Re: CNN report on this year's rafting accident stats

Out here in Colorado on the Ark, we have also had a few deaths related to passengers not required to wear helmets. We've lost a few due to complete stupidity too. Like running low head dams on the Ark at night. Stuff like that. I am always surprised to learn that their insurance companies still insu...

Re: Colorado WW update

Been seeing a ton of Midwestern paddlers out here lately. Been paddling with lots of clubs here too. Taylor River has been super fun too. Cheap camping and more WW play park action here than almost anywhere. Weather and water has been utopian so don't miss the action. Paddlingly yours, TJ

Colorado WW update

Sorry I haven't been very visible on the Message Board for many many many months. After the FIBARK race here in Salida, where I was a safety boater, I headed for Idaho and just got back. I know Fish and Curtis Elwood were north out here while I was gone, but wasn't sure if anyone else is coming out ...

Eric,

One of my GC trips was in early April. I remember that the GC was green & beautiful. My photography was lush. Thunder River and the hike was fantastic. Bass camp was lush too. Expect to see more plant material & flower color than any other GC trip.

Hey Fish, Have a great time on the Grand Canyon. That trip is a bucket list trip for a kayaker. Glad to have been there with you. My most memorable moment on that trip was you as you were coming up to the lip of Horn Rapids, yelling out, "Which way do I go?" Keep that foot healthy this time. TJ PS: ...

Re: KWA Facebook Page

Great idea. I set up a Facebook page for KCKA about a year ago. It gains more members each day and has a good number of posts nowadays.

update

The ww trip out to CO went off well and with gusto. Thanks for all the private responses. Sorry that not everyone's schedule would allow them to go out with me. I ended up traveling out with another ACC member and stayed at my place west of Salida. The water levels on the Ark were incredibly great. ...

David,

Count the boat deal SOLD. Let me know if you are headed up to Manhattan to see relatives. If possible, I'd like to do the deal here.
Thanks,
TJ
