NotesGauleyfest weekend 2009 three awesome fun filled days at Twisted Sister. Good luck finding the put in without SteveO SteveO knows the back roads of nicolas and fayette county like no one else. Check out the WV gazatteer and the Gauly River Rescue map to find Lucas and the Laurel Branch road that heads to the Railroad tunnel that cuts off Koontz Bend. According to google earth, to get to the tunnel take Rt 60 to Stringtown rd, to hawver rd, to saturday rd, to lucas rd, to long branch rd, to laurel creek rd which isnt on goggle earth. Updates: The Rivers rafting company campground and lower gauley launch site is now abandoned. To our delight this year we found that the tunnel now has reflectors on both sides and our Recovery dollars have been spent to redeck and railing the old railroad bridge for squirtboat use. On Friday we (SteveO, Curtis, & Stro) arrived before the release and had to creek the less than a half mile to Twisted Sister with 180 cfs. We were motivated to see what the underwater topography looked like at these low flows. Check out the pictures of SteveO standing on the entry ledge, the Pinning Rock, and the Rock that Waits. Sweet sinking all weekend with minimal encounters with the bad neighborhood. By entering the seam tight to the eddy and sinking only about four feet, we avoided the tractor beam and the pinning rocks. All deep drops were quickly aborted to avert the dangers of roaming deep. I tapped the rock that waits several times over the course of the weekend. On Saturday we returned with a large posse that included SarahB, JohnBell, Risa, DanMayer, CurtisWG, SteveO, Julie, and Stro. Everybody seemed to have a good time. On Monday we (SteveO, CurtisWG, & Stro) returned with JoshTracy. Photos of the sink session were by Josh who unfortunately fell and injured his shoulder. stro
