California Dreamin'

My first trip down to Cali for some 'classic' creeking was unforgettable . . .

The trip started out a little rough, as we arrived in Placerville and instead of being greeted by the 'California sun', we were greeted by a full-on blizzard.

Following the cold, snowy day we were lucky to have 80 degrees and sun . . . this raised the enjoyment of the trip tremendously.  We didn't have a lot of time in Cali on this particular trip, but the group got on some quality whitewater:  Middle Consumnes (in the blizzard), South Branch of the Middle Feather, Pauley Creek and 49 to Bridgeport on the Yuba.

    Slow learner or not a good tainnng of ones Hide should serve as a lesson in regard to smoking However if a repeat performance is necessary the climate demands a change needs to occur as to whst going to happen the second time around over the Knees is no longer a option A second timer punishment that has bee earned of course will be needs to get something differentI believe this Brat who continues to disrespect and disobey should have a session with the Paddle and or the Leather strap This of course should be given on the BareAss without question or discussion

    I’ve never surfed, but I’ve loved to Boogie-Board with my kids over the years. The same pinlcipres apply so I can relate. If I wait too long, miss a great wave and simpy stand there watching it fade away I WILL soon be hit from behind and caught off guard by the next one. It’s so important that I let the missed opportunities go and be on the look out for whatever God is sending my way next. Great thoughts, Pete!
