maybe

Looks like Colorado is sending a steady flow of 800 cfs across the border, so it might hold till Sunday. I'd go Friday but it is my ladies b-day and were going skydiving. If you go Friday, TK would be great to have along, he knows the run well. Atom..

Hey Atom, Joe, Cutch, anyone.

I want to go Thursday. It's going to be warm but getting colder by Friday. Thursday is ideal in my schedule.

Let me know if anyone is in.

Chris.

R2 partner

If your R2 partner can't make it I would love to go. My drysuit hasn't gotten much use since Alaska except for a cold day on Gore two seasons ago. I saw the post on Jacks Plastic from one of your trips on the Upper Box and it looks like fun with some serious whitewater.

FYI: I have guided for the last 6 years, 5 years commercially in CO on the Arkansas, Eagle, Cache La Poudre and Colorado, in WV on the New and Gauley and in Alaska on the Nenana. Non-commercially on the Rio Grande (but not upper box yet), Cataract, Westwater, Gore, Pumphouse, Shosone on the Colorado, South and North Fork American, North Fork Yuba and Merced in Cali, Upper Yough (MD), Ocoee (TN), Natahala (NC), Sixmile Creek (AK), Slaughter House on the Roaring Fork, Bogan Canyon on the Crystal (the first box culvert really sneaks up on you), the Arkansas from Pine Creek thru the Royal Gorge, the Poudre from Upper Mystic thru bridges except the narrows, Clear Creek from 7 pipes bridge to Idaho Springs, Gunni Gorge, and Dowd's Chute to Edwards on the Eagle. Only 6,000 miles so far, but I am working on it.

My r2 partner for friday is out - but I have a good one for Sunday so its lookin like we will be there unless the flow drops out below 600.

Atom you still up for Sunday? It would be nice to paddle with you.

if all goes well we will be at the put-in early early.

cell is 970-759-8272 if anyone wants to rendezvous.
