I suppose I shouldn't comment, being a noobie to CO, but I'm gonna. I had never run the gorge before so didn't know the lines or even the names of the rapids. The guys I were with were both long time veterans and knew all the lines so they just gave me verbal beta as we went down, although we did take a quick look at Sunshine. I had no idea the hole in Boateater was coming, or even existed, but simply followed one of my buddies right. He told me beforehand to follow him when he gave the high sign. After seeing the hole I was glad I was paying attention.
Tim, you got me on the boat, All Star beats a Superstar for being more squirrely. I will take a little credit for only having ever been in a Superstar once before. I've got you on age though. I'll be 53 next month. Maybe us old guys can paddle together sometime?
All in all, a really great run. I'm liking CO a lot so far!
Oh yes, Jon Kahn, one of the guys I was boating with, was there in '95 and he remembered 7k+ too. Must have been something.
