I know this is short notice, but I want to run bridges or filter plant today (tuesday). I dont feel comfortable going by myself. Does any one want to go with me? I also am available all week to go and would go everyday if someone wants. I start summer school next week so Im trying to paddle as much as I can before that. Let me know.

If I go tomorrow, it would have to be in the morning. I have to be back to greeley by 6 to work. So that means I would have to be off the river by 4:30 but I may be able to run at least one of the runs. Give me a call and we can work something out.

I'm up for tomorrow, or anytime this week, really...I just got laid off today.

I've run filter plant about 4 times before, no problem there...not familiar with bridges. Looks like guage may be getting near 4.0'? If so, CRC has it at IV- I'm not sure if I'm ready for IV- yet this season, only been out once on pretty mellow stuff. If it's more like III, should be good.

How about Thursday evening for a bridges run?

I can get off around 4:30 or so on Thursday. Since I'm in north Fort Collins, that would put me at the Bridges take-out a bit after 5:00. How does that work for your schedule? Call me at 970-420-0334, or email me at [email protected], and we'll set up something up a little more definite. I'll also try to coerse (sp.?) one of my buddies who knows the run a lot better than me into coming along.

Cool. I'm planning on being there. Not sure what your final plans are for what sections to run. Assuming it's not crazy above III, bridges should be fine. Maybe we can do a warm-up on Filter Plant?

bridges @ 3.5'

My $.02 on Bridges:

Ran the bridges run this morning ~ 3.5'. It was way pushier than the levels I've ran it at before, however, most of the holes had washed out, and everything was big wave trains. The difficult bridge rapid was pretty easy, and the sneak was open for those feeling a bit less inclined. In all, I wouldn't call it IV- just yet, but it was fast and had a much more 'big water' feel to it. I'd definitely bring a rope, polish up that roll, and get out the float bags, as one member of the party swam a good quarter mile or better because of the speed of the water and continuous nature of the rapids. It was a sweet run, but not for the weary.

Be safe, and don't let the Man get you down.

Sorry guys for the short notice, but looks like I won't be making it up there today. Thanks for the invite. Maybe some other time soon?

For sure do it again when its warmer, and do the mishwaka section. Maybe this weekend. It was good to be on the water though.

Thanks again! Today was a blast - even with the rain and cold hands. Thanks for leading all the rapids, and the good advice about missing the holes. Let me know if you're up for running more class III in the next few weeks. Take care.
