Exploring the Forks of the French Broad

Brian Vermillion and I have had a lot of fun over near Brevard, NC the past couple of weekends with nice mild weather for January!  We both got our PFD’s on WFFB this past Saturday (1/16/16) at -3″ on the put-in bridge gauge.  The level was on the low side of runnable, but we had a great time checking on this new run and we got a second lap.

The Saturday before (1/9/16), after sliding down the Toxaway put-in slide, I had the pleasure of leading Brian and Ben Warf down their first and second runs of NFFB at 4″ on the bridge gauge near Headwater Outfitters.  This was my second trip back to the NFFB and I enjoyed getting two more laps on this run with our second lap being a bomb run down to the Alligator Rock take-out in 35 minutes!  Good times, good times!!
