Wednesday Royal Gorge, 11/22

Hey crew --

I'm seeing 67 degrees and sunny for Wednesday. I plan to go run Royal Gorge.
There's plenty of water -- Sunshine is fun at this flow -- and I don't think there will be any ice.

Let me know if you're interested in a Wedneday run.

Dude, Sorry I can't make it. Go for it solo, though. There is a famous speech in "Wall Street", in which Gordon Gecko talks about greed. If you are familiar with it. Substitute paddling solo with greed. i.e "Paddling solo clarifies"...

You have probably run this more than anyone but Ed in the last three years, so you're ready.

If some Buzzards join you, it's all good.

Greg -- If you spent half as much time actually paddling as you spend talking about paddling (or other stuff) on the Buzz, you would be a paddling god.

Nick from Canon and I are going to meet at 10 a.m. Wednesday and run it.
Others are welcome.

Kayaking isn't really about being a "kayaking god". It's about kayaking. Whether you are hanging with Mr. Hilleke or Milo or just running the Gorge at 500 cfs you are kayaking.

Just paddle baby!!

CB, very zen approach and I agree.

Mike, have fun. Go paddle, you seem to be grumpy without it.

Hey man --

C'mon down. We're meeting at the Western gas station in Canon City at 10. We haven't really decided on which take-out we're going to use.
I'll be in a red Cherokee.
We'll look for you at 10.

-Mike
