Paddle and boat on Upper Blue RECOVERED
ALL GEAR RECOVERED, Thanks!
The paddle, last I knew, was wedged on a tree, just below the pipe that crosses the river and directly above the big boulder right-of-center. We are planning to get it out early tomorrow. If someone happens to break it loose, please put it with the boat:
The boat is intentionally stashed on river-right just a little way downstream.
The paddle is a Woody. the name on the paddle is "Tom Martin", with a (303) phone number, but it is not his paddle... it's on loan to me from Wayne at Woody.
The boat is a yellow BigEZ with my name and number inside.
Please do not move the boat, I plan to raft down, then paddle out from there, with my paddle or a spare.
If the paddle is found down stream, and you can get it to the takeout, please leave it there.
If it is found farther downstream than the takeout or if you cannot get it to the takeout, please call Seth at (970)389-5074.
All this should be unnecessary, since we already are putting together a plan to rescue the gear... but, just in case...
