I'm not wierded out

Paddling in a Graffiti strewn ditch and throwin down amongst the occasional rusty fish hook seems like normal paddling for me here in Albuquerque. I felt right at home and I'll be back!

See ya soon

Don't get me wrong, Poblo is great after work fun when it's big AND I've paddled in more gross urban settings (hole brothers on the Black in Watertown NY is disgusting...but a great hole Slipped on a used rubber taking out once. It may even be slightly less gross than Confluenza) BUT it stinks like fuel, is in a ditch and homeless people do live in the trees. Got a few ear infections from the water, too. When I go there afterwork my wife comes to meet me from CSU Pueblo and I set her up on a blanket with the dog and a cooler of brews and she watches me dick around. I put her in the shade by the trees above #1/2/3 area when it's hot and there's always a tent there with laundry hung up, etc. I can only assume some vagrant has taken up residence...which is sweet I think and adds to the...uh....ambiance.

FWIW, the mural is bitchin and the ditch would be much less tolerable without it. A huge Bob Marley laughs as you play and some creepy angel thing has a nice set of tits. The bottom line is that at flows over a grand it's great fun and at flows down to maybe 700 it's worth a drive from Condo Springs, the dryest town in the world.

I hope in the future Americans are thought of as a warlike, vicious people, because I bet a lot of high schools would pick "Americans" as their mascot. -Jack Handy
