So I am going to a John Prine concert in Aspen. I would like to get on the water while I am there. I am a solid Class IV+/V- boater, big water, and North Fork of the Payette style boating is where I am most at home. I would not say I am a Class V creeker. I would like to get on something Class IV to IV+ to gauge what boating is like in Colorado, and go from there. I have never boated in Colorado, and don't mind easing into a different boating style. With that said I am about to leave Banks, Idaho from a one month pilgrimage to the North Fork of the Payette that I boated practically every day for the past month. I am a safety nazi, and always have ropes, pin kit, first aid kit, I am also swift water, and CPR certified. On a side note I recently boat a Liquid Logic Flying Squirrel 95, and it does not pair with the type of boating I do very well so I am sticking with the Remix 79. If some one is interested in it I will toss it in the truck. I have literally half a lap on it. It is Brand New. Asking a $1,000 it is marble blue.
