What happened next.... So being on the road trying to find new rivers is sometimes awesome but sometimes not... After Huit Chutes we had a few down days organising accomodation for Vail Mtn Games and also not finding rivers with any water!!! After those few days off the water Lou and I were seriously hanging out for some kayaking!!

Our drought was stopped beiefly over the weekend with a race that Pat had been organising but was not enough to get the full buzz back! Following the race we had a premiere of Realm and Rush's Dream Result in a bar in Chicoutimi followed by a $5 cup of endless beer all night! Something that seemed to appeal to us for some reason... ( Section censored and deleted) After the impending hangover we regained focus and headed in to run a waterfall we had come across earlier in the trip but had too much water. A super clean lip 25footer with a soft pool at the bottom. We ran a few sweet drops to get to it and to get out but this was the one we were there for.

We all hucked ourselves off it a few times and lost one Gopro camera on landing!!! Got some sweet shots and headed to dinner with Pat and Vero. This was the end of out Chicoutimi trip so a nice dinner was a good end. Our thoughts were to get a few park and hucks on the way back to ottawa then next day and so thats what we did! Unfortunatly on the last one of the day Blake exposed his shoulder to the river devils and re dislocated his already twice dislocated shoulder!!! From here we boosted to Ottawa to get him to hospital and get some rest before Vail! While in Ottawa we had a couple of days surfing Garburetor Wave which was awesome! Although people think i dont like play boating i actually do!!!

Its gonna be a good one!!
