I would hurry up and get out there if I didn't have school. I'v been out there several times and love it. My dad lived close to Woodland Park for a long time. I can't wait. The Arkansas is almost a whole different river out there.

I have an OLD SKOOL Dancer long boat, but I suck. I can roll, in calm water. Maybe you'll take me out for lessons!

Not sure about other members though.

Oh and if you are hard core, you gotta do Gore Canyon (between Kremling and State bridge) Kayak's only. A raft can't make it through. Class 5 all the way....

I can teach you how to roll in some swift water like some 3s n 4s. I don't know if im that hard core to run 5s the whole way, the worst I'v ran is some 4s. But I might try it. I have kayaked a few rivers in CO before, the Yampa, and the Gunnison, and some on the Arkansas around BV.

My folks live in Steamboat... I'd like to try the yampa maybe! There are also large clean ponds that I could work on the roll again. (At least a T-rescue!!)

There's one section on the yampa in Steamboat where the yakers play. It's got gates setup and everything to practice manuvers. The rest of the Yampa is for tubers looking for a nice leisurely float through downtown.

I know the two sections you speak of. The gates are near the rabbit ears motel and the wave is by the bridge next to the library. I've watched yaker's play there many a-time!

I am sure it is, but the danger aspect is a lot higher! I grew up rafting (My folks still have the 4 person avon frame raft up in steamboat) Kayaking is a lot more scarry to me than 4wheeling though. Hell I've rolled more in Tippy (my rig) than I have in a boat!

I'm not very good Doug. I have to try like 5 times, though in my Kayak class I took at CU I was the first to roll. My Hip Snap is good, but the coordination isn't. LOL

Molly gets cracked ribs and black eyes just walking around her own home, though. So really she gets to experience that everyday.
