THU PAD - Catoctin, VA - 330 cfs - Tim Tilson
Author Last Post

by Tim Tilson - We had 7 boats today.  3 OC s ( Gary and Ginny Quam and myself), 3 kayaks (Barb, Wayne and Mike A) and one ducky (Ron).


Ettinger recommends 160 as Zero. Latest reading was 330.    Chart is below.


Grove gives the distances from Taylorstown to the Po as 4.5 miles.   We put in about 10:30 and took off around 1:00 with a short stop for lunch.


Nothing untoward to report.  Rapids were basically Class I maybe some Class II.


Afterward some repaired to a local ice cream shop for refreshments.


This was the first time for all but Ron.  Very pretty scenery. We were amazed that there were virtually no houses along the creek.  We saw only one.  


Just wish Glen Pearcy were still around to have paddled it.  He would have enjoyed it.
