You really gotta have some cojones grandes to drop into the some of the shit flowing right now. More importantly, which golf discs should I bring on the Grand?

I see a lot of posts from Colorado boaters asking questions about our NW rivers. Yours run out of water soon. Most NW rivers can be run all year. Probably why you come here in the summer if you get a permit, right? Think I'll stay here for now, thank you.

Born CO, but schooled in Eugene. Go Ducks.

PNW: Gray and rainy, year round boating, ocean nearby, skiing nearby but with not very good conditions. Cool people. Big rivers, and some really big waterfalls. Floated a stretch of the deschutes once, now that was a shit show, I hope they fixed that. That rogue stretch is pretty cool tho. Steve Largent and Brian Bosworth.

CO: Blue skies abound. Seasonal boating, best snow on earth (with a nod to utah of course), really fresh fish thanks to fedex and ups, only one big river flowing west (but nothing close to the PNW biggies), but headwaters to four major drainages, one of which has multiple branches. Floated a stretch of upper colorado on a holiday weekend, and that was a shit show too (continues to be too). Elway and Gradishar.

MJ legal in both states (OR will soon follow), and we played in the super bowl. And sorry seahawks fans, my beloved Broncos have lost more super bowls than your team will ever play in (I think that's a good thing...). I loved having them in the old AFC west, they were usually good for a victory.

Final synopsis: CO wins based on quality of snow and abundant blue skies! And of course the NFL team.

But you can't go wrong living in either place!

I did lose a contact in SSV last week. It's for a right eye, but didn't have my name on it.

Pearl Jam, Nirvana over rated? No way! Left Over Salmon way under-rated. All favorites. And where I live the Broncos and the Seahawks are both the local teams.

From my experience Colobrahdo is essentially western Connecticut. A bunch of transplants trying to live the rei lifestyle. A bit of snow or a trickle of H20 creates a circus. Was on the lochsa 2 weeks ago at 20k . Everyone stayed with their boats and cleaned up the mess. Never saw a CO plate all weekend.
Sure a few of you are solid boaters, but the lack of precip and transplants create alot of carnage. Lots of snow, year round boaters and true locals give us a real advantage. Come on out in july when flows dip into your "3k highwater".
