    Has anyone been down Das Boot recently ? I've never done it before and am agonizing on wetsuit/drysuit selection for a trip in a few days. I've got a 4/3 full from Tom, with a neoprene beanie, or I can drag my expensive GoreTex kayaking dry suit out if need be. The dry suit has no kneepads/elbow pads but I do have a scuttle butt.

    If someone has been down recently, how much water is there, how much swimming? If I do go drysuit, am I going to have to get kneepads/elbowpads as the place is a shredder or can I get away with being careful and carrying duct tape?

    We were in Zion over the weekend, and I used a 4/3, and was fine. Das Boot isn't very long, I'd imagine you'd be fine with that. I wasn't on the West side though.

    Also, I think that Subway might be closed right now, for a prescribed burn? Maybe, maybe not? Worth checking.

  3. Mike,

    Dan's got the beta so your 4/3 looks good.

    The prescribed burn has been cancelled Monday and Tuesday and we hope that will also happen Wed-Fri as there are a whole bunch of people going that way. Keep your fingers crossed that the humidity will stay high.
