I'm going to eye water levels for a possible afterwork run on Robe, if it's in on Thursday, possibly Friday. I know, I've already echoed these sentiments elsewhere on multiple threads, but to have such an uncanny reprise of this fantastic river...

Who's interested? Call me up.

Why waste the gas doing the robe when you could be on MM? Save the world and run the M today.

Hopes of getting on GC Elwha have faded,   the levels have dropped out.  I'm headed to Squamish this afternoon with Paul, Tatlow is calling.  Have fun on Robe fellas!

The rains are persistant! It's like a reprise of June. And thus I must re-enstate the Robe Watch!! I'm taking my boat with me to work tomorrow (Woodinville). So if it rains consistantly tonight, Robe may be back up in the lower five's (5.1-5.4'??). By the end of the day, it could come back down to about 4.8'--still plenty of water even for my anti-E.L.F. mentality.

As ussual I'm a ludite forever trapped on the other side of the digital divide, so call or text my cell phone: (206)7552336. Carpooling is the best, if possible. But sorry Dave, the Middle Middle just doesn't compare to Robe. My carbon footprint is still smaller than most in this decadent nation!

One thing's for sure: this season I ain't wasting any water!!!

Just a reminder: the little spurts of rain this last week have teased me into a JONES for Robe! Therefore I am activating the ROBE WATCH again. As soon as a flow of 4.5 ft or higher coincides with a day off for me, I am there!

 Although personally, for those of you who have yet to Robe: I'd pick a minimum flow of 5' for a first time. Anything below that, IMHO, is boney if you don't know the lines. There's about a half dozen boney places where a paddler could piton, get pinned or hurt below 5'.

That Old Man Robe is alright once he gets to know you, but he sure can be a mean old bastard too!

In the morning if the river is over 5ft were heading up, of course my cutoff is much earlier than B50 and a few others.

Sorry, AJ, I'd love to, but am now relegated to weekend paddling only!  I'll jot down your # for next weekend, though. Sure was sweet on Sunday!

Ok. Levels look like they will hold. My plan is to run ROBE tomorrow, Wed October 15!!!
The dry wall crew is going to invade my bathroom remodel and force me to take a River-day.

Who's in?

I think I can leave Seattle by 1:30 at the latest. Here's the logic: we're in a cold snap. It's going to be warmest in the early afternoon, and days are getting shorter. Plus, I don't want to fight traffic too hard to get up there, hence the earlier start. Also, the river's only going to drop.

Anyone interested should call my cell tonight or in the a.m.
