River Bum Season

Last weekend was the first water release for the Ocoee river.  The rock slides had everyone curious how this season was going to run but TDOT seems to have done a hell of a job clearing things up.  The big slide fell right smack in the middle of Grumpy's (the first rapid/the put in) but it's somewhat back to "normal."  There is a new ramp and the current pushing right is pretty rediculous, there will be some carnage there for sure this season.  I wasn't scheduled for anything but picked up two paid trips; can't wait to get paid (thanks Jen and Becky)!  I can't wait for TVA to turn the water on full time!

Moving Mountains

This blog is called seasonal occupations, and for good reason.  Up until now I have discussed nothing but climbing shananagans; this however is because I created this thing in the winter and didn't have any money to go skiing.  However, hwy 64 is scheduled to open this Friday and that means it's time for the Ocoee Rafting Season-The Hi-C crew will be kickin it at the outpost to celebrate!  There is a high chance of snagging a PAID trip with some custies!  Thank God the winter is over.
