Cataract Canyon in 18 hours.

Hey Everyone,

Sorry that took so long but I've put a post up on the CKS site.
Check it out @ The Colorado Kayak Chronicle for some pictures and a short description. Instructions on following through w/ pledges are included in the CKS Post.

Total number of pledges was over $1,700!

Thank you again to everyone for their support and donations.

Right on Paul,
Check is in the mail. You probably would have done it in 16 hrs if you hadn't stopped for some Cougar killing. Thanks for stepping it up and supporting AW. Atom...

Excellent work Paul! I just sent in my donation. This was a bet I certainly didn't mind losing.

Congratulations Paul and Jed!

I really didn't think that was possible, but you proved me wrong. The fact that you put your own money on the line was ballsy, and it portrayed your true conviction.

Nice work, and thanks for supporting AW.

Thanks for doing this Paul. I finally got around to making my donation today and $10 just didn't seem like enough for what you did, or for what AW needs so I made it $25 (in addition to my yearly dues and additional donations). Glad to support AW!
