Floating back in time

I ran into Gazette photographer Todd Spoth at the coffin races in Manitou on Saturday. It reminded me that within weeks of joining the paper we nearly killed him. He'd never been whitewater rafting before and we sent him with Dave to raft the Gore.

I meant to ask him to send us a note about his brush with death. Then he told me he's blogging about his time in Colorado. Here's a link to his blog. Scroll back a few pages to see his tale from Gore (Aug. 24).

I can't wait to send him to Silverton this winter!

You know what I love about the outdoor community? We laugh about our near death experiences, and can't wait for the next ones. That's why we have such a passion for what we do. Thanks for writting about them every Friday.
