Is anyone from CO driving to Gauley Fest??

I am in St Louis and am trying to find a way to ship a kayak here from Gunnison CO. without much luck. The boat is a Diesel 75, so it is too big for sportsexpress.com. I also checked with Forward Air, but the closes drop station is in Denver (200 miles).

So, I was wondering if anyone from CO will be driving to Gauley Fest and wouldn't mind carrying an extra boat along.

Or, maybe someone knows of another shipping comp. that I may check into. If I can get the boat to Denver, Forward Air will only charge $50 to ship it to St Louis. Otherwise, the freight comps. want anywhere from $175-$400 to ship it (Not an option).

Another option is if someone has a Diesel 75 for sale. I want an orange/citrus Diesel 75 and I don't care where I get it, as long as i get it in time for Gauley Fest.

Thanx for your ideas!!!

hey gary, a buddy of mine in st louis is planning to head there, and I may join him, but am unsure... if I did, I had thought to fly there and drive the rest with him, but for the extra loot I could drive both legs perhaps? I am unsure of the details, so if you find a real offer, jump on it! but just in case...

good luck!

I want the boat sent to St L or WV from CO

I live in St Louis. The Boat is in Gunnison CO. I want the boat delivered to St Louis, but if someone is going to Gauley Fest and would rather not stop in St L, I can pick it up in WV.

THanx again for all your help!!!

Hey Gary,
you may know him, C. Alder? patent lawyer? we used to live in WV and spent a few years on the endless, he still keeps in touch with some of the guides around there.

sounds like you may have your boat a ride, but maybe we'll travel together after all! happy trails!!
