Good point on bringing your least liked paddle. Most AZ rivers and creeks seem to be rough on paddles and most of the wear on my powerhouse probably comes from fossil. Or throw on the elbow pads and karate chop your way down (fossil seems to teach some off beat paddling techniques, more hands on that paddle on...).
If anyone is thinking about running it Sun, Mon, or Tues, I can probably join. Sat is a mandatory store meeting and I can't call out.
