Hi everyone. I'm visiting Salida CO for a month and yesterday was my first day on the whitewater park. I lost my brand new AT paddle so I'm super stoked to see this post on Mountain Buzz, which I learned about when I was shopping for a new paddle at CKS tonight. I will call the ranger and ask about my AT paddle for sure. Thanks again. I look forward to a great month ahead here in Salida. I'm from Saluda NC so this community is just my speed. Thanks, Michelle
OH .... I will post this at the lost and found larger threads, but just in case someone else sees this, here's my post about my lost gear:
Hey -- had me a yard sale while paddling the whitewater park in Salida(I know... sad, but I did.). Never lost a paddle in 13 years of paddling but today I ate it and my husband chased the paddle all the way down river. Hey, it was a new paddle for me so give me some slack. Some fishermen are looking out for it too. I'm in Salida for a month -- now without my paddle... dang it - I was about to bring my old paddle I've had for a decade but my husband's like, "Why do you need two?" Murphy's Law. If you find it, it's my brand new Adventure Technology red paddle and my cellie is 828.817.4034. I will cook you an amazing meal downtown Salida if you find my bad boy. We're renting a house on the river and I'll throw in whatever meat, beer and wine you want. I'll even offer a reward if you need that to do the right thing
Have pity on a girl on her first Salida vacation day. And props to my husband who chased that red baby all the way down stream. Poor thing had to walk/hitchhike it down 50 while I went to various boater take-outs. Can you say, "Saluda NC peeps in Salida CO don't know anything about the local scene (yet)!" LOL. PS: Anyone have $300 I can have? I guess I need a new paddle.
