June Kayaking

Coming 2000 miles to paddle with you guys! I will be staying outside of Glenwood Springs. I'm planning on renting a kayak from Glenwood Canyon Kayak Shop. I have no buds that kayak here. The ones I know just party pretty hard. Give me some tips on the the class 4 stuff. I need someone to paddle with. I will be out there during the week of June 10th through the 15th, anybody up for anything? Later Russ

Should be going off then everywhere and being in Glenwood Springs you will have access to sections of the Crystal, Roaring Fork, and Colorado close by. Tons of other stuff within a short drive that all fits within the class IV realm. Runs to consider right in your area:

Crystal
-Bogan Canyon
-Narrows
-Crystal Mills Falls

Roaring Fork
-Upper Frying Pan

Colorado
-Barrel Springs/Shoshonee/Play Park

Most likely will be in that area sometime within your trip, post again as it gets close and people will have a better idea where they will be when.

Gonna be a good spring, you should not be dissapointed

Be Out There Tues. 10th-15th! Who's Ready?

I'm ready for some Rocky Mtn. paddling! Anyone free during the week? A couple of non paddlers and myself are planning on camping, fishing, and drinking for a couple of days somewhere. My buddy lives in New Castle. I don't have anyone to paddle with. Anyone want to show a southern kayaker some III+ IV Colorado stuff? You can laugh at my accent, at least. I have a friend out there paddling, who knows where, probally OBEJOYFULL! Paging Edgar Peck! Later Russ.

Hey if your from New Castle have you ever paddled Johns creek. That was my favorite creek in VA till F'n Joe Looney got the sheriff to start arresting people. Is it still off limits? Keep this in mind Class 4 back east is different then class 4 Rky Mtn. style. Make sure you bring your A game.

Sure Thing!

Never paddled John's but I know people who have. Yea I'm kinda wondering about the Rky Mtn. Syle 4's. Everyone I talked to that has paddles the Southern Rocks have told me that there just long, long 4's with little or no eddie service. Looking forward to it!
