Looking for Poudre Guides to private boat
I'm looking for new rafting buddies that know the Poudre. I'm mainly a rower and I've got a Hyside minimax. This is my first season seriously rafting; I'm a competent oarsman comfortable rowing III+ runs myself, and a mediocre paddler with limited paddling experience but comfortable in class IV water with a good guide that knows the runs (my ex-guide roommate got a grown up job in Denver so I don't have an R2/3 captain that knows the river anymore). I've rowed Mish to Poudre park and filter plant a boring number of times between 2 and 5 feet, and R3'd the same plus upper Mish with my old roommate guiding. The paddling pal invite is open to any solid rafters that know the river well, but I'm mainly looking for commercial guides because I know how nice of a change it is to private boat and I want someone that knows the stretches really well to show me around before I take my boat out alone. I am free every day after July 14th and always game to go out.
