Beginner Progression #4 in a series of about 6 - N. Santiam River, Packsaddle to Spencer's - March 6, 2009.

Due to the cold weather, we decided to run from Packsaddle down to Spencer's and stay there and play until everybody's fingers turned blue.

It was a great day on the water - 16 boaters, including two in IKs. We again split into two groups to keep the trip from being a total free-for-all.

No major carnage, lost gear, stitches required or discouraged kayakers. The river level was about 3500 cfs.

The Gold Star Award for the day goes to Kevin Lane with his 1st, 2nd and 3rd combat rolls - none of them in Spencer's!

Many thanks for the plethora of safety boaters who showed up in the wind, rain, hail and snow and special thanks to Dave Hoffman (again) for help with everything from leading and photography to showing off his trick moves in the middle of Spencer's. We have you on video!
