just go down there, and stop in at Royal Gorge Rafting and the Whitewater Bar in Grill on the top of the hill going towards the put in ( Id presume Parkdale... or near there.) If you are competent enough, they may just let you throw your boat on a trip and use them as shuttle. Or, stop in anyways and you could see if anyone is game for a play trip after trips. They are all competent oarsmen as well. Have fun.
Do you know Phil-Bob from Taos? just curious...
