Thanks for the great video Matt. You do a good job of getting footage for us out there who like to "video scout". Just out of curiosity, how would you and others compare the Dries at release level to the Lower Yough? Looks very similar on video. Looks like a great addition to the Southern WV boating scene. Filling a needed gap for reliable class 3 water.

Hey Bill, thanks for the comment. I would say that the Dries is just a small step up from the LY. There are what I consider major rapids that you want to make sure that you follow your line or follow someone who knows the line. "Landslide" and "Mile Long" are those two rapids. I would say that Landslide is similar to Dimple- right hand eddy turn and then peel out and continue your decent. Depending on the cfs, these rapids have some different feels to them- with the release I would say even under 4000 they feel about the sale; anything over that level your needing to adjust difficulty. Anyone else agree or have other opinions? Bill- Next time we run, I'll try to contact your for a rip. Cheers!
