As we sit and put the finishing touches on this huge community effort, the result of which will be a guidebook of epic proportions, I realize that we can still pull all of lotsawater's hero shots in favor of more shots of Joe and Marty. LoL.
All jest aside, I believe the Craw is right when he says that CRC will never be go out of style, as Gordon Banks predicted in Whitewater Classics. "...I look forward to the day when CRC provides new schoolers with some good campfire chuckles and some extra toilet paper." It has always made us chuckle - mostly with wit and well-sculpted prose, but I will never use it for toilet paper. Not the Bible. "No run gives you the adrenaline injection faster than NSV. I recommend arriving directly from your favorite crankhouse in Boulder, jacked on something strong and dialed for chaos - there is no warm-up on NSV."
You are going to want this guide however, as it covers the entire region, including AZ, NM, CO, UT, and WY, with beautiful full page color photographs and more runs than you could shake a stick at in two lifetimes. We will keep you posted but the book should hit shelves the first week of May. Our internet site should be up by next month where you will be able to pre-order the book - Whitewater of the Southern Rockies - coming soon.
