This river is the ultimate front range trip if you can get off work early during the week. There is little agreement as to where to meet if you do not have a boating partner. I have often been required to run solo because of this. At the kern; where I learned to kayak, everyone met at the park in kensville in the morning and hooked up for anything from class 2 to suicidal. We met in morning because this was not an after work run; as it was to far from LA. Unfortunately, there is no coordinated trip pick up location for unplanned trips on the Poudre. I propose a 1:3O to 3.00 am meeting time at the bridges take-out for all interested boaters this year once the great P rises. This is generaly directed at those boaters who do not have anyone to boat with when driving up. Perhaps we will find a more communal attitude like I saw on the western coast as far as joining up with folks. perhaps not.
