    If I put him in a fishing raft and rowed him would he come? Solid bottom and a chair...

    Probably. But the last time you paddled anything it looked like a high speed collision with a bridge abutment. Of course I wouldn't tell Cousin David that.

    Wow!!! Put me down for that ride of a life time. I will have a tee shirt printed with I rafted the New with Lostnwilderness and survived. 😱🙏🤪

    Of coarse there will be no shirt if a bridge abutment takes me out.

    This looks like it'll be the last year I coach youth football (at least for a while). Hopefully I can get back on the river with you guys next year.

    My heretofore unknown son goes where no canoe has gone before. Befitting of his screen name.

    hehehe that wasn't the New, me and Uncle Darrell explored some new water and ended up in a Class 3 gorge. He crushed it with his self bailing ketchup dispenser. I never flipped but I did sink...

    My rafting days were up on the Gauley and the New in WV. That back before I found my mothers "special" donor Dr. H2ohhh. I am pretty sure Mom gave him his screen name...

    During my younger days I managed the Circuit City Store in Charleston, W.Va and did the New in a 13 foot raft and 4 friends. 2 of those were females. The river up there is night and day from Virginia, loaded with class V rapids. Lacing into 9 foot standing waves in a 13 foot raft is not for the faint of heart. Neither is parachuting off the New River Gorge Bridge. Like I said, there were females,

    It is possible that our skilled Lost was conceived as the grand finale to this epic day. Only his mom, Lotta Seiman knows for sure.

    I walked into Academy today to get some .40 caliber ammo for my latest addition to my arsenal, a Sig P226, and stumbled into the best clearance sale I have ever seen. It was ridiculous and I gorged on bargains like a smallie on spring lizards. I mention this because every contestant for the Saturday big fish competition must donate an item or two in the prize grab bag, located at whoever has the largest site, whoever you are. Thank you for volunteering to host the group meal. Daze had that site at the last event. However this year if you can't afford it or just don't want to donate a prize, no problem. We are using the Alexandria Ocasio Cortez Socialist method whereby the rest of us donate for you.

    In addition there will be extra credit given for supporting The New Green Deal, modified to 'The New Green Reel Deal' for this event. As such contestants employing environmentally sensitive methods will be compensated for those efforts. Arriving in electric vehicles score points, arriving in autonomous vehicles score even more, since, like the country, you won't know where you're going. Other approved methods of demonstrating awareness include filtering water from the New instead of bringing bottles, using pebbles in place of lead split shot, recycling road kill opossum of similar creatures for fly tying (reports indicate that size 20 skunk tail is hot), avoiding the on site showers, warming local vegetative matter on sun drenched rocks for consumption, providing such matter is not endangered (the South Fork dandelion is an example), and bringing an MS-13 member as a guest. Bonus points for tattoos of Joseph Stalin.

    Conversely, points are deducted for campfires, flatulence, use of reel oil, possession of plastics, displaying American flags, discussions of the U.S. Constitution and finally, ICE is strictly prohibited.

    A small tariff of $2,500 per attendee will be levied to those whose income exceeds $8,500 annually.

    Iíll have to get out my bicycle and hook up a trailer for my kayak and battery operated campfire. Might take me awhile to get there but since Alexandria wants my 1995 F-150 at 12 MPG I guess Iíll have to sacrifice one for the team! Or she can pry my veteran hands off the steering wheel.

    Yeah, that was a cool moment- I guess he reared back to set the hook right as it jump and that fish tail-walked about six feet.
    Glad he can make it!

    I checked the reservation site, the only campsite I can find for the days is the group site. It is able to hold 35 people. Should I reserve that as a bunch of us can use that site. It is a bit away from the water, but it is large enough for several tents.
