Hey guys, we decided to cancel the run to LY... I've never run it that high, nor at that low temperature (or in a group of just two), so the combo scared me off... when the water levels go down and/or the temperatures increase I hope to head out there soon though.

Peter, Shenandoah or the Big Sandy sound good.... let me know when you are up for them this winter!

Also, a quick raise of hands -- who on this list is up for whitewater kayaking in cold weather? It would be helpful to know for planning trips in the coming weeks.

Take care,
Rhys

 There are other rivers I would paddle over the LY in the winter time such as the Shenandoah or the Big Sandy - if the Potomac goes up to 5-6' Center Chute will be in this weekend:

If you do go please stay safe and post a trip report. I ran the LY at 7' a few years back and there is a big hole on the L side at entrance.

Really interesting seeing the comments about this trip.  It sounds like it would be really neat to see the LY at higher water!  (but 30 degrees is too cold for me, so I'll have to wait for a warmer high water day).
Hope y'all have a great trip!
