Congrats on becoming a mom! I have been an avid kayaker for the last 10+ years and became a mom in 2007. I now have two kids ages 2 years and 2 months. Kayaking is still important to me and I try to get out as much as possible. It would be great to get together both on and off the river. My email is [email protected]

Yeah! River Mammas unite! I'm not much of a kayaker, (knee issues) but am a guide,
(& have been for 10 yrs!) I took last summer off to be a full time stay at home mom, but am going back to work this year... it feels sooooo good to be working again! I got out play boating a couple of times last year, but it's just not the same...

Oops sorry Rivermamma
My wife accidentally logged in with my username.
Her user name is Raleigh and I think she left her email on here to contact her directly

Yeah, class II for my baby too, but by 6 my dad had me on class III. I'v been getting some work, it's still early season here though, had a trip yesterday & one comming up this sat. Anyways, Crestone... we've only been there about 2-3yrs. My Name is Elisha, my husband's name is Alex (he has a big red beard & long red hair, I'm tall & blonde.) We play celtic music... you might have seen us at the buskers fest a few years back before we moved there. How long have you been in Payonia? I'm sure if we haven't met, we have mutual friends, Crestone is a smal town... There are actually a suprising number of moms there who used to guide! Only two of us who still do...

River Momming, nothing like it! Took my son of six on two 5 day commercial deso trips 2007. Took my entire family (dad, me, son 7 and daughter's first 4) on a commercial 6 day San Juan 2008. My husband balked as he was not able to row so much in the commercial limelight, so we take on a three day San Juan with two other families June 12 2009.
Hint (in Utah) the May West life vest reads for youth under 90 pounds. If it fits well, the water levels suitable, littler children can raft commercially under this regulation. But take along the Class III and exchange the May West for this lighter PFD to play at the water's edge in camp.
And I find wrapping soft, worn bandanas around the life vest front panels alleviates the chaffing little kids can amass from multiple days of PFD wearing.
Nice to meet you. I am crazy chatty. I beg your pardon.
