I think they should scale some rocks off the walls on lower clear creek to spice that run up a bit! I also think they should fix the "goal-post boof" that turned into Cripps Hole in 2011. That's what I think.

That should have been done a long time ago, Box is just hard to run at low water and not much fun at high water so why not roll the dice.

Well, can we just shortcut this? Anyone who disagrees with my AWESOME opinion is an asshole. It'll probably be Beth this time. She's always harshing my mellow.

Gannon can't boof.

We should ask cdot to relocate all rocks in CC to make it all class III...so Hojo has something to paddle!

You must be a raft guide....or an intense SUP boarder. I've never heard of half the rapids you rafters come up with for your clients. What happened to just a few rapids even worthy of being recognized.....Blackrock, narrows, rigo, elbow falls, screaming 1/4.

Jesus, what's next? Tunnel 4 Turmoil? Kermit's Cornhole ?

My thoughts..,,if it involves clear creek dynamite the hell out of some of those class ii sections.

That piss trickle is a rapid? I'm going to have to start naming the shit that drains out of my downspout after an afternoon storm.

If they really wanted to do something useful they should start implementing my idea for a "boofing treadmill." It would cost a infinitesimal portion of the twin tunnel budget and might finally allow Tango to learn how to boof.
