  I'll be out of town

otherwise I would hook up with you. Brooks is doable, but I would recommend scouting ( get out well above the rapid on river left, this is about the only rapid you can scout). Avoid the temptation to run the river left line near the bank. Run Center-left or even river right if you have enough water. Try to locate some rocks or other features at the top of the drop to key off of. And Like I said, keep an eye on the gauges. Right now we have some high water. It wouldn't hurt to develop a plan B on the Greenbrier. Currently, however its more blown out than the New. If things get totally blown out, head to Clay county. Boat on Buffalo Creek/ then down the elk river. Class II when everything else is too high. Video of Buffalo Creek, kind of boring but you get the idea:
