2 arms and a boat

Well we've made it to Green River! The nice folks at the John Wesley Powell museum hooked us up with an old river runner and he drove us into town to get supplies. It's been a fantastic trip so far!

Flaming Gorge and Lodore were fun, and interesting, at low water. The 16 foot raft is doing great after the Yampa brought us water! Split Mountain and Deso/Gray were great!

See y'all soon!

Two arms still? Dam! You could of lost one by now to live up to the legend!

I am glad the trip is going good, with what, 2-3 weeks into it? We will catch you the at the end I assume!

Nice to know you can still use a keyboard, after all that rowing. If you need emergency supplies, let us know.

Hey Randaddy,

Sorry I missed your checkout at Lodore. I could have filled you in on the questions you've been asking. Also thanks for your encouraging words toward my character. Now that I'm back at Lodore for the foreseeable future I look forward to meeting you on your next trip down the canyon. I only wish that you have a good and safe trip. Enjoy the river...

Randy has the Spot device. It's really cool... friends and family can log in to see all the entries, but anyone can click on this link to see where they are right now.

He sends out "OK" signals every day and if need be, he can send "help" signals for food, water, booze to be delivered to the nearest point, or 911 signals to the authorities for an emergency evac, if necessary.

He's going all the way to Vegas, reham.

Thanks K! I will enjoy living vicariously while slaving away on my work computer.

Vegas, right, I forgot about the hookers he has lined up already!

Randy's picky about his hookers. He's saving his last $5 bucks for those girls.
