I would check with Buffalo Joe's. They had like 6 rafts running through in the middle of the carnage, I am sure they had to of picked up some of your gear.
What is up with some of the commercial groups on the Ark? Not all, but some. Why would they leave someone stranded on a rock in the center of the channel and not help gather some gear in the slack water? Is the rule of the commercials to draw a line and only let the private boats help other private boaters or are we all on the river together? That is not the way we do it in Durango!
I will say, was was very thankful for one commercial raft delivering one of my paddles on the Pinnacle Rock to Parkdale section -good work, but I forgot the company.
I never realized that was Mark Chamberlain with us! Glad I got to meet him, although I didn't draw the connection. Too many Mark's among us, probably! I thought that Mark C. was running down at Taos this weekend.
To Captain Mark of the SS Pinball - Yeah, that is probably a couple booties for you! But you know the line now! Glad you all were okay!
