Oh no you di-in't.

I hope in the future Americans are thought of as a warlike, vicious people, because I bet a lot of high schools would pick "Americans" as their mascot. -Jack Handy

Uhhohh. That time of year.

Does this mean Colorado's dry?

Should I start waxing my skis, and resolve my weekends to sitting on the couch, in my underwear, crying and masterbating to Kim Reichhelm in Blizzard of Ahhs?

Thanks for the tip... an actual quote from Kim's website:
"Once you ski with Kim itÂ’ll never be the same"

Looks like it will be "Christmas in July" for the rafting companies.... I imagine a LOT of art lover type folks will be coming down, wanting to float below the eight canvas sections.

Smoke em, you are sooooo right. I do need an attitude adjustment. Help a brother out and share. If you see the old thread this was a lightening rod topic. Water is still running some so I am opting out for now.

Yikes! I took a look at those posts from last year. There seems to be a lot more said than I could ever add.
When I saw Cecil's post with no response I was really surprised. Now I see that people can only say so much. It is hard to widen a narrow mind.

Looks really cool! Can't wait to run the Ark during this!!!
Aaaa yea?

BLM News Release
For Immediate Release
John DoW - BLM

January 31, 2008


CANON CITY, Colo. --- The Royal Gorge Field Office of the Bureau of Land
Management has made available the Over the River design proposal at the
Christo and Jeanne-Claude Over the River™ link on the BLM’s website:
BLM Colorado | Royal Gorge Field Office. The 2000-page proposal seeks permission to create and display a public art project primarily on BLM land in the Arkansas River Valley between Canon City and Salida. Before any decision on the project is made, BLM will complete an Environmental Impact Statement as required by the National Environmental Policy Act.

In June of 2006, BLM requested a detailed design proposal from the project proponent, including plans for engineering and construction as well as traffic, event, safety and exhibit removal. In response to this request, the artists submitted their Over the River Design and Planning Report in April 2007. The BLM has reviewed this proposal for completeness and met with the artists’ team to discuss the necessary additional data BLM needs to move forward with conducting an EIS.

“The BLM is looking forward to receiving the necessary additional proposal information so that we can move ahead with the third party contracting for the Environmental Impact Statement,” said Royal Gorge Field Office Manager
Roy Masinton.

BLM continues to work with its cooperating agencies in reviewing the proposal and anticipates beginning the EIS this spring.

I'm not quite sure I understand this??? Is this proposing that artists will be draping artwork over the river?
