Race is on.
Saturday, August 1st. Noon.
Super excited to get up there and run that stretch of whitewater for the second time. It's true that my only time up on the Poudre was spent rowing Steven's to BTO for two days at 3.7' while preparing for a family Middle Fork Salmon trip. Ruby Horsethief was a relaxed float with some nice cliff jumps and swimming exercise. And besides the fact that I havn't kayaked a single piece of whitewater in all of July, I'm pretty sure that I can still smoke half of you shit talkers.
The belt is an excellent fit, and the Denver ladies (Tina) loves it when I wear it with my birthday suit.
As you can tell from all of the raftings shenaniguns, it's been a pretty relaxed summer. Besides a few high water descents of the Rio Emubudo, Upper T Box, Santa Cruz(arrogant sandbagger beta), Numbers, Gore, SSV (the spike, not the low flow race wknd), and a Lawson to Golden Clear Creek run at peak, I haven't really kayaked. Upper Provo in Utah was low flow, because it's UT. Needed boof practice. Basically I'm a little pissed at the lack of quantity in the quality of whitewater that I've been kayaking, and looking to take it out on some rookies that have been running the MF Kings and some other shit without me. Not too worried about the baby booming FOCO boys stealing the belt back. Predicting a Denver/Boulder battle to the end.
Todd, I have a cracked L Burn you can borrow. Don't worry, I'll adjust the patch for you.
Party afterwords with details in a following post. See you all there. Bring your elbow pads.
