On May 1st "On the Gorge Resort" (which is a merger of 3 companies Class VI, Riverman, & Adventures Mountain River) opened a world class full canopy tour program designed by international leader Bonsai Designs. The course includes 10 Ziplines (one zip is 800 ft. long!), 5 Sky Bridges, 1 Rappel, and 2 Short Hikes. The course takes about 3 1/2 hours, and is located in the beautiful old growth hemlock and hardwood forest of Mill Creek Canyon. Below is video put together by John Petretich of a recent trip of me and a few Waterstone Outdoor employees.

I've upgraded from my "dual tent condo" to a studio apartment, and alas, I finally have access to internet during the evening. The eastern part of the country has been getting hammered by rain. Five counties in southeastern West Virginia have been declared in a state-of-emergency, and the lower New River was up to 17 ft (that's big!). I've been out climbing the dry areas (steep crags) and enjoying the beautiful ephemeral aesthetics of Fayetteville during the spring time.
