Looking for paddle buddies

Just started back paddling last year and am looking for people to paddle with. Have done some paddling in the Grand Canyon and out east this year but havent been on the Colorado rivers for awhile now. Would like to start slow with Class 3 and maybe some 4's until I get use to the rivers here.

Hit me up/PM me if you're ever on the west slope/San Juans/Gunny country. The snowpack overhere is getting better everyday!

Yo i'll paddle with ya. I'm up in FoCo. The poudre's startin to flow a bit. I usually paddle alone, which I know is pretty stupid, so I'm always looking for people to float with. I'm starting on easier stuff for now too till I knock the rust off a bit. Hit me up if your ever in Ft.C.

Right on guys. Come on up and hit the poudre sometime. filterplant is runnin ok but i wanna go up to bridges once this rain stops. I sold my yak cause it tried to kill me, so I just paddle ducks nowadays. kinda wanna see bridges at least at 1.7ish so I don't scrape, but it's been above that for a week or so. I'm down anytime someone wants to come to FoCo!! PM me or gimme a call. 970-488-9590. amen

I'm in Morrison and am too always looking for new float friends. It's early and the 3 - 4's are on my list for this season. I'm a seasoned IV/V boater who is getting older and just out of surgery 3 yrs ago (shoulder). So I stick with the standards (at normal cfs) here in CO aka Bailey Gore etc

Runs I'll be hitting after work over the next weeks until it starts going big and getting warm .... Foxton, Clear Creek, etc. We all know them but these are my back yard.

I'm a fly by the seat of the pants after work guy but plan and schedule more for the weekend travels and adventures. So PM me if your interested and I'll give you my contact info.

Keep those fingers crossed and lets have a great season. Good luck and be safe out there..
