    Quake Lake

    WOw, yesterday I ran Quake Lake, which is on the Madison river in Montana. It originally was on a flat stretch of river but a massive earthquake in the 50's turned it into a class V stretch of insane water! Being dumb, I ran it in my wavesport ZG (a playboat) and got tossed around like a ragdoll. It was intense!!!!!!!!
    I'm scared Poncho.

    Bullshit! You ain't afraid of no man!

    There's something out there waiting for us, and it ain't no man. We're all gonna die.

    That is a great run. The S Turn can be pretty gnar, hit it last year at about 1300 cfs, was nice/pushy/fast.

    Was there carnage? Hope not, those rocks are fucking jagged!

    well, nothing too bad, I did most S-turn upside down... I was in my Wavesport ZG. It was a little too small, but next time I'll use a bigger boat.

    I've never run it, know quite a few that have. Balls, bring a big pair.
