It's stopped raining here and looks like it's clearing up  :-\  Clark & I are pretty keen to take Alaskan Rob for a spin while the river is low.

Great run up to the north of the pylons, made sure Rob got to see some skinny stuff  ;)
Gav, RGV, Polarkiwi & Ed came along so Rob got a few rides in all the boats, photo's later.
