No real details on the aforementioned accident. Thoughts are with the victim and some boating buddies from way back.

I wanted to thank Scott for once again being in the right place at the right time. Thanks for looking out for the All Ameri-twins (and getting my boat back).

Actually, we heard the girl on Clear Creek yesterday did not make it. Only rumor at this point - not confirmed.

Jeffco cops came hauling ass up to the dam takeout spot on clear creek last night as we were getting off the river. Apparently some lady called up 911 or local dispact to report "some assholes are kayaking on clear creek and the creek is closed". Officer verified that A-hole was the term used and that the lady was really angry. Officer wanted to write us tickets for kayaking and was grilling us on whether we knew the rules of the creek closure. We informed him that law enforecment typically can ban single chamber inflatables (ie tubes and walmart rafts), but not kayaks at high water, and that this has already been figured out. The officer did not personally understand the difference between single chamber ban and kayaks until we explained, and he had to radio in to HQ to confirm. After confirming that we were good to go, the officer was nice and friendly and went on his way.

Lesson here... that many already know... if that if the PO PO shows up, know your rights and stand up for them in a personable and non-confrontational manner.

Clear creek is brown and muddy and running huge. Love it! Be safe out there...

Another death today. I'm on the swift water rescue team for one of the departments that responded for 2 in the water. On our way we were dispatched that one was rescued and the other was going to be a body recovery. We were stood down not more than 5 minutes later that the victim was recovered. It was a 41 yo male on a raft trip with his family with Highside Adventures. You can read more here:

Be safe out there... It's really quite dangerous.

So.... The party the was FFLed out of IS is reported to me by a very reliable source to have swam in Phoenix and was pulled out near the Starbucks near the east end of IS. Will see if I can get an update that I can post later today.
