When I posted the last video of Shanna and Nicole’s waterfall drop I clicked on one of the related videos and saw this one of people in Creature Crafts running POW in Tumwater Canyon at 13,400 last year – it’s totally insane. Tumwater Canyon is petrifying to me, and at higher levels I drive by with [...]
Dale Bonson got this cool video of Shanna Gachen and Nicole LeBlanc running the waterfall drop on the Wenatchee a weekend or so ago – wish I could have been there!
If you’re in the market for a Daffy Head Trip kayaking helmet you might want to know about this site I found (because, as I mentioned before, I am a gearhead and spend WAY too much time online looking for stuff.) It’s called Deranged Choppers, and yes, it just figures I would end up on a [...]
