thanks for the suggestions.
i like the alpenglow folks (got a kaya there years ago)
...but had to go with rim rock in fruita as they have a put in upstream from loma and they can even grab the boats at the cisco take out. they also rent groovers and fire rings. heck, for an extra $20, they even clean the groover!
also, they didn't need any deposit (alpenglow needs 1/2 up front)
