Winter Kayaking and new Gear
Christmas came early this year. I just received the latest PFD from Stohlquist the “Descent.”
What better way to test it, and my new drysuit, then going out in some of the coldest conditions around. The Upper Peninsula of Michigan is the coldest weather you’ll find anywhere. Through working at the local shop here in Marquette I met a guy named Bob, who is in charge of all the dams in the U.P. I gave him a call and found the Dead River to have enough flow for some December action. Here are the pictures from Chris Worlow and check out the vid. I used stop motion from a Canon 50D, so it is definately unique. Let me know what you think.
Chris Worlow and Ross Herr went out on a seldom seen beautiful day of sunshine and snow. All of the whitewater shots were done with a Canon 50D shooting 13 pictures at 6 frames per second. The rest was shot on my JVC HD and my VIO POV 1.5
Shot at the Dead River. Ice dams were an issue so only a couple of rapids were runnable. 15 degrees Fahrenheit made for a cold one!
