Joe - You are delusional.
1. A mank crew leader should never talk this way. "Mank is dumb." Huh?
2. There are at least five, five-foot boofs to add to the slide which, "doesn't do Bear Creek justice." WTF??? Which brings us to...
3. First I hear some POS Boulderite cliam that Bear Creek is better than the Poudre Narrows after running middle through lowers at 1.678 ft. and even try to argue the point with me for ten minutes and now this - Mr. Mank himself agreeing that roadside blast is not whitewater while at the same time comparing the Big Thompson's juicy steepness with a roadblast filled Morrison canal running with the brown shit water from the nice folk upstream in Evergreen??? This is a travesty. What has the world come to.
And for the last time Johnny. I wasn't calling anyone out to run the Garbage D. I have walked it myself, but the inbetween is the best whitewater on the Thompson if you like class V. Lastly you don't get to paddle much in CO if you walk road blast rapids out of principle. I guarantee of the runs you paddle regularly have rapids containing the stuff that "is the farthest thing from a natural river bed that it isn't even whitewater."
I'm a go run the shit now and haves a good ole time.
Almost forgot - NICE TOM! Finally somebody stepping it up for the 303 - My area code of origin! Joe, you should be embarrassed.
