  • The Trinity is still running high, swift and cold. Please, all you ladies that are attending the Solstice gathering at Camp Kimtu this week, be careful.

  • SO nice to see a “Happy Ending” for once!!!

  • The tv coverage from Redding was laughable. First, the male announcer either misread the script or someone miswrote it, then they showed footage of a rushing river. Only problem was it looked nothing like the Trinity…looked more like the river that runs through Redding…no hills, let alone mountains.
    Glad they’re safe.
