Rafting partners wanted - Northern Colorado

I am an experienced rafter that recently moved to Fort Collins. I am looking for new friends to raft with. I am interested in day, weekend and multi day trips in the class II-IV range. Would like to raft the Poudre, North Platte, Eagle, Colorado and Arkansas rivers to name a few. Let's get on the river!

Always looking for FoCo rafters. We may be heading up today to either row or paddle or both. 970-222-7178 if you wanna join. Mostly Front Range river guides though; two big strikes against us on the buzz...

Peter a couple of us are headed up this weekend, probably to the N Platte for Northgate Canyon. If your interested in coming along let me know. We will probably get up there Saturday afternoon and raft Sunday.

Peter, Shannon and Simple Man -
I also work as a commercial guide, former full time, currently part time and living in Denver. I work on the Arkansas, but I have rafted most rivers in Colorado...with the exception of the Poudre, which I would really like to do. I also loved the N Platte and I am looking to get up there with other paddlers. I have a 13' Maravia and I also open boat a 13' Mohawk, so I'm down to paddle.
PM me or shoot me a call or text - six three zero two seven two seven three seven eight.
Cheers, Mark Mueller

I don't have a raft, but I would love to tag along if you need a paddle crew or just someone to go with you. I live in Fort Collins, work in the Vail area. Pretty familiar with the Eagle from Dowd to Eagle. I have my own personal gear.

Good to hear from all of you. Getting out on weekdays is hard for me because of my work schedule but could be able to do it occasionally. It is OK if you are in something other than a raft, I would like to meet all of you.

I think that a run late Saturday morning will work for me. Lets try to do BruceB's trip. Bruce I do not know where Stevens is. Is Stevens to Bridges take out an extended version of the Bridges run? Is the Stevens put in and Bridges take out good for a 14' raft? If so can we meet at Stevens at 11 AM Saturday? Everyone show up, the more the better.

Anyone that thinks that it is OK to to be name calling fellow river users or you think that it is your ramp or you river please do not show up, you are not the type of person I want to be around.

If you can be respectful of others and have a good time then I would like to meet you.

I know little about the Pouder. Is 2.5 ft high or low? Where is Stevens?
