In the mountains a drysuit will make the early season a lot more fun. Check this one out in the swap. if it fits and is in good shape this looks like a good deal. If you decide you don't like rafting, you can sell it for what you paid or a little less.

Also call up Lakota, Timberline Tours and some of the other local outfitters as they may be selling off their old wetsuits, splash gear, PFDs and booties for cheap before the season gets underway. Having the right gear will keep a grin on your face when you get splashed with ice water on the Eagle or the Ark.

Have fun!

Hey Emma, ck w alpine quest to c if anyone is having roll practice / instruction. A bomber roll or at least a good river roll is a necessity for ww kayaking. And for peps to want to kayak w u. Good place to meet other boaters too. Competent kayak instruction is well worth it to ramp up your skills and pleasure. Kayaking is totally cool and the funnest, just gotta get that roll down. Have fun! Anybody on the forums know abt pool sesh?

Apparently its necessary to clarify how inappropriate many of the responses here have been. Going forward this type of behavior towards members and specifically women will not be tolerated.
