overnight raft trip this weekend?

My gf and I would love to get on an overnight raft trip this weekend, if anyone is boating anything. I've got a wetsuit and pfd for her and I would kayak. If anyone's got an extra spot on a boat and wants some company, let me know.

Hey Tim -

We have room on a one night Northgate trip. Leaving Fort Collins 8am Saturday, running Northgate in the afternoon, camping along the river Saturday night and doing a long float to Bennett on Sunday. Right now we have one kayak (Preston), one cat (Christine) and one empty oar raft (me).

Hey BruceB;
We just did the Northgate trip and it was really fabulous. You will have a great time. The river is running very fast right now, so your long float really won't be that long. We ran 21 miles today to Treasure Island in 3 hours. There are some really nice camps right after 6 mile but do remember the high fast water.
TMCDevit... sounds like time for another gf.

"a shorter leash" You must not even own a pair of pants, let alone wear them.

TMC, time to move on for sure. Lost a few GF's along the way who said I liked boating more than them. They got mad and it was over when I said, "You know, you are right." I thought women liked to hear that. Now I am married and my wife sends me boating so I dont make a mess in house. If she isnt busy she runs shuttle and does the liquor store run while my buddies and I boat. PERFECTION achieved.

That's what's great about buses and women if you pass on one another comes along about every 15 minutes.
