Moving to Colorado....

Pueblo, that is. Not the best paddling town, but gotta pay for gas to travel somehow. Couple of questions: when does the season start, and what's the best way to get hooked up with someone to paddle with? I'm a SE class III/IV boater and will be out sometime in March.

Best place to meet people is here. Other best is probably the Pueblo WW park. You'll be an Ark valley regular. Season starts in mid march for most, but probably later this year since NM won't be running.

I guess you'll see me at the back of the line. And as far as lawns and washing cars - too much work, and it cuts into play time.

Looking forward to some good people and some quality whitewater.

Hey dlcrow, pay no mind to the noise. We are a state that has been overrun with people moving here so there is some sensitivity. Get past that and come boating with us. We have pool sessions right now and we will start warming up on Parkdale and the ww park in Pueblo in March so send me a message when you are ready to go, dress warm and we will meet you at the putin.....and dont worry, no lines in March.

gh, ppwc

Hey mania. Lets get the facts straight. Your water goes to fill pools and wash Hummers in Phoenix . I wash my Escalade with Grand and Summit county water. . dlcrow welcome Pueblo isn't bad for a boater all kinds of fun just up the road (HWY 50 ). The club in the Springs and hanging at the Pueblo Park. Will get you the hook ups you're after. And as far as the buzz goes we all think we are funny , witty and smart(and in my case good looking). You may or maynot think so. sj

a good season is still with inreach. I saw a weather report that had the jet stream dipping down south for the remainder of Feb and all of march. Which would create a regular weather pattern. We can only hope. sj

Actually, SJ, the prospect of receiving a signed, glossy 8"x10" of your "good-lookin'" self watering your lawn, washing your Escalade, and filling your pool with Mania's sweet sweet western-slope water-- attired, of course, in a pair of bright yellow crocs and a leopard-print banana-hammock-- would be my #1 motivation for moving to Colorado myself.

I'm just wondering where I can sign up, or if there'll be a line there, too?
