The way it aught to work!!

Funny how manners are a dying art, it's pretty sad.

Maybe the dude was just too 'rad' to show some humility. NO shortage of those in CO.

Sometimes it pays though. I lost a carbon werner on the Taylor a bunch of years ago,luckily some female rafter found it. I gave her 40bucks. retrospect I may have been a little too generous. She was probably hot,I don't remember....

i ditched my boat today knowing that my friend was downstream of me and would round it up and he has a standing offer on the bottle of his choice!
even if you don't get a thank you at least you know you got someone's stuff back to them and that should be enough. although cold ones are certainly a bonus! i'd be bummed if someone cock roached some of my gear that they found floating!
You deserve a good paddling!

I wasn't directly involved in all of the following but....

A couple of my paddling bro's were scouting while another bunch was putting in. A boat inadvertently slipped the grip of the owner and fell into the creek becoming significantly pinned a couple hundred yards downstream. The owner says...."eh, I'm not going to worry about it...I get boats for free".....and left the scene. Two days later I returned with them and spend about an hour extracting the boat......

Bad karma for selling it???

The way I see it. The owner of the boat basically just littered the river by leaving his boat. He made it clear that he didn't want the boat anymore. Just leaving it in the river wasn't the proper thing to do either. So props to you guys for retrieving the boat. Making a little money from picking up some one else's trash: Priceless.
