River Loy

I think it is fair to say that I am getting a lot of new ground under my belt because I was on the Loy with Henry and Ron, which is another new river for me. The Cameron Gauge under the road bridge was reading at 1, which is low but it still runs. You just need to avoid more rocks than usual. However 2, on the camron river gauge, is a really good level to run the river at but getting it at the right level is tricky because it empties very quickly.
A really good thing about today was that Henry taught me how to do a 'Boof' stroke, a technique I have been trying to figure out for a while. It involved a lot of bashing off rocks before I managed to nail it. Now I am just looking forward to using it in anger on some harder rivers.
