OK, starting April I will be able to boat every day.. Which means I need to come up with a few more paddle friends:) I work 3 days one week and 4 days the next and repeat which gives me two 3 day weekends a month off plus multiple weekdays.. Also as an added bonus this year the days I do work are going to be split shift which gives me a 5 hour mid day paddle break:p
I live in Gypsum so on the days I do work my options are limited to Shoshone, the Eagle(when it starts), and Gore creek .. As for the rest of the time its open..

WOW! I ask for a companion on the river and get no reply! But yet I get criticised for paddling alone? I don't understand Please explain...

I really want to do the Dolores Friday through Sunday but have no takers as of yet. Thought I'd find some rafters but it'd be fun to do as a short self-support, too. Game?

So you wanna weave together schedules?

What a guy! See, one paddler at a time, you're finding people to go boating with! My only suggestion would be a better title... one that grabs peoples attention as an opportunity to paddle regularly with someone who knows when & where to paddle... someone who's schedule is reliable and clear... then you're open to cooperate to make some fun days on the river happen!

Here's my summer schedule:
Monday: Work, then boat
Tuesday: Work, then boat
Wednesday: Work, then boat
Thursday: Work, then boat
Friday: Work, then boat
Saturday: boat
Sunday: boat

Somewhere in there I will have time for other things too! :D

I am very interested in the Dolores. I have nothing between thursday at 5 p.m. and tuesday morning except skiing and/or kayaking. Dirk, call me at 716-400-3772 tomorrow to talk about it, or pm me.

I think flows will hold between 800 and 1200 until their little fish project in mid-April. I'll pm you guys.

I thought you were doing the embudo/upper T?

I need some more info on the Dolores trip before I decide between that and Gore/Pine Creek/Numbers/Skiing.

See you tonight.

The Bradfield to Slickrock section of the Dolores can be done in 2 days (or even 1 if pushing), has the most difficult whitewater section (Snaggletooth IV-V), and was flowing at 1500 yesterday. Is considered class V over 2000cfs.

I talked to a guy at the Dolores water district yesterday. They will post new info most thursdays, however this week's won't post 'til Monday. Sounds like they are already backing away from their original forecasts just a little bit.

Snaggletooth is not class V (until it's your raft wrapped out there). Super obvious and easy scout. One other drop approaches class IV. Several IIIs with miles of II. This is not a difficult run. It is a much better raft run than kayak run, but 3 mile is a hoot at high water. I remember some sweet splat rocks.
