    But rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting,
    Woo Hoo!....What a Ride!

    Man I wish I could have gotten out there for that.

    Couple questions....

    Where is that slot in the rocks at? The only one I know of from my research is on the way down Mossy Monster to the lower NC wall but you guys aren't anywhere near there unless I'm mistaken.

    Also where was that river crossing at? Was that the bottom of Devil's Hole? If so, what day was that on so I can check the USGS waterdata for future reference. I plan on crossing at Devils this fall.

    Great video TZ. I particularly liked the Lead Mine 'gully' scene. Brought back memories

    Thanks

    Between Conley and Spence, closer to Conley... it's above the first bluff shelter you come to north of Conley.

    ...TZ says on the video that they were at the bottom of the Brushy Ridge Trail.
