Getting Older and Running Class 5
Yup, kinda bored and thinking about the upcoming season. Here in Colorado things are looking kinda grim-grim in most places- and my two favorite runs- the Piedra and Upper Animas are pretty much destined to have short seasons. I'll be heading to Idaho to run some non-permitted goodness-and some permitted goodness in June...
I'm 45 and I've been enjoying class 4/5 whitewater for the past 18 years-running most of it in a cataraft. I still really like it, but have found that it sure is getting harder to find folks who still enjoy the rush, focus, and commitment to running rivers that demand respect and a high level of skill.
No huge point to this post, just kinda wondering who else out there is also "gettin up there" and still gettin after it.
