Gordon River, Vancouver Island, B.C.

We decided to take a trip up north before finishing up the final stages of N.W.V.S. VI. Here is an update from our trip to Vancouver Island.

One of the many waterfalls hidden on Vancouver Island

Our first stop on the trip was the Gordon River which lies on the west side of Vancouver Island tucked away in a maze of logging roads and coastal mountains. At the end of the road on the west side of Van Island sits the small fishing town of Port Renfrew. This town was our base for four days as we battled the winter time conditons on the island. The crew cosisted of Kim and Christina Russell, Todd Baker, Josh Mckeown, Austin Rathmann, Christie Glissmeyer, Jay Gifford, Rob Bart, Jono Ramsey, and I.

Day two - Tuesday
Tuesday morning started off rough for a few members of the group as we decided to close down the local bar, it wasn't too hard since last call was at 9:45pm, and the fresh inch or two of snow in town was enough to slow the pace that morning.

Take out for the middle Gordon and put in for the lower section

Once at the put in and in gear, it was all smiles as we made our way through the upper Gordon. That section of the river was an amazing, classic class IV+, B.C. box canyon. We had a few scouts and a few interesting lines before we dropped into the middle section. The Middle Gordon started out with a bang. The first rapid came right around the corner from the put in and split into three seprate channels, each with its own risks. A few of us decided to run the far left and we all had similar lines off the center.

We came across many fun small boulder gardens and the river began to build into the final set of rapids. At this point everthing had been pool drop nature. We all ran Terminator and worked our way to the Funnel.

Once we were on the downstream side of the Funnel, Austin City Limits was our last big contender. Only Austin and Todd were fired up to run this one.

We ended the run with the perfect blind eight foot exit drop. A steep hike up lead up to the Boogaboo creek bridge and our take out rigs.

Day Three - Wensday

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
[b][/b]
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
