Tye are a good destination ?!

Icicle and wenatchee river fest as alternative. But I don't have a playboat yet, so wenatchee is somewhat boring in a creeker...

Tumwater as sweet as it might be, I think, I'll give the bigwater-tumwater a pass until I am warmed up.

Anyone interested in running something midday tomorrow or pretty much anytime on Saturday? Im new to the area for paddling and have only paddled the Skykomish thus far, I would down to run that or something else in the IV-V realm.

Hi Neal, 3 of us area-newbies are going to paddle something Saturday+Sunday. We are thinking cooper or icicle creek. Final gauge check on friday evening to call the shots. You are welcome to join us!!!
Where do you live? We can probably also form a carpool...
I know the cooper fairly well, and have done the upper icicle twice. The crowds are probably going to be at the icicle and wenatchee.

Sounds great, I am free Saturday but not Sunday this weekend, I can drive separately if that messes with carpools. I am living in Edmonds.

Neal, I'm interested in something tomorrow, but have also pretty much only paddled the Sky in the NW. If you don't mind scouting, I'm down for whatever. I'll give you a call in the morning. 9one9 270 579eight

A cupdate would be awesome if you're headed to fitw. May head up around 5 if the level is decent.
