I've got a friend who is 28 and a better paddler than she gives herself credit for, but is a pretty solid class III boater. She lives in Winter Park/Granby and likes to boat the Upper, but has run the lower Blue, among others. Shoot her an email at email@example.com. That's a high school email address (she's a teacher), so be careful what you say. Definitely get in touch with her, though, if you're for real. She's always looking for people to paddle with.
