We saw 4 paddles in the Gorge today..... Not sure if any were purple since I wasn't realy looking closely. I'll check again the next time.... That won't be till Tuesday at the earliest since I'll be boating else where this weekend. It could be in Pueblo Reservoir by then.
But if I find the paddle: Franziskaner Hefe-Weisse Dunkel
Warning: It's about $36 a case. (20 beers in 1/2-liter size bottle)
"So in two seconds, away we went, a sliding down the river, and it did seem so good to be free again and all by ourselves on the big river and nobody to bother us." -Mark Twain (The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn)
