I am planning a trip from Georgia to Colorado...need Advice.

me and a friend are leaving for colorado the first week in June and plan on driving around the state until June 14th. It is somthing like a 1500 mile drive there. We are looking to do class 4-5 creeks and some playboating.
Will it be worth our time and money to drive over there?
We need to know diesel gas prices.
How is the snow melt looking?
How easy is it to find people to paddle and set shuttle with?
What drainages have good water?

That's the perfect time to be here. Buy a copy of Colorado Rivers and Creeks - boaters will be everywhere, especially on the weekends.

Go west, life is peaceful there

I just moved to CO after 7 years in GA, and must say I prefer the paddling out here, not that waiting in line at hell hole isn't a good time...

but seriously, give me a call at 706-627-3573 when you're out here as I am unemployed until 6/16 and excited to explore the waters of my new home state. Plenty of IV+ creeking to be had.

or you can e-mail [email protected]
