I used to boat ten years ago, and I just got back in as I'm in the Arkansas valley. My roll's pretty solid-- at least in still water and eddies. Looking for similar or better partners. My main requirement is that you have a solid head on your shoulders. My last internet-boating partner ended in a sheriff call, helicopter flyover and me spending an hour searching for him in a patch of poison oak.

My schedule's flexible.

I ran Stone Bridge to Salida. It was a pretty straightforward run, although the high water seems to be erasing all of the eddies. If I had my druthers, I would go for a more pool-drop setup. Probably going over to Gunnison for their festival.

I too live in BV. Looking to paddle Class IIIish this weekend. I have paddled harder stretches, but with the high water Class III sounds about right. PM me with your number if you are interested.

Anyone paddling class 2-3 today? Turns out I have the day off after all. Haven't been out since the water spiked and would like to do something easy. Driving downstream isn't a problem...

Not sure what the flow on Browns Saturday, but above 3K I'm thinking you want to be a pretty confident class IV boater. I'm not sure if can make it up there Saturday, if I do, I would kinda like to do a little easier run, possibly frog rock or something? I did do that last weekend, and was plenty big enough for me at these flows. There are several sections there that are getting close to class IV.

That'd be just fine with me, if you end up going give me a shout, I would be happy to boat that section with you!

Any other takers? Like to do a little better than "probly can't make it" before I haul my boat all the way to Denver and back without getting in the water
