First suggestion: reintroduce yourself to a little bit of punctuation. Or even just a few more capital letters, really, if you don't want to get too crazy too quickly. Then tuck that bad boy inflatable into your adorable little car, crank the RPMs over the passes and drop in on the high and fluffy Colorado River at Grizzly Creek. Bring some beer in the IK, too: that really helps to motivate yourself to stay upright (be sure to hit all the waves sideways, if you were wondering). Float to Two Rivers if you need to hitch a ride back to your ride, or South Canyon if you've got a shuttle bunny in line. Only knocks up to class II rapids on that stretch, although the tubers and commercial trips on the weekends might make it a II+.

Golden Play Park you can learn in a relative safe enviroment and meet some new paddleing friends. Plus manuvering around the other inflatebles will give you all the skill you need to move up to big boy toys. Unless you can resist you will be hooked and in a hard shell by next year. Gonna be hard to find a rack for a convertable!

Here are a couple more options.

South Platte: C-470 to Union chutes. Nice flat section with a few fun drops.

South Platte Deckers

Boulder Creek town run

The Filter Plant on the Poudre felt just right for a first run. Not too easy and not too hard. You can tube it but we still swam a few times on it in our tandem ducky. Unfortunately the flows on the Poudre will probably remain too low until next spring.

If you don't mind paddling into the wind all day, Pumphouse is for you. If you want don't mind a bit longer drive, Grizzly is the better option IMO.

I have a convertible Mustang too, with a trailer for towing the raft. LOL
