You of all people should know that the only adrenaline you're getting is when your young one misses pissing on you when you are changing diapers!
PS If you can't get a WW Park in FT Collins now that you are on "the team", then you should know that the next attempt at a paddle park will be utilizing the flow of the NF, which in your mind sucks.
I think the sour taste I have on the nf is I keep doing it and have really only done it once when it had enough water to be fun (it was peak of 2011). If it were sold as 11 miles of flat water instead of a "great intro creeking" maybe I wouldn't be disappointed everyone I ran it. That and the last time I ran it the gate was locked and it was more hiking then it was worth.
I have a girl, she doesn't piss on me when I change her diaper.
Is foco getting in on some of the in progress alternative analyses for water supply that the nf could be an option for a whitewater park? Not sure what is public information but there are studies going on up there.
My opinion on the upper north fork in no way influences S2o or the Fort Collins whitewater park.
