Ted, I don't think that we've met, but I'm from Springfield. Another open-boater and I are going to be on the Poudre for a week starting this weekend. We also have a raft and will be running a variety of sections. He and his two boys left today (Thursday) and my wife & I will be leaving Friday eve. We're supposed to meet at Mishiwaka Inn around noon on Saturday. Don't know what you are wanting to run, but you are welcome to paddle with us. Look for a light blue minivan with an Orange Outrage on top. I think he is driving a dark gray SUV and will have a Zephyr.
Thanks for the invite. We might take you up. We are leaving Friday evening also, but not sure if we are going straight to the Poudre, or stopping in the Denver area for some boating. I will keep an eye out and if you get phone reception, my number is (three one four) nine five six-four one seven three.
