The Main Squeeze by Soul Waterman

This boat fills the gap between most other kayak companies' dedicated freestyle boats and their river running freestyle boat.  The Main Squeeze was not designed as a river runner, but it is a better river runner (faster, more forgiving) than everyone's dedicated freestyle boats. It is much more playful (easier to squirt, cartwheel, and much better surfing hull) than everyone's river runner.

It is the best surfing boat under 8' long that I have ever paddled.

Bulls Bridge infomation moving to it's own blog

So that the information is easier to find, and stays organized (at least organized by whitewater boating standards), Bulls Bridge information will move to it's own blog at the following address:

http://crackonoon.blogspot.com/

At the top of the home page of that new blog are the following links to help people make informed decisions about the level and the choice to drive to the river. 




My own correlations made in this current blog

Ten Mile is up, Bulls delayed

The rain made the Ten Mile river come up, which is what you see on the Gaylordsville guage.   Bulls Bridge will probably come up a bit over night.   Not sure how much.  These images were captured at 1:15 pm today.

Spring is starting to appear

Bulls Bridge is finally starting to move above fish flow (minimum flow).  The level is not yet registering on the painted guage, but it is starting to get to those levels at which it is worth paddling to Ten Mile bridge and hiking back out.   The trail still has snow, but is packed down enough for hiking.   There is still ice on the trail.   Wood is shifting in the river, but all main lines appear to be clear as of this post (scout and make your own decisions since woid moves all the time).
