A Wet State
A Guide to California Kayaking
(And Lots of Other Locations as Well)
This site was developed originally from the desire to record my experiences of the river and to have it as a reference tool for myself. Then one day while doing my graduate research, I got bored and began this little project. Forgive how basic the coding is but this is my first experience with HTML. While excusing me, also excuse any typos, I will gradually correct them all I am sure. Finally, I designed this code using Mozilla Firefox to get the desired results, thus some features don't carry over well to other browsers, thus use Firefox for best results.
There are other sites out there like this one, however, perhaps people will like a second perspective, or video to go along with the run descriptions. On that note, if anyone has any pictures of rapids which I do not have pictures of and wouldnt mind sharing them, feel free to email me the pictures or video at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get them up. Also, I would like to thank Diane Gaydos for contributing many photos for this site, thanks.
Now for a disclaimer; I by no means want anyone to take anything on this site as anything more that my impressions and my lines on a given day, or two, or three. Some of the runs I have only run once and therefore there may be some errors of rapid orders. Please use this only as a tool to familiarize yourself with a run before leaving to go run it. Always use your own judgement when running a river, scout when necessary and portage when necessary.
With all that said, I will hopefully see you all on the river some day, enjoy the site, and happy boating.
