Jordan Sherman with a nice paddle toss-pic by Rob Beckman
Ah, NAWF. A fun time of year in Alabama and a great way to end my spring break. Spring break started with a trip chasing grey foxes down Jones Creek on Sand Mountain. More about that w/pics and video can be found here: http://www.granolapaddler.blogspot.com/

I then worked, and was lucky enough to catch LRC Tuesday evening/night at 5" with Dave Levvitt and Ben Davis. I got on the canyon again Thursday with Bama Boys Jordan Sherman, Sam England, Luke Scott, Zach, and was joined by Jake Greenbaum, Matt Fithian, and Andrew Robinson. That night, the festivities began.

Jordan plays Jinga better after a  few beers and some shots of corn whisky.

Friday Started off with the Freestyle Huck Jam off short Creek Falls, which is my favorite event hands down I've ever competed in. Saturday was the day of the Hole Riding Comp and big party that night. Good times were had by all and I can't wait until next year.
