Video: Dan Patrinellis’ Whitewater Kayaking Pin on Icicle Creek

Dan Patrinellis was wearing a helmet camera when he got pinned on a low-water run of Icicle Creek about a week ago.  Here’s his video – it took a while for him to get the throw bag, and he said the hairy moment came when he pulled his spray skirt and the boat went deeper because it filled with water (just take a look at the crushed boat at the end of the video).

For the record, Dan is one of the few people on earth that you can take on a 7 hour dead-of-night car trip through the backwoods of Idaho without wanting to throw him from the vehicle by 5 a.m.  Or maybe that’s just me. :)  Anyway, we’re all really glad he’s OK.
