Sunday, September 2nd, 2007. Darrin’s elation continued into Sunday, when he paddled the marvelous Androscoggin River.
The Androscoggin is characterized by big, deep, high-volume rapids with few rocky obstacles. These rapids are a joy to paddle - it’s a lot like flying - one can ride the wave trains without much maneuvering around obstacles. This is the kind of whitewater that most paddlers crave. Not surprisingly, Darrin loved every moment of it.
Darrin camped that night in an outfitters campground beside a class three rapid on the Androscoggin. He had a nice dinner in a nearby restaurant, and was able to replace his whitewater paddle with a new Carlisle.
