APE’s Lower Doe River Cleanup

saskia wrote 381 days ago:


Meeting at Green Bridge Landing river access across from Hampton High School at 10:00 A.M. to clean the Lower Doe River section to Valley Forge, TN.  Jerry Griffin will discuss the sections that he has mapped and crews assigned at the river access Saturday morning.

Most of the cleanup will be wading and walking the river banks to collect trash. We can still use boats to haul trash out on by pulling them with our rope, but at these levels the water will to shallow to paddle in most places.
We want to get as much trash as possible out of the river, but are looking to clean up to the flood plain for safety reasons and time limitations.  We will carry the trash to the roadside for pickup and removal.  Carter County is placing a dumpster at Green Bridge Landing to collect all trash from cleanup.  APE’s will provide trash bags and gloves to all participants.

Return to Green Bridge Landing by 4:00 PM for a pizza party from Jiggy Ray’s (http://jiggyrays.com/).

Matt Dalton Gets Local Carter County First Descent!

Report by Wesley R. Bradley

The Dalton Brothers (Matt & Josh) have been local Tri-Cities, TN whitewater pioneers for many years now.  They both were the first two local boaters in our area to break +100′ waterfall huck back in 2012: http://regions.worldkayak.com/tri-cities/2012/07/11/dalton-brothers-huck-metlako-falls/

Matt has had his eye on a stretch of whitewater for a possible 1st D way up in the Laurel Fork Watershed in Carter County, TN at the confluence of Firescald Branch and Little Laurel Fork.  I had the pleasure of going on a scouting mission with Matt a few weeks ago after a fabulous Laurel Fork run with him to check out this place and I came away amazed by the possibility.  Lots of big mostly clean slides stacked on top of each other with relatively easy access.

After recent local heavy rains the Laurel Fork got up to 25″ on the visual gauge at the take-out, so Matt and Josh rallied to see if they could give these drops a go.  Matt fired down the larger slide of Little Laurel Fork at the confluence pictured above.  He described what happed at the bottom as a “Turtlely Tu – It was unexpected. I got lucky, but that Aquabound paddle didn’t make it.”

Congrats, Matt!  You bagged one of the last few remaining true First Descents in our area!!  Now what are you going to name the drop, since you ran it first (Here is the list of names he has comprised: the jangler, hadron collider, one-punch Mickey, t-shirt cannon, hellbender, FGM, sir bananas, cruisin’ USA, battle toads, and master exploder)?
