Thanks so much to John Ball for finding and returning my paddle. This was the second time that paddle was lost on the poudre and returned both times. I think this says something about kayakers, more so than in other sports they really are looking out for eachother and willing to go out of their way to help another boater out...
Another thing, myself and John had a hard time navigating this site to find the lost and found page. The lost and found page does not show up in the myriad list of forums along the left side. Everyone ive talked to agrees that this site is cluttered and has too many forums which is making finding valuable information harder and more time consuming.
