LOMA Still Okay
Got my scooter back this morning and talked with the ranger about issues at Loma. He said that they haven't had anything stolen from the Loma launch in a long time or any vandalism. So this was good to hear. I do know they monitor that launch area a lot during the day. I guess I just had the moment of bad luck. However, going through Westwater, was perfect.
Good question to ask, would you rather have a perfect day on the river to come back to some transportation issues and/or a stolen vehicle or have a bad day on the river and have everything okay with transportation and shuttling? I think on the day I went down Westwater, I would have settled for a flipped boat and everything okay with transportation. Last year at 20k, I would take everything being okay on the river and issues with transportation.
I do consider myself lucky to have been rafting all these years and this being my first "real" issue with shuttling.
