What are you doing to protect our free flowing rivers?
I am getting on a flight to Nepal now. We are attempting to run the upper section of the Humla Karnali, but we are also working with an NGO in Nepal who is fighting to keep the Karnali free flowing. We are documenting gps data, imagery, and geological info as well as attending meetings to help support the Save The Karnali movement. Also will be public speaking in Sun Valley in May about our 24hr speed run down the salmon as a fundraiser for Idaho Rivers United.
Displacement or planing hulls?
Planing!
