Claire, look what you've done. You should know better than to bring up dating on a forum like this. Most of us kayakers only use our computers to "alt-tab" between mountainbuzz and porn all day. You really got "comathgod" flustered.

Anyway, sad to hear you are lookin to leave the front range. We are all sure you will do fine wherever you land. Be sure get a place with extra floorspace and post an update so we know where to plan our next extended w/e.

Comathgod....Ok I deserve that. I like that one. My bad, but someone has to agree that Idaho is freakin cold. I have a good friend from Sand Point, Idaho and he decribes the weather in Idaho as cold and dreary 8 months a year. I was in Idaho in February this year and it didn't fell like paddleing was right around that corner.

PS- I'm just bitter I'm not surfing.

Hey Claire

If you decide on Bozeman or Montana, I'm moving from Leadville to Jackson Hole. Lets do some skiing this winter.

Good Luck to you

I've paddled in Idaho mid-february and it was fun (Malad Gorge and Snake R)... a bit chilly but no different from winter (or summer for that matter) paddling in Washington state. Cosurfgod your picture proof is at photos.yahoo.com/xyztimber go to the kayaking album and find the "Malad River" picture- i don't know how to post it on the message. That's a very short but fun little run and you can then hit a good play wave just downstream on the Snake the same day (i think that's the Bliss Wave?). The photos in that album from Maine were in March... you want freaking COLD go paddle Maine in March. Horribly cold!

Livingston... I for sure will keep y'all posted and will definitely have LOTS of floorspace and open doors for my CO buds wherever I end up. Who knows, I could end up staying in CO,... just feeling out the options and the options are feeling good!

Tim definitely stay in touch about where you end up. Holy cow is it time to think skiing already?!

Thanks again for the info!!!

Just a friendly response here...The solid eight month season in central to southern ID months include March thru Oct. This is because there are things that run early here and then we have a killer dam release in the NF Payette. If the res has a bit too much water the releases will start as early as March. There are waterfalls and Big volume surf waves in the Snake drainage that run all year long. This is sort of a Bannana belt area and on a sunny day it can be very comfy down there. So, really, eight months is the high quality part of the season. In reality it's year round.

Bozeman is the shit

I moved here about 3 weeks ago, and love it. The town is great, I'm from steamboat spgs, and it remindes me of it alot. The only things is that it's bigger and better. Kayaking all over the place, if you have ever watched a tgr film, so much footage is from the bozeman area. buy the montana surf book, and then you'll be sold. Big sky is steep, and big. Bridger is fun, but small. The people here are diverse, so you'll meet anyone. It's a big town with a small town feel.

One more plug for Idaho, me and some friends were up there on the Payettes two 4th of Julys ago. The NF of the Payette was 78 degrees!

Sorry Cosurfgod, couldn't help myself, glad you were a good sport.

There is some pretty quality boating near Bozeman, just not sure what the quality of afterwork boating is on the Gallatin as I have never been on it. I've done several weekend trips north for the Beatrap (30 minutes from Bozeman) and Quake Lake, both on the Madison. These both have flow year-round. East of Bozeman are some great run-off rivers, Hell's Canyon of the Boulder (IV+-V), some great play. If you haven't already, pick up a copy of Montana Surf. I've been thinking of another trip to the Madison this fall--if you're headed this way, let me know. Skiing at Bridger and Big Sky is awesome!

Sorry for interupting your thread, but could you email your fishery/whitewater park paper to me at arn@greenspeedisp.net. I need it for a new drop I am pursuing.
