Cross Mountain Gorge on Sunday, 4/17

Does anybody want to meet up to run Cross on Sunday?
I may be able to rally a couple of my guys by then, but maybe not. I would come up solo to meet people if need be.
I've never done Cross, but I don't expect it to be stressful for me. Just want to see something new.

Hook up with this local Steamboat Crew (LateNightJonser). Paddled Cross with them a couple of weeks ago. Great, fun, crew to roll with! Cross is a BLAST!!! I LOVED IT! We put on when the flow was 1575 cfs, and it was at 1870 cfs by the time we got off the river.

Here's the thread:
Cross Mountain Gorge (Yampa) ICE Report?

If you're driving from the C-Springs here, and planning on running it SUnday, I suggest driving up Saturday sometime and camp up there at the Put-In. It took me and a buddy just about 5 hours to get up there (Left late Friday Night, and Arrived at the put-in at about 2am Saturday Morning), and that's with me speeeding at 100+ mph.

If you're going to stick it out there, don't be afraid to get it cut off.

We'll probably be out there Saturday morning around 11. Probably camping. Forecast keeps changing, but I bet it will be nice. Flow could rise significantly. . .

Thanks Latenite -

I can't be there Saturday until night.
If any of y'all are still around to boat on Sunday, that will be awesome. It looks like I may have a couple guys.
From what I read, I think I'll be comfy on Cross at least until the 4K area. If it starts approaching 5, I may get nervous...
