Need a rower for Grand Canyon!

Hey Buzzers,

One of my rowers on my Aug 1 GC trip just hurt his shoulder and is on the injured list. We have some back-up rowers, but they aren't feeling too comfortable taking over...Cool bunch of peeps from Boulder and AZ. you would have the option of rowing the whole trip, or hiking in at phantom, as we can manage the first 6 days. Outfitted by PRO, so you would be rowing an 18ft Sotar with a few aboard. I can provide more details if you are interested! Tweakers or douchebags need not apply.

respond to this post or text me at 303.396.4582

Cheers!

Jonathan

Just to clarify - is tweaking different from twerking?

Maybe nobody wants to play "guide" to a bunch of city folk... Lots of posts like this on the 'buzz; "a cost-sharing opportunity of a lifetime, just row my inexperienced friends I invited down the river because they don't know how..."

No offense but it just isn't appealing to the typical experienced oarsman. I turned down several invites this year and none of them including having passengers.

My next Canyon trip will be 4 people on 2 boats.

theres lots of folks that want to get on the grand and have a good attitude about helping out carrying a couple of peeps. don't let mister grumpypants discourage you bobblehead.
