If everyone is rowing how will you do that with 5 boats?

you have confuzzled me from the start. I don't think you are a bad guy but what the heck dude?

Also I know some guys who may want to go but not without being able to invite a friend. I love to boat with new folks and all but doing 18 days or more with folks I don't know is becoming less appealing as my tolerance for bullshit declines.

It looks like we will have enough boatmen that we feel good about. Some from the internet and some that we know from around AZ. Thanks to those who contacted me. The thread is done.

Sounds like the worst trip ever. What a group of tools, are you sure your not from the front range?

I have been holding back on commenting (which is unusual for my sarcastic tongue) but I can't resist....I appreciate the efforts of years and years of putting in for a permit....I don't get the sense the OP is a boatman??? I thought it was a necessity of applying? I understand this stuff happens but I am leaning towards agreeing with lhowemt; and does this not impact boaters that support their sport, do river clean-ups, become activists, train, support the industry....

On the other hand this affects all enthusiasts in their activities....this makes me think, which is what forums are good for actually...peace to all, including the OP....
