First of all, I have called and emailed this reporter and hopefully she responds. None of the people who signed the note and looked for them the night before called police. Why wouldn't I report it? Well, in my 14 years of paddling that river, this has happened many times. It just never gets reported, and they always come out fine. I wish I could have reached the relatives of the other paddlers to tell them this, but I didn't get the chance until they had already called. The good news is, we have an awesome rescue squad that respected and worked well with the skilled kayakers in the community. Maybe in the future a collaborative effort can be utilized for rescues that require access into areas like North Chick Gorge.
