Lost 2 oars on the Animas

Yep, flipped on the first big wave in the newly refurbished Smelter Rapid in Durango this afternoon. (In my defense the river was cooking at 4800 and I was in a small Jack's Plastic Cutthroat cataraft.)

No worries except I lost two almost new yellow 4CRS oars. (I think they are 8 1/2') If anyone finds them I'd appreciate a message.

PS The ironical thing is Sioux and I just finished a 21 day down the Grand Canyon and I didn't flip once. (No serious problems other than Sioux getting knocked out in the bottom hole at Upset.) Ah, the ignominy- to flip in Smelter. (If you find my oars it will ease the pain.)
