Careful with your gear out there.
Also, if anyone sees a carbon Werner paddle with CANNON and my phone number on it, please give me a shout.
That really sucks man.
First, everyone thinks of the area as Fort Collins (not that foco is that safe), its not. I grew up there, I went to school at CLP, I learned to swim in the poudre, and I can tell you that the area has plenty of meth heads and shit bags. The boating community is always a safe bet, in my experience, but the fact remains you are in rural Northern Colorado and skecthy people live there.
The unfortunate truth is your gear probably got jacked by someone who doesn't know how to use it, or where to sell it. It will get lost to the sands of time, and the culprits will likely go free.
We have a spare boat that you are welcome to use until you find something else.
PM me if you would like to use it.
