So, I posted about this a month ago and the situation has stabilized. Long story short, our POS trailer busted its axle and was left for dead on HWY 40 after we took off of Lodore in June. But then it was rescued! And it sits, with new axle paid for and installed, at a shop in Vernal (just east of the take-out at split mountain).
Trouble is, I'm in boulder and have no plans to get out there or ability to in the near future.
Thus, if you are running any water out there anytime for the rest of this season - and have a ball for 1 3/4 fitting (or can meet me to get mine) - and can pick up a trailer and drive it back to the front range, let me know. I will buy you an SUV sized tank of gas and the beer of your choosing.
You would be able to get within spitting distance of boulder - north or downtown denver area or golden area would work.
thanks in advance buzzards!
